London has withdrawn its participation in the Erasmus student exchange program. Students choosing England as their Erasmus destination in the 2020/21 academic year will not notice Brexit.

However, for those who intend to apply for their Erasmus grant in 2021/22, this will change depending on the outcome of future negotiations.

The cliffs in the south of England are impressive. Among them are those of Dover, with its green meadows and white limestone walls up to 106 meters high, plummeting into the blue sea. They extend along 12 kilometers from Kingsdown to Dover, and about 12 kilometers more to Folkestone. Once there do not miss the South Foreland Lighthouse (you get there after a nice walk along the coast). And don’t forget to see Beachy Head, the highest cliff. The best places to admire them are Samphire Hoe, near Dover, St. Margaret’s Bay or East Cliff Park, in Folkestone.
