star this property answer text <p>On behalf of the UK government and the European Commission, the British Council, in partnership with Ecorys UK, is responsible for the delivery of the Erasmus+ programme in the UK jointly forming the Erasmus+ UK National Agency. In this role, the department works very closely with the British Council and is in regular contact on a wide range of issues relating to the Erasmus+ programme. This includes the question of ratification of the bids for funding submitted under the Erasmus+ 2019 Call.</p><p>While the UK remains a Member State of the European Union, we continue to participate in all business-as-usual discussions, such as the Erasmus+ Programme Committee, which include representatives from the European Commission. My officials continue to engage with the European Commission on issues relating to Erasmus+ and, together with the Erasmus+ UK National Agency, are working to ensure that beneficiaries are provided with as much clarity on the status of their bids for funding. Further information on this will be provided as soon as possible.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The department is encouraging more students into Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education and training at all stages from primary school to higher education. We are improving careers advice in schools so that young people are aware of the high quality options available for both technical and academic routes into STEM. They also have access to information about the variety of careers that STEM pathways have to offer. STEM activities, including employer talks and work visits, are built into school career programmes and the Careers &amp; Enterprise Company funds opportunities for young people to meet a wide range of STEM employers.</p><p>As part of the UK’s Industrial Strategy, the government has committed substantial spending on mathematics, digital and technical education to increase the take-up and better teaching of STEM subjects in schools. For example, the department is funding an £84 million programme to improve computing teaching and participation, and the Advanced Maths Premium, which aims to support schools and colleges in tackling some of the financial barriers to increase participation in post-16 maths. We also fund the Stimulating Physics Network and Isaac Physics to improve the take up of physics post-16, especially among girls.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Higher education providers are autonomous bodies and decide what courses to deliver.</p><p>Dual Degree programmes, sometimes known as double degree programmes, can attract student support if the course is an eligible course, as defined in the Education (Student Support) Regulations 2011. Designated courses must be substantially provided in the UK, which means that at least half the teaching and supervision is provided in the UK. Authority Funded institutions should also comply with maximum fee limits set out in the Higher Education (Basic Amount) (England) Regulations 2016 and the Higher Education (Higher Amount) (England) Regulations 2016.</p> more like this
