Record levels of Erasmus+ funding for UK in 2018

More Erasmus+ funding has already been allocated to UK-based organisations in 2018 than in any previous year of the programme – and there is still one more round of Youth applications to go.

New figures, published this week by the UK National Agency, show that €168 million has been awarded to 932 projects so far this year, bringing the overall total handed out to almost €677m since the current initiative started in 2014.

Almost 4,800 projects have now been funded across the schools, higher education, adult education, vocational education and training and youth sectors with the latest statistics also revealing that, between 2014 and 2017, Erasmus+ funded more than 128,000 opportunities for overseas placements for volunteers, learners and educators, amounting to more than 10.7 million days abroad.
