Erasmus Plus Scheme What did the EU ever do for us ?

You do know that there is an equivalent amount of money being put into opportunities which aren't limited to the EU?

It's called the Turing Scheme; would be great to get the kids to play an equivalent in the MLS perhaps.

Don’t post things like this, it completely ruins the anti Brexit narrative.😉

One main difference being, if you enjoy your time in the host country, you won't be freely able to go back to live and work there in future.

Seen the Erasmus scheme from both sides through the years.
Hordes of Americans coming over but often just for one term. They flew cheap to European cities as often as possible.
Uk students eventually becoming isolated and lonely at second rate colleges in unfashionable cities as their year dragged on.
Erasmus had became party time for the many and needed to go back to the drawing board.

What’s wrong with party time?

But that wasn't what the O/P was about; it's was an incorrect throw away comment which is factually wrong.

Meanwhile, if you're talented enough, you'll get a visa and do well wherever you live.
Which essentially makes migration a class level thing rather than for everyone. Ironically, this is now strangling the British economy as vegetables rot in Britsh farmfields unable to be picked due to visa requirements making much needed lower class foreign labour impossible to obtain.

Yes I could have put in the other chat but is related to our club.
There was an opportunity to remain in the Erasmus scheme which was declined by the UK , partly because of the alleged extra costs, plus an anti EU/Europe sentiment. So all the opportunities to travel and have great personal experiences anywhere in Europe have been lost.
Thats a big shame I think. Im sure what other countries are going to participate with us on this. We await reports. Plus I think youll find theres no or limited provision in Turing to give the young people any funds to cover living costs while abroad, so probably now for the more well off. I believe it doesn't cover sporting exchanges. I think its a sad loss but pleased the Pool youth team were able to get a great experience out of it before it finally finishes

See my later post. Of course I know about it. Seems vastly inferior . We could have stayed in Erasmus but we declined. We will see what other countries engage with us on this.

Well the UK have chucked it out now though I suspect many participants will have positive stories to tell.
