EU programme for education, training, youth and sport

Opportunities from outside the EU

Organisations from countries outside the EU can take part in selected actions of the Erasmus+ programme. In the context of Erasmus+, these countries are referred to as “non-associated third countries (Partner Countries)”.

If your organisation is hosted in one of the partner countries, it may be eligible to take part in one of the actions listed below.

If you would like to apply for one of these actions, please see "How to apply".


Searching for a project partner

Please note that applications need to be led by an organisation established in a programme country. As an organisation from outside the EU, you will therefore first need to search for a potential partner for your project. One way to do this is to search for a partner in the EU’s Participant Register.

Individual applicants

If you’re looking to apply for Erasmus+ on your own, you will most probably need to do this through an organisation taking part in the programme. Examples are higher education institutions, youth organisations, associations and NGOs.

To find out how to apply, you can check with your organisation, read more on taking part, or reach out to a National Erasmus+ office.
