Erasmus Plus programme

Students studying at Scottish institutions will continue to be able to take part in the Erasmus Plus programme, if they already started their placement in the academic year 2020-21.

Projects will continue to receive EU funding for the full duration of the project, if they had successful bids during the current 2014-2020 Erasmus Plus and European Solidarity Corps programmes.

The UK Government withdrew from the Erasmus Plus programme in the deal agreed starting 1 January 2021. Without association, staff and students will no longer be able to fully participate in Erasmus Plus from the academic year 2021-22.

The Scottish Government is exploring ways for Scottish institutions to maximise their involvement with Erasmus Plus.

The Turing Scheme

The UK Government have launched a replacement programme called The Turing Scheme. This programme provides:

  • funding for higher education students to go abroad
  • limited funding for further education students, schoolchildren and VET learners to go abroad

However, it does not provide funding for:

  • staff, adult learners, youth groups, or sporting clubs to go abroad
  • EU students to come to Scotland
