Erasmus+ funding enables participants from the UK to go abroad study, work, volunteer, teach or train. Every year, Erasmus+ funds around 16,000 UK higher education students to benefit from a study or work placement abroad, 6,000 UK vocational education and training students to benefit from a work placement abroad, and 5,000 young people, often from disadvantaged backgrounds, to benefit from a volunteering experience abroad.

The funding is open to schools, further and higher education, adult education and youth organisations. Funding covers a range of activities, from vocational training placements to collaborative research, from joint projects between schools to training for youth workers, and is delivered across the UK by the British Council and Ecorys. Students and young people that take part in Erasmus+ face lower unemployment; are more likely to gain management positions, and have higher academic attainment.
