Erasmus+

Erasmus+ is a European Union programme for the areas of education, training, youth and sport. The Erasmus+ funding for this call for applications from the 2021 project of the Erasmus+ KA131 2021–2027 programme. Action 1 of this programme includes mobility for students and staff from higher education institutions within the  27 member states of the European Union, the countries of the European Economic Area (Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway), the Republic of North Macedonia, Serbia and Turkey. The United Kingdom is a participant in the Erasmus+ 2021–2027 programme as an associate country (associate countries are those that do not fully participate in Erasmus+ but can do so for certain parts of the programme), and so participants from the UK are not eligible to participate or receive funding.
