Why we cannot afford to lose Erasmus+

Andrea Klaus (University of Warwick) and Silke Mentchen (University of Cambridge) have written a detailed report into the reasons why the Erasmus+ scheme is so essential to academia.

The Erasmus+ programme allows university students from across Europe to study in other EU countries, fostering cross-border cooperation and international knowledge exchange, with over 4,000 students involved in the programme at any one time.

The report identifies the importance of this cooperation and the possibilities that such experiences allow for participating students, and draw attention to the significance of safeguarding the programme in the aftermath of this summer’s EU referendum.

The full report can be read on the website of the Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages at the University of Cambridge.
