Spanish institutions steer Erasmus+ students away from UK

Several Spanish universities are reportedly advising their students to not go to the UK on Erasmus+ exchanges due to uncertainty surrounding Brexit.

The Spanish newspaper El País reported on 23 February that at least two universities in Galicia, north-west Spain, are advising students to choose an alternative destination for their time abroad as part of Erasmus+, the European student exchange programme.

The University of Vigo confirmed to HE that although it has not yet opened its call for Erasmus+ grants for the 2019-20 academic year, it is working with its faculties to steer students away from choosing the UK as it says it is not possible to guarantee funding.
