THE SPANISH government has been forced to back-track on its decision to cut Erasmus grants for this year.

They have agreed to raise the budget to €34 million, rather than the €15 million they had recently announced. Many Spanish students were already studying overseas and relying on the grant when the cuts were announced, causing an outcry.  Jose Ignacio Wert, the Minister for Education, has been under a lot of criticism for his decision to cut grants. He has now been persuaded to raise the budget for this education year (2013-14), however the budget for the 2014-15 course, at least for now, is €18 million.
