The European Commission’s Erasmus programme of funding

The European Commission’s Erasmus programme of funding for cultural and work exchange between institutions and individuals has been relaunched with an increase of over 40% in its budget. It is called Erasmus+

Institutions & individuals can get funding for work, study or training abroad, and the money is available now.

Any individual or institution interested in study, training, work experience or volunteering abroad; or in organising a transnational partnership for their education, training or youth organisation, may be eligible for funding from Erasmus+.

Erasmus+ is the new EU programme for education, training, youth and sport. Funding has been increased by 40% and we encourage everyone in the UK who is eligible to apply.

The UK national agency for Erasmus+ is the British Council and they have a specially-developed web portal for anyone in the UK who is interested in accessing this funding. Interested parties should:

  • Visit the Erasmus+ UK website: The website includes information, advice, webinars and guidance.
  • It is also possible to follow Erasmus+ UK for the latest news via Twitter: #erasmusplusuk
