Brexit could damage student mobility, universities warn

Some students could lose the chance to study abroad unless the UK stays part of the Erasmus+ mobility programme after it leaves the EU, the European University Association has warned.

Thomas Jorgensen, senior policy coordinator at the EUA, issued the warning at a meeting organised by the European Parliament on 21 June. The UK hosts “by far” the most European students who study abroad, and other countries won’t have the capacity to replace those positions in the short-term, he said.

“Where would we put all these people? There aren’t the places. We’d have to build new dormitories [and other facilities].”
