Erasmus+

The European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport (2014-2020)

 

Why Erasmus+?

Europe must equip its citizens with the education, skills and creativity that they need in a knowledge society. The world is changing fast, and education systems need to modernise and adapt to to new ways of teaching and learning and embrace the new opportunities that exist. Education, training and non-formal youth learning are key to creating jobs and improving Europe's competitiveness. That's why Erasmus+ will make a key contribution to addressing these challenges.

Erasmus+ will provide 14.7 billion EUR over seven years to strengthen education, training, youth and sport in Europe.

Who will benefit?

More than 4 million young people, students and adults will gain experience and skills by studying, training or volunteering abroad through Erasmus+. The programme will also support over 125,000 institutions and organisations to work with peers in other countries to innovate and modernise teaching practice and youth work. Together they will help ensure that young people and adults get the skills they need to succeed in today's world.

What will Erasmus+ support?

Erasmus+ will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad.
Erasmus+ will support transnational partnerships among education, training, and youth institutions and organisations to foster cooperation and bridge the worlds of education and work in order to tackle the skills gaps we are facing in Europe. It will also support national efforts to modernise education, training, and youth systems.
