Erasmus+

Erasmus+ is the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. It provides opportunities for Europeans to study, train, and gain experience abroad.

The programme doesn’t have opportunities for students only. It offers projects for a wide variety of individuals and organisations.

Participating in the Erasmus+ programme is an amazing way to discover new cultures, learn new skills, meet people from different cultural backgrounds and experience the best moments of your life (truly!).

Is this all for me?

If you are wondering whether Erasmus+ and ESC are for you, the most probable answer is: YES!

Erasmus+ and ESC offer an enormous variety of local and international opportunities both for individuals and organisations.

If you are a young person aged 18-30 years old you can participate in Youth Exchanges or join European Solidarity Corps (creating a Solidarity Project or going as a volunteer abroad). No need for a particular level of education, special competences or skills – what counts is your motivation!

If you work with youth as an educator, teacher, youth leader or you are seeking to work in this sector in the future, you can join Training Courses. Your motivation is still the most important, but for some projects we look for a specific participant profile – read more in project descriptions.
