Typically when people try to put multiple qoutes in their post, the text directly below their qoute is only relevant to it.
I know that my post doesn't have multiple qoutes but I wanted to avoid making yet another post in quick succession.
There is no point in accusing someone that they do not understand about something if you do not tell them what they got wrong. Other than that, I don't know what you are talking about.
It says: "Erasmus international study programme in the event of a no-deal Brexit. It said it would honour the overseas placements of UK and EU27 students who were abroad at the time of a no-deal exit.". But Iselin Nybø says: "there were still concerns about the future of Erasmus for Norwegians, as Norway is not a member of the EU". For me, her response justifies her reason to be worried as it has only been guarenteed that overseas placements of UK and EU students would be honoured.
The UCAS deadline is 15th of January. Unless if you are refering to another deadline, then tell me. Don't just tell that I don't know about 'the deadline'.
1. You didnt have mutliple quotes and it was entirely reasonable in a post addressed to one person was relevant to that person in its entirety. You cant weasel your way out of that one.
2. You point out for normal applications the UCAS deadline is correct at 15th Jan but that is not final it simply means the guarantee that applicants get equal consideration by universities applies to all applicants who make this date. People can still apply through UCAS and will be doing fro any course still accpeting applications, which will be most of them. The only ones where its more likely to be absolute will be Oxbridge, conservatoires and medical schools.
There will still be additional applications from people who miss the deadline, UCAS extra and clearing.
3. Your claim that that it was only relevant to 2020 applicants is wrong because she made specific reference to warning Norwegian students for this Autumn. That would be 2019 applicants.
4. At the time of her warning the UK government has already guaranteed that Uni fees including Erasmus would be paid as far back as August 2018.This includes Norway. Had she been properly informed she would realise she was wrong and giving bad advice.
Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps Programme – Updated Guidance from Government
The Government has issued an updated Technical Notice providing guidance to organisations and individuals on the UK’s anticipated participation in the current Erasmus+ (2014-2020) and European Solidarity Corps (ESC) (2018 -2020) programmes, after the UK leaves the EU.
Key points from the Technical Notice are covered below.
Upcoming applications - 2019 Call for Proposals
The Government recommends that applications are submitted as normal for the upcoming deadlines for funding in respect of the 2019 Call for Proposals, for both Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps. This will ensure that organisations and individuals can take part in the programmes if a withdrawal agreement is in place.
At the same time, organisations should take note of the scenarios outlined in the Technical Notice as part of their business planning.
The Government Guarantee
In the event that the UK leaves the EU with no agreement in place, the government guarantee will cover the payment of awards to UK applicants for all successful Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps bids. Successful bids are those that are approved directly by the European Commission or by the National Agency and ratified by the European Commission. This includes projects and participants that are only informed of their success, or who sign a grant agreement, after the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. The guarantee commits to underwrite funding for the entire lifetime of the projects.
If the UK leaves the EU in March 2019 without a deal:
we’re underwriting Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps (ESC) funding for all successful bids submitted while we are still in the EU. This arrangement is dependent on reaching agreement with the EU that UK organisations can continue to be eligible to participate in Erasmus+ projects or ESC projects
funding for successful bids will continue for the lifetime of those particular projects
you will still be able to bid for new funding until 2020 if we reach an agreement with the EU that UK organisations can participate in Erasmus+ or ESC projects post-exit after the UK has left the EU
