Erasmus+ is the EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion will provide opportunities for over 4 million persons to study, train, gain experience and volunteer abroad. Set to last until 2020, Erasmus+ doesn't just have opportunities for students but merges 7 prior programmes, giving opportunities for a wide variety of individuals and organisations.
The aim of Erasmus+ is to contribute to the Europe 2020 strategy for growth, jobs, social equity and inclusion, as well as the aims of ET2020, the EU's strategic framework for education and training.
Erasmus+ also aims to promote the sustainable development of its partners in the field of higher education, and contribute to achieving the objectives of the EU Youth Strategy.
Individuals can take part in many of the opportunities funded by Erasmus+, although most will have to do so through an organisation taking part in the programme. The eligibility of individuals and organisations depends on the country in which they are based.
More information on eligibility is available on the pages for specific opportunities (both for individuals and organisations), as well as the Programme Guide, which can be found on the official page of the programme.
