Comments on: Erasmus architect fears for project’s future in native Wales EU news and policy debates across languages Thu, 30 Aug 2018 01:56:18 +0000 hourly 1 By: Nebiroth Mon, 27 Nov 2017 08:35:16 +0000 If anyone bothers to look up the numbers they will find that about 20,000 students across the entire UK took advantage of Erasmus in the 2014-15 year. Now, given that Wales has roughly 5% of the UK’s population, we calculate that no longe rbeing part of Erasmus would affect approximately 1,000 Welsh students a year. Significant but hardly the disaster being bigged up here by someone who is obviously upset by the Leave vote.

Educational establishment shave always had relationships. The irony is that the chap above is complaining about the global partnerships within Erasmus will be lost, which provides evidence that non-Eu countries are perfectly capable of making arrnagements with Erasmus. if Erasmus can build partnerships with non-EU Japanese or American education, it can do so with non-Eu Wales as well.
