Who can participate in the Erasmus+ Programme?
Individuals – students, apprentices, trainees, volunteers, young people, pupils, adult learners, teachers, professors, trainers, youth workers, professionals of organisations active in the fields of education, training and youth constitute the main target population of the Programme. However, the Programme reaches these individuals through organisations, institutions, bodies or groups that organise such activities. The conditions of access to the Programme therefore relate to these two actors: the “participants” (individuals participating in the Programme) and the “participating organisations” (in most cases, legally established organisations). For both participants and participating organisations, the conditions for participation depend on the country in which they are based.
As a general rule, participants in Erasmus+ projects must be living in a Programme Country. Some Actions in the field of higher education and youth are also open to participants from Partner Countries.
