Watch: What will happen to Maltese students accepted for Erasmus in the UK?

Chief Negotiator of the European Union for Brexit Michel Barnier said that he thinks that the Erasmus programme is, has been and will remain one of the strongest, most positive and most human programmes in the EU, so they will do everything they can for it to continue.

But now the United Kingdom has decided to leave, it cannot be business as usual and a specific agreement with the UK will have to be allow it to participate in the programme, possibly similar to the agreements they have with countries outside the EU such as Norway and Sweden, he said.

Barnier was answering the question made to him by after the news conference at Castille with Prime Minister Joseph Muscat was over, as a number of journalists were not permitted to ask Barnier any questions during the press conference itself.
