New to Erasmus+?

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 

One of the quickest and easiest ways to find out about the programme is to attend one of our Information Sessions. Held in various locations around the UK during the autumn, the comprehensive, free sessions are the perfect place to start for organisations considering applying for Erasmus+ funding. 

What to expect:

  • Our staff will guide you through the funding opportunities most suited to your organisation;
  • Receive practical tips on submitting an application in our interactive workshops;
  • Hear from organisations who have already gained funding and how they were successful;
  • Meet other colleagues who are new to Erasmus+ and make useful contacts.

After registering for an Information Session, the Before you apply section of our website is a great place to look next. You can find upcoming funding deadlines and how to check your organisation is eligible, once you know the kind of project you are looking to apply for. 

The Erasmus+ programme guide is the key document for understanding the funding rules, so be sure to refer to it.

If you are looking for partners, visit the European Project Results Platform to find organisations from Europe and beyond. You can also read our Erasmus+ stories from around the UK for inspiration.
