Why Border Closures Are Causing Havoc With Student Mobility

Already the wheel has spun back to this. No need for a panic attack. The following material on border closures is designed to assist your understanding. Never again will you need to stay quiet in a debate about Eramus program.


Define border closures

More often than not, you will be asked to explain the key links between border closures and Eramus program.

Which series of events eventually made border closures and Eramus program so talked about? Let us go on a journey together to identify some key answers.

Due to the pandemic the has engulfed the entire globe, many countries have reacted by closing down their borders. This has had a huge impact on student mobility as restless prospective students are stuck in their home country unable to undertake the exchange, or stuck in there their Erasmus country.

Our dissection of border closures in the context of the Erasmus Program 2021 can now be considered.

General misconceptions about border closures

Hopefully you can profit from our well of information about border closures. Launching into new ideas is the perfect tonic for extending your capabilities.

Don't fall into the category of those falling behind due to their lack of knowledge around closures.

Shut your eyelids and formulate an image of border closures in your head. State multiple words that you connect with border closures.

Many people think that the mobility restrictions are only applicable to holiday makers, or people trying to work in another country. However, this also impacts the entire student exchange program any particular the Erasmus program community.

It will be interesting to look back on these presumptions attributed to border closures after you reach the final stages of this post about Eramus program.

So settle in for some informative enlightenment.

The major points we will address are when will borders reopen, what is the future of the Erasmus program and when will there be an update.

Let's start with the following.

When will borders reopen?

Start with a bang.

Unfortunately, decisions are all up to the individual governments and not the European Commission or Erasmus program organisation. This means, but no firm date can be set for the resumption of the Eras us program. It does mean however, that's the Erasmus program will need to be slightly modified to ensure it has a sustainable future.

And that is only a starting point. Now turn your attention onto the following.

What is the future of the Erasmus Program?

Right now, the future of the program is very uncertain.

Not only is the pandemic creating much doubt about the program, but also Brexit. The European Union is yet to settle a on a deal with United Kingdom in regards to how student mobility will change now that the United Kingdom has elected to leave the European Union.

In terms of the pandemic, it still remains the greatest challenge for the Erasmus program and its future. It's survival will depend on how fast a vaccine can be found, and how quickly student mobility can move back to levels of normality.

When will there be an update?

Unfortunately, your best chance of finding out new information in regards to potentially applying for the program is after a vaccine has been found. It is highly unlikely that student mobility will return to normal in the near future unless of a vaccine has been found. Even after the it is discovered, it may still take 6 to 12 months until distribution and new health regulations can be rolled out to deal with a post covid 19 world.

Please be patient if you are intending to do your program in the next 12 to 24 months.
