In the case of ‘no deal’ you should know that as an EU citizen studying or training in the UK, you will be subject to UK rules on residency.

The UK government has announced that you do not need to apply for any immigration status or visa if you do not intend to stay in the UK for more than 3 months. However, you will need to apply for “European Temporary Leave to Remain” to stay longer than 3 months.

I am an Erasmus+ student studying at a UK university till 2020. Will my learning exchange be interrupted?
No. The European Parliament and the Council have agreed on a Regulation to ensure that ongoing learning mobility exchanges are not interrupted.

The Regulation would apply to students in higher education, apprentices and pupils in vocational education and training, young people in non-formal learning activities, staff in education and training, persons active in youth work and youth leaders.

You should note, however, that the Regulation only covers learning exchanges starting before the withdrawal date.

Brexit: Protecting Erasmus+ exchange students from No-Deal scenario

A total of 14,000 EU Erasmus+ students are currently studying in Britain, while 7,000 U.K. students are studying in the rest 27 EU member states.
The EU is taking steps to protect university students involved in the Erasmus exchange program in case of the U.K.’s withdrawal from the European Union without a deal.

I have planned to go to a UK university after the UK’s withdrawal as an Erasmus+ student. Can I still go ahead?

Your plans for learning exchange might be affected. However, the Commission has presented a legislative proposal that would, if adopted, enable the EU to continue funding Erasmus+ in the UK during 2019. Whether you can go ahead would depend on a number of factors, e.g. that the UK continues to pay to the EU budget for 2019, on the UK host organisations (in your case the university) and on whether the activities end by 31 December 2019.

My school is taking part in a cooperation project with a UK school, funded by Erasmus+. Will our project continue after the UK’s withdrawal?

The cooperation project might be affected since, as of the withdrawal date, the UK partner will no longer be eligible for funding under Erasmus+.
However, the Commission has presented a legislative proposal to address the situation. If that proposal is adopted and if the United Kingdom fulfils certain conditions, the project could continue to be financed in 2019.

You should check this with your Erasmus+ National Agency.

My organisation is part of an ongoing cultural project, financed under the Creative Europe Programme. The project includes a UK partner. Can this project continue beyond the withdrawal date?

The cooperation project might be affected since, as of the withdrawal date, the UK partner will no longer be eligible to participate in the Creative Europe programme.
However, the Commission has presented a legislative proposal to address the situation. If that proposal is adopted and if the United Kingdom fulfils certain conditions, the project could continue to be financed in 2019.

You should check this with the Creative Europe desk in your Member State.

I am a researcher carrying out research in a UK research organisation with the financial support of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions. Will this support continue after the withdrawal date?

Your research project might be affected since, as of the withdrawal date, the UK organisation will no longer be eligible for EU funding under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions.

However, the Commission has presented a legislative proposal to address the situation. If that proposal is adopted and if the United Kingdom fulfils certain conditions, the project could continue to be financed in 2019.

You should note that Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions will continue to support researchers in a EU Member State or a non-EU country that is associated to the Horizon 2020 programme.

You should check this with your supervisor and the dedicated project officer at the European Commission’s Research Executive Agency.

I am a volunteer or a person benefitting from a traineeship or job offered under the European Solidarity Corps. Can I still carry out my placement if it takes place in the UK or if a UK organisation is involved?

Your placement under the European Solidarity Corps might be affected since, as of the withdrawal date, the UK organisation will no longer be eligible for funding under that programme.

However, the Commission has presented a legislative proposal to address the situation. If this proposal is adopted and if the United Kingdom fulfils certain conditions, the project could continue to be financed in 2019.

You should check this with the organisation providing the funding for your placement.
