a POLITICO According to his information, Great Britain has rejected post-Brexit membership in the Erasmus+ cultural exchange programme. The UK's decision was made due to Britons' poor foreign language skills, according to a senior British official.

The fact that British students use the program less than other nationalities, which can be attributed to their poor ability to learn the language, means that London pays approximately €300 million more per year than it receives.

Nick Lake, a veteran senior diplomat at the UK mission, told the newspaper.

The official said rejoining could happen if pressure was put on the UK by youth organizations on both sides of the Channel. The EU Advisory Council will urge the Commission to start negotiations. However, the chance of this happening seems slim at the moment.

According to the newspaper, there is a consensus emerging about leaving the European Union “Severe” This has affected the learning and travel opportunities for young people in the UK.

After England withdrew from the Erasmus programme, it created its own study abroad program called Turing. However, a recent analysis commissioned by the UK government found that the alternative system failed to achieve its aims, with far fewer students taking part than hoped, and nearly 80 percent of universities and colleges participating in the program reporting difficulties with the new application process. .
