"MPs have voted against New Clause 10 being read a second time, by 344 votes to 254.

This new clause would have required the Government to seek to negotiate continuing full membership of the EU’s Erasmus+ education and youth programme."

When I have just applied for an 2 year Erasmus Masters does this prevent me from doing this?

I remember them saying that Brexit wouldn't affect Erasmus. I wouldn't have expected politicians to lie.

On a more serious note, this will kill a lot of potential opportunities for students who may never otherwise get a chance to experience the world.

Makes perfect sense.

We want to limit young upstarts going to Europe. They may return believing that the EU is a positive thing. The ideological purity of Brexit must be preserved.

This doesn't mean the Government is taking the UK out of Erasmus. It just means they didn't particularly want to be bound by some tedious legislative amendment - why should they vote for it?

Plenty of people now study abroad in the far east, US, Canada, Australia. Most UK unis do this on a one-for-one with other unis hence meaning students fees dont increase with study abroad.

I see no reason why this wont happen with EU unis, it will just be a different system.

Also whilst this is a huge generalisation, the majority of people on erasmus are just using the year to party (no slight against this, but this program is not exactly encouraging elite academics).
