As a British national studying in the Netherlands, will I still be entitled to an Erasmus grant?
December 24th 2020, 4 pm: The information on this page will possibly be updated in accordance with the partnership between the EU and the UK.
Up to and including 31 December 2020 a transition period is in place. During this period all EU agreements and rules will still apply to the UK. So you will retain your eligibility for an Erasmus grant if it is funded through a project that was approved before 31 December 2020 even if the grant is to be paid after this date. After 31 December 2020, the situation may change, depending on the arrangements agreed by the UK and the EU.
If new agreements are made about participation in the Erasmus+ programme (2021-2027)
During the transition period, the EU and the UK will hold negotiations on their future relationship. Discussions on the UK’s participation in the Erasmus+ programme form part of these negotiations.
If no new agreements are made about participation in the Erasmus+ programme (2021-2027)
British institutions may be involved in ongoing projects, based on funding they received until 31 December 2020 . These projects can continue as normal, even after the end of the transition period.
Depending on the agreements made going forward, British institutions may lose access to the Erasmus+ programme. If so, you will no longer be entitled to an Erasmus+ grant if you are linked to a British institution.
