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.
LSE remains committed to the Erasmus + programme until 2020 when it is anticipated the UK will no longer participate. No alternative has yet been provided to Erasmus + as part of our exit negotiations.
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 in the Event of a No-Deal Brexit
26 May 2019
There is a possibility that if the UK leaves the EU in a no-deal situation funding for future exchanges may be affected. We are keeping the School informed of any potential changes and will update students on the situation.
The British Council have confirmed that they have received a contract for funding from the EC. Therefore, Erasmus will continue into the 2019 - 20 academic year. However, as yet, LSE has not received confirmation of the amount of funding that will be received. Priority will always be given to the Undergraduate Exchange at Sciences Po. Any remaining funding will be split between exchanges and we cannot guarantee full funding.
