Erasmus+ applicants

Students from Erasmus partner institutions planning to study in Glasgow

The University of Glasgow will fully participate in the Erasmus Scheme until further notice.

If you are participating in, or about to participate in, the European Union’s Erasmus scheme, you will continue to be eligible for Erasmus grants. This will continue as normal until further notice.

If you are a national of an EU or EEA country, or Switzerland, you do not require a visa for study of less than six months in the UK. You can travel to the UK using your EU/EEA/Swiss passport or national ID card. This will remain the case until further notice

As a result of the UK leaving the EU there will be changes for our EU applicants, keep checking our updates on how to come to the UK to study

31 January 2020 - Brexit Statement from the Principal

The Principal of the University of Glasgow, Professor Sir Anton Muscatelli, recorded a video statement following the U.K.'s official withdrawl date from the European Union.  You can see that here: Brexit Announcement from UofG

24 June 2016 - Initial statement from the Principal

The EU referendum resulted in a narrow but clear decision for the UK to leave the European Union. This is not the result that I had personally hoped for, but I want you to know that nothing will change overnight.

There will be many months of negotiations under the EU treaties, and indeed there is no clarity yet on when negotiations will begin. There will be significant opportunities for the University of Glasgow to seek assurances and influence future policy, both as an institution in our own right and as a member of organisations such as the Russell Group, Universities UK and Universities Scotland.

EU Students who have been made an offer for 2016 (or 2017 deferred entry) will be unaffected. Given the complexity of exit negotiations it is unlikely that the current process and funding arrangements will change significantly in the short term. We are therefore encouraging those who are considering applying for 2017 entry to do so in the usual way, and we will keep all applicants informed if there are changes in policy.

I want to emphasise to my colleagues and to our students from the EU just how much this University values your contribution to our community. You are a vital and essential part of our University. The University of Glasgow was founded in the European tradition, and nothing will change our international outlook which will continue to look to Europe for our academic collaborations. 

There are obviously many questions to be addressed, not least with regard to research funding and current and future academic collaborations. Barring any unilateral action from the UK Government the ‘Leave’ vote will also have no immediate impact on the immigration status of European Union current and prospective students and staff. There will also be no immediate impact on the UK as a full member of Horizon 2020 and Erasmus. 

Please be assured that I, and my senior team, will be doing all that we can to ensure that the University of Glasgow’s voice is heard in these discussions and that I will continue to provide updates to staff and students throughout this process.

Principal and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Anton Muscatelli
