Under the Withdrawal Agreement negotiated with the EU, the UK will continue to participate fully in the current (2014-20) Erasmus+ programme.

This means that beneficiaries can continue to maintain relationships with international partners and that the projects that were successfully bid for during the current programmes will continue to receive EU funding for the full duration of the project. This includes projects where funding runs beyond 2020 and the end of the transition period.

We continue to work closely with the sector and the UK National Agency, which is responsible for the management and delivery of the programme across the UK, to support the UK’s participation under the current programme.
