Erasmus+ at UCL

Following the UK's departure from the Erasmus programme, UCL is in a period of transition. Students are still able to pursue study abroad placements in Europe, however from 23-24 these will not be eligible for Erasmus+ funding.


About the Erasmus+ Programme 

Erasmus+ aims to modernise education, training and youth work across Europe. It is open to education, training, youth and sport organisations across all sectors of lifelong learning, including school education, further and higher education, adult education and the youth sector. It offers exciting opportunities for UK participants to study, work, volunteer, teach and train abroad in Europe.

We, the UCL Study Abroad Team, apply for Erasmus+ funding, collate and record paperwork, process payments and report to our National Agency (the British Council) on behalf of UCL.

UCL Erasmus+ Mobility Projects

UCL is proud to have been granted in December 2013, participation rights within the Erasmus+ programme. This charter sets out a number of principles which participating organisations agree to uphold in operating the programme. You can learn more about the way UCL is implementing Erasmus+ by reading the Erasmus+ Charter for Higher Education and UCL's Erasmus+ Policy Statement.
