Study or work abroad - Go Places Go Further

As Britain leaves the EU on 31 January 2020, we would like to reassure all students that the terms of the withdrawal agreement outline that the UK will continue to participate in the current Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps (ESC) programmes.

The UK Prime Minister has said, “There is no threat to the Erasmus scheme. We will continue to participate. UK students will continue to be able to enjoy the benefits of exchanges with our European friends and partners, just as they will be able to able to come to this country.”

The University of Derby is committed to supporting students to seek opportunities to study or work abroad through our Go Places, Go Further scheme which includes Erasmus+, exchanges with our university partners as well as our International Travel Awards trips, to give students a truly international experience and global outlook.
