Are you a complete newcomer to Erasmus+? Perhaps you have heard about the programme or have been inspired by one of our projects and would like to find out more about how your organisation can get involved? You have come to the right place.

The next step in your Erasmus+ journey 

Erasmus+ will be bigger and better than ever in 2019, with more funding available for UK projects. Find out where to start your Erasmus+ journey by taking our quiz to find out which key action you should apply under.

Each year we hold a series of Information Sessions in various locations around the UK, to help organisations considering applying for funding.
