Vice-chancellors warn of Erasmus+ consequences

Universities UK International says UK must make ‘stronger commitment’ to next round of Erasmus+

On 9 March, Universities UK International (UUKi) stressed that “time is running out” for the government to secure the UK’s place in the next Erasmus+ scheme, starting in 2021.
