Can I still come?
The new Erasmus Programme
This detail is often overlooked in the press coverage regarding the UK not joining the 2021-2027 Erasmus Programme. Also, any Erasmus funds from the current 2014-2020 Erasmus programme are not impacted by Brexit, and can still be used for UK internships in the same ways as pre-2021.
Why do an ESPA Internship?
The UK companies that we partner with, continue to create challenging and enjoyable internships that enhance student CV’s and provide practical international experiences. We currently have multiple internship opportunities across a variety of industries and UK locations including London, Belfast and Cardiff.
Despite the UK being in lockdown and travel restrictions being in place for the past three months, students have started internships in both the UK and in their home country. Where they have not been able to access Erasmus funding due to the internship being remote, benefits packages have been put in place to support them.
The UK started lifting lockdown restrictions in March and more restrictions are expected to be removed in April, May and June, making the UK a great place to undertake an internship in 2021 and beyond.
Please do get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about the support we can provide to both students and university partners about internships in the UK.
