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.
