Why we cannot afford to lose ERASMUS+
Silke Mentchen from the University of Cambridge and Andrea Klaus from the University of Warwick on the need for the survival of the most influential of European academic exchange programmes.
The Erasmus+ (formerly the Erasmus) programme supports student and staff mobility throughout the European academic community. Amongst many other things it provides students with the opportunity to study in another EU country for up to a year for free. It also funds students who opt for a work placement in industry or who choose to work as Language Assistants in schools. Not only do students studying Modern Languages Degrees participate in this scheme but it is also available to students from all other degree courses.
