How will Brexit impact the Erasmus+ programme?

Whatever the outcome of the ongoing negotiations between the EU and the UK, Brexit is expected to lead to changes for Erasmus+. The outcome of the negotiations is not yet known, but here you will find the latest information on how Britain's exit from the EU can affect organisations and individuals.

The situation for Erasmus+ students in spring 2019 in case of “no-deal” scenario

Given the increasing risk that the United Kingdom may leave the EU this year without a deal (a “no-deal” scenario), the European Commission has adopted a final set of contingency proposals in the area of the Erasmus+ programme, social security coordination and the EU budget.

British exchange students attending AU in the autumn semester 2019

In the event of a no deal-scenario, Aarhus University expects to continue exchanging students with our British partners, but in a non-Erasmus+ framework.  

We also expect the Danish government to put forward a legislative proposal establishing a temporary transitional scheme by which existing EU-rights are extended for a transitional period and resident British citizens are able to continue to reside as EU citizens.

You should contact your home university for any updates regarding exchange possibilities.

For full degree students currently enrolled at Aarhus University

The British government and the EU have reached an agreement on a Withdrawal Agreement, which secures rights for EU citizens in the United Kingdom and for British citizens in the EU.

If the Withdrawal Agreement is not approved and the United Kingdom leaves the EU without an agreement (the no deal-scenario), the Danish government is expected to put forward a legislative proposal to extend your existing EU rights as a student in Denmark for a transitional period.

British students applying for a full degree at Aarhus University from fall 2019 or British AU Summer University students attending AU Summer University on a fee paying basis (free-mover) in the summer 2019

The United Kingdom has decided to leave the EU. It is yet unknown what the impact of the decision will be within the area of education, and in particular, how it may effect tuition fees for UK citizens at Danish institutions. As soon as the University has any confirmed information concerning the status of UK students, it will be posted on this website.

Until now, UK students have not been charged tuition fees as pertaining to their EU citizen status. This may change when the UK leaves the EU. Students applying for admission in 2019 are advised to take note of the undetermined situation.
