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".
- Mobility project for higher education students and staff to/from third countries not associated to the Programme
- Mobility projects for young people ‘youth exchanges’
- Youth participation activities
- Capacity-building in the field of youth
- Erasmus Mundus actions for universities
- Erasmus Mundus programmes and scholarships for students
- Jean Monnet actions in the field of higher education (see "Higher education institution actions")
- Capacity-building in the field of higher education
- Capacity-building in the field of VET
- Capacity-building in the field of sports
- Virtual exchanges in higher education and youth (more details available soon)
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.
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.
