The UK and Erasmus+

I've had a lot of questions about the future of the Erasmus Plus programe in the UK. This follows the defeat of an amendment to the government Brexit Bill binding the UK to remain in the Erasmus Plus programme. I am sorry the amendment failed. But not all may be as it seems at first glance. essentially the Conservatives voted against the move as they did not want the governments hands to be tied in negotiations with the EU. I'm not in the habit of quoting UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson. But yesterday he said: “There is no threat to the Erasmus scheme. We will continue to participate. UK students will continue to be able to enjoy the benefits of exchanges with our European friends and partners, just as they will continue to be able to come to this country.”

Lets hope he is telling the truth. Anyway Pontydysgu is continuing our partnership with organisations throughout Europe and will be happy to discuss any project proposals.
