Erasmus at LSE

Erasmus+ is the European Commission's education programme for Higher Education students, teachers and institutions.

LSE participates in Key Action 1 of the programme, which encourages staff and students to undertake mobilities for teaching. We do not currently participate in any of the other Key Actions  available under Erasmus+.

LSE is committed to the Erasmus + Student Charter and Erasmus Policy Statement.

You can find a copy of our Erasmus Charter for Higher Education here.

Brexit Update

LSE remains committed to the Erasmus + programme until 2020 . You may be aware of the current media coverage following the defeat of an amendment regarding the UK's continued participation in Erasmus+ beyond 2020.  As yet, the situation is not clear and we are awaiting updates from the British Council on the situation and whether we will no longer participate in Erasmus + from the 2020 - 21 academic year.

Updates from the British Council on the UK's position in Erasmus + can be found on the following web pages:

Brexit Update

UUK Statement

Erasmus Exchanges 2019 - 20

10 January 2020

It appears likely that the UK will be exiting the UK on the 31 January 2020 with a deal in place.

LSE has received its funding for the 2019 - 20 academic year and there are still funds available for PhD and staff teaching exchanges. However, in the event of a no-deal Brexit we may be unable to facilitate any new exchanges if we are no longer participating in Erasmus +.
