Application forms for the 2018 Erasmus+ programme are out now! You can find them all in our Resources – Apply section.

See the 2018 deadlines here. Some forms are in web format, and others in pdf format.

How to open a web form:

To open web forms, you will need to have or create an EU Login account. When you have opened the form, read the web guidelines to understand the different sections. Please note that you should open the form in only one browser window or tab at a time. Opening several tabs or windows causes problems with the autosave function, and you risk losing your work.

How to open a pdf form:

To open pdf application forms, you have to:

  • install the most recent version of Adobe Reader on your computer
  • RIGHT-CLICK (that is, press the right-hand button on your mouse when clicking) and SAVE the form to your own device.

If you left-click on the form, you will see this error message and will not be able to access it:
