I am currently studying at Aston as part of my Erasmus+ exchange, how will Brexit affect me?

If a Withdrawal deal is agreed, Erasmus+ will remain unaffected until the end of the programme and there should be no impact on your Erasmus+ status.

The European Commission has agreed measures to avoid disruption by recommending to the European Parliament that students who have started their Erasmus+ placements before the exit date be allowed to complete. The regulation will apply only if the UK leaves the Union with no withdrawal agreement in place.

If you are an EU national, the UK Government has stated that in the event the UK exits the EU without a Withdrawal agreement, EU identity cards will remain valid for travel to the UK until a new UK immigration system is introduced in 2021.

If you are a non-EU national the Brexit process will not affect your placement status, as you have already obtained all the required immigration documents.

Where can I find further information?

The University is monitoring the situation closely and will provide you with relevant updates as and when we can. This page will be frequently updated, and any questions that are not answered here can be sent to erasmus@aston.ac.uk
