UIC Barcelona students, PAS and PDI can undertake stays in the United Kingdom as part of the Erasmus+ programme until May 2023

The University is already working to re-establish bilateral agreements with British universities from 2023

The recent departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union has had a direct impact on Erasmus+ mobility programmes between the country’s universities and others across European. As a result, Britain will not continue its involvement with the Erasmus+ 2021-2027 programme, as indicated in the list of frequently asked questions drawn up and published by the European Commission

However, the UIC Barcelona community will still be able to undertake stays in the United Kingdom using Erasmus+ 2020-2021 funds/grants until May 2023, following a special increase in the budget. Work is being done to assess whether UIC Barcelona students and staff will be able to continue to benefit from a grant through some other means after this date.

This situation does not mark the end of mobility relationships between British universities and UIC Barcelona. To make sure of this, the University's International Relations Service is working to re-establish bilateral agreements with the British universities with which our institution has had mobility agreements until now.

As an alternative to the Erasmus+ programme, the UK’s Department for Education has introduced the Turing Scheme, an international mobility programme exclusively for students enrolled in British institutions.
