THE news that after Brexit we will see the end of the European student exchange programme, Erasmus, is horrendous.

European placement has been a major part of many degrees, including language and business, since 1987 and students being able to live and study in Europe from three months to a year.

I hope you old leavers can explain to young people why this opportunity has been taken away.

The old have stolen the future of so many of our young.

Shame on you.
