Maltese students applying for Erasmus can still get UK placements, despite Brexit

Every year, University of Malta students are given the opportunity to participate in an exchange programme, where they can continue their studies at a foreign university for a few months of their scholastic year.

Each exchange is designed to enable the student to gain valuable international experience, either by studying part of their degree abroad, or undertaking a work placement (traineeship).

“All successful 2020 Erasmus call applicants (Universities) will be able to collaborate with the UK for the full duration of their project. This means that selected 2020 Erasmus+ projects will be able to send participants to the UK as well as host UK participants,” UOM writes.

The UK Government has stated that it remains open to participation in the new programmes from 2021 until 2027, and this will be part of their negotiations with the EU in the coming months.
University of Malta students and staff will be able to apply for Erasmus placements in the UK during the upcoming academic year 2020/2021.
Students who had secured or been allocated placements in the UK during the current academic year (including the summer months) will receive Erasmus grants.
Funds are also available on a first-come first-served basis for students wishing to pursue a traineeship in the UK until September 2020.
