Geneva students complain at ending of Erasmus programme
Students at Geneva University are complaining the decision to withdraw from the European Erasmus exchange programme is a backward step.
Since the vote to end free movement of people, the European Union suspended Erasmus with Switzerland and the university has had to make specific arrangements with other institutions around the continent.
Students say efforts should be made to stay in Erasmus – but the university has given up.
In the last 20 years, nearly 4,000 Geneva students have studied in Europe as part of the programme and the university has hosted nearly 5,000.
Those numbers were climbing every year until the vote.
