About Erasmus+

Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport. It runs for seven years, from 2014 to 2020, with organisations invited to apply for funding each year to undertake creative and worthwhile activities.

Erasmus+ aims to modernise education, training and youth work across Europe. It is open to education, training, youth and sport organisations across all sectors of lifelong learning, including school education, further and higher education, adult education and the youth sector. It offers exciting opportunities for UK participants to study, work, volunteer, teach and train abroad.

This section of the website contains information about the programme itself, how you can participate and the benefits of getting involved.

Erasmus+ in the UK

The Department for Education oversees Erasmus+ in the UK. The programme is managed by the UK National Agency which is a partnership between the British Council and Ecorys UK. We work to deliver the programme for the benefit of participating UK organisations, and the individuals who are able to study, train, volunteer or gain work experience abroad through the programme.
