Erasmus+ partner institutions

We would like to reassure our Erasmus+ partners that we very much value our exchange partnerships and look forward to welcoming your students on exchange with us over the coming years.

The guidance will be reviewed regularly and updated as appropriate. You are advised to check this page regularly for further updates.

UK-EU exchanges through Erasmus+ will continue for projects won under the 2020 call or earlier, for the full duration of their grant agreements.

The European Commission has stated:

"The Withdrawal Agreement foresees that UK-based legal entities will continue to be fully eligible to participate and receive funding in the current 2014-2020 EU programmes, including Horizon 2020, as if the UK were a member state until the closure of these programmes. This means that UK beneficiaries can continue – without interruption – to receive grants awarded under the current and previous MFFs until their end dates, even if these are after 2020."

Cardiff University will therefore continue to warmly welcome students from our European partners on exchange until the end of the current Erasmus+ programme. We will continue to communicate with all partners in relation to extending Erasmus+ agreements or developing new agreements outside of the programme as required.

A new Erasmus programme is being developed for 2021-27. The UK’s participation in this new programme has yet to be decided by the UK government and remains a matter for the upcoming EU-UK negotiations. We will update all partners as soon as we have confirmation.


We encourage partner institutions to continue to nominate students to Cardiff as normal for the 2020/21 academic year. We look forward to welcoming your students to study at Cardiff University.


We very much look forward to our continuing cooperation. If you have any questions, or would like further clarification, please contact the Erasmus+ Office.
