In response to queries about the future of the GLOCAL programme and the University of Glasgow’s participation in the programme in light of Brexit:

21 February 2020

“We would like to assure students and applicants that their current or future participation in GLOCAL will not be impacted by Brexit. The programme will continue to run until the end of its current funding period in 2025 and we anticipate that it will continue beyond then.

The Withdrawal Agreement foresees that the UK will continue to participate in the current 2014-2020 EU programmes, including Erasmus+, as if the UK was an EU Member State until the closure of the programmes. This means that UK beneficiaries can continue to take part in grants awarded under the current MFF until their end date, even if it is after 2020. 

This means that the GLOCAL programme will continue to run in its current form until at least the 2023-2025 intake.  

As a UK-based institution, the University of Glasgow will fully participate in Erasmus+ until further notice.

We will keep all students and applicants up to date with information as it becomes available.”
