Will Erasmus scheme continue after Brexit?

The Erasmus scheme is an EU programme that helps students study in other countries.

Currently 53% of UK university students who do learn abroad, do so through the scheme.

In 2016-17, 16,561 UK students participated in overseas programmes, while 31,727 EU nationals came to the UK.

Erasmus is also involved in vocational training and work overseas, as well as with teachers who want to work or train abroad.
