There are 2 types of countries where Erasmus+ is active:

    Programme countries) and
  2. Third countries not associated to the Programme (previously called Partner countries).

 

See the full list of eligible countries.

All Erasmus+ projects are submitted online. No paper, no postage costs, no waiting in the post office line on the last day of the deadline. The application processes for Erasmus+ vary depending on which strand of funding you are applying for and whether the funding opportunity is managed by the European Education and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) or National Agencies.  If you apply from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo* or Montenegro, you can apply only to the EACEA. If you apply from Serbia or North Macedonia, you can apply to both the EACEA and your National Agency. More information on the application process, including templates and model application forms, can be found in the How to apply section of the European Commission web page.
