Cardiff students on Erasmus+ placements during the 2019/20 academic year

Information for Cardiff University students studying and working abroad through Erasmus+.

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

Erasmus+ grants

The UK will continue to participate in the current cycle of Erasmus+ until it finishes at the end of the academic year 2020/21. As a participating student on an Erasmus+ placement, you will receive funding through the programme.

Completing documentation

You must continue to complete your Erasmus+ documentation as normal, in order to receive your grant.


Under the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement, travel to the EU will not be restricted and shall remain the same until 31 December 2020.


For Cardiff students arriving in their placement country after the EU exit date, you may wish to follow the advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and ensure you have at least six months' validity remaining on your passport from your date of arrival.

EU students who are currently abroad on placements

Under the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement, you will be able to return to the UK and continue your studies with us. We would however advise that you carry with you your proof of enrolment letter to confirm the details of your course at Cardiff University. Sign in to your SIMS online account for a copy of your enrolment letter.

Once back in the UK, you are advised to check this page again, in case there is any further action you need to take.
