Brexit

Since the UK left the EU the stay in the UK for an internship has been significantly more difficult. It requires a lot more time and effort in order to get a visa. Please inform yourself and find information on the website of the embassy. Also, Erasmus+ scholarships are from Fall 2022 semester no longer available to students that go to the UK.
