Last updated on 29 April 2020

Who is eligible?

To be eligible you must be:

  • registered at a university or college that holds an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education;
  • on a higher education course which leads to a recognised degree (or other recognised tertiary level qualification) up to and including the level of doctorate;
  • or enrolled in a short-term higher vocational education course, which includes foundation degree courses, or a part-time student (providing you study full-time during your period abroad).

How to apply?

Erasmus+ higher education funding is open to UK organisations involved in higher education. This includes degree awarding organisations as well as organisations offering courses leading to a degree.

To apply for Erasmus+ higher education funding or take part in a project, your institution must hold an Erasmus Charter For Higher Education (ECHE) or Mobility Consortium with Higher Education Consortium accreditation.

Students are not able to apply directly for Erasmus+ funding. Students should contact their university or college to find out about Erasmus+ opportunities. Each University will have an Erasmus+ coordinator that can let you know about which opportunities are available
