THE TRANSITION PERIOD
Updated on 3 February 2020
The UK has now agreed a deal and left the EU on 31 January 2020.
Under the Withdrawal Agreement negotiated with the EU, the UK will continue to participate fully in the current (2014-2020) Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps (ESC) programmes.
This means that the projects successfully bid for during the current (2014-2020) Erasmus+ and ESC programmes will continue to receive EU funding for the full duration of the project, including those where funding runs beyond 2020 and the end of the transition period.
As a result, the UK government guarantee of EU funding will no longer be required and the Erasmus+ and ESC guarantee IT system has been closed.
All existing Erasmus+ and ESC projects that have a contract to deliver funded activities are advised to continue to do so. Organisations intending to submit applications for centralised (administered by the European Commission) and de-centralised (administered by the National Agency) funding should also continue to apply as planned, in line with the published funding deadlines.
Participants who study, train, volunteer or spend time abroad through Erasmus+ and ESC exchanges that were successfully bid for during the current Erasmus+ and ESC programmes (2014-2020) will be able to participate fully and for the full duration of their exchange. This covers UK participants going abroad, as well as international participants coming to the UK.
