This Christmas, many UK students will be briefly coming home to celebrate Christmas with their families in the middle of their Erasmus year abroad.

Between 2014-2017 over 1,000 higher education applications have been made by UK students to go and study in higher education institutions in the European Union.

During the negotiations the Conservative Government, ironically led in this by Boris Johnson's smarter brother, showed some willingness to keep UK students involved in the programme if and when the UK leaves the EU.  However there is a long way to go and bringing pressure to bear is important. My colleague Rory Palmer MEP has put a petition on line and if you want to help you should sign it here and share it to your friends and colleagues.
