Update Corona virus May 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic is far from over which causes uncertainty whether exchange in the study year 2021-2022 can take place as usual. The start date of the exchange programme, the destination with its national or institutional travel restrictions, the travel policy of the Dutch government and of Wageningen University & Research will affect whether or not the exchange for you will go ahead. For WUR it is important that the exchange destination is green or yellow at the start of the exchange programme. Still, more severe restrictions might be introduced any moment. Chances that student exchange can proceed as normal are more likely for the 2nd semester, especially the non-EU destinations might not yet be accessible in the 1st semester. To reduce risks of cancellation, if possible, take this into account when making your choice.

Update Brexit Jan 5th 2021
Although the UK will no longer participate in the Erasmus+ programme, Wageningen University will continue its existing student exchange programmes with British universities. Furthermore, for the study year 2021-2022, Erasmus+ grants will still be available for exchange students going to the UK (the grants are covered by previously provided funds). Please be aware that after Brexit, a student visa might be necessary to study in the UK.
