Thinking about applying for funding? Make sure you've read our before you apply pages and checked when the next deadline is. Application deadlines for most activities happen once a year, although there are additional deadlines for youth projects.

Taking part or applying in 2018

UK organisations applying for Erasmus+ funding in 2018, or taking part as a partner or consortium member, should prepare for participation as usual. Applications that are successful under the 2018 Call will be awarded funding for the duration of the project. You can find the latest information on the UK’s participation in the Erasmus+ programme on our webpage ‘Brexit Update’ webpage.


Applications to take part in the programme across all sectors are made at an organisational level. Once an organisation has successfully applied for funding, individual participants can then apply through that organisation to take part.

The European Commission's Call for Proposals document - available on our key resources page - is published each year and provides high-level details on programme eligibility, award criteria, budgets and application deadlines. 

There are a number of different funding opportunities available under Erasmus+ for higher education, vocational education, schoolsadult education, and youth. We have plenty of information to help organisations through the application process including application support webinars. Please visit your relevant sector area for further support and guidance.
