Brexit Britain is hailed as ‘cheaper and more global,’ as a new scheme outperforms Erasmus in the EU.
BREXIT Britain’s study abroad scheme has been hailed as a success in the EU, demonstrating that it is “cheaper and more global” than the bloc’s Erasmus program.
Since the United Kingdom left the European Union in January 2021, it is no longer a part of the Erasmus program.
The government, on the other hand, announced the Turing scheme, which will fund an estimated 40,000 students across universities, colleges, and schools.
It gives students the opportunity to participate in placements all over the world.
The government has decided to extend the scheme for another three years, with a £110 million budget for 202223.
It places British students in 159 locations around the world, including Canada, Japan, Australia, and the United States.
Nexit supporters in the Netherlands praised the plan, accusing Remainers of scaremongering when they warned that the UK would lose out if it left the Erasmus program.
“Erasmus is a European Union program that allows students to study in other European Union countries,” they said.
“It was feared that after Brexit, the British would lose their ability to do so.”
“The United Kingdom now has its own student program (Turing), which is less expensive and more international.
“It was more scaremongering.”
It has been hailed as being more comprehensive than Erasmus placements while also being less expensive.
In an attack on the Scottish lockdown, Sturgeon has been compared to Hirohito.
According to Top Universities, the EU Erasmus program costs the UK around €160 million per year, or roughly £134 million.
During the Brexit talks, Mr Johnson stated that “the Erasmus scheme is not in jeopardy, and we will continue to participate in it.”
However, after securing a trade deal in December 2020, Prime Minister May announced that he had made the “tough decision” to exit the scheme due to financial concerns.
Following the United Kingdom’s exit from the EU, the number of students and research grants at Scottish universities plummeted.

This, according to the Scottish government, is due to the UK’s withdrawal from the Erasmus Plus exchange program.
“It is baffling, and to be honest, an act of cultural vandalism,” Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said in May last year.
