FEARS are growing for a popular student european exchange scheme as Brexit tension mounts.
The Erasmus scheme, which sees Brits go to overseas universities in Spain, Portugal, Italy, Poland, Greece and the Americas.
Around 31 students graduated from the European Union funded, continental project from St Andrews University in Scotland this month.
Spanish Lecturer at St Andrews, Professor Gustavo San Román said: “We hope and believe that the UK will continue to be a member of the Erasmus programme, but this is of course to be negotiated.” he adds:
“It would certainly be a pity not to be able to be part of a programme such as this one, which St Andrews contributed to creating and which has gone from strength to strength in its 11-year history.”
