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.
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:
UUK have released a statement about the government's notice on underwriting grants.
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 +.
