Consultation on Erasmus+

The European Commission have published an online questionnaire to gather views on the purpose and impact of Erasmus+. This consultation is a key part of the mid-term evaluation to help shape how the programme might look after 2020. We encourage organisations and individuals to take this opportunity to share experiences and opinions. The deadline for contributions is 31 May.

Bath College students and Andrea Sapundjija - International Women's Day

Spotlight on our blog

This month saw International Women’s Day 2017 trending with the #BeBoldForChange campaign. Our most recent blog post marked the day by looking at five ways Erasmus+ strives to challenge bias and inequality, celebrate women's achievements, and champion women's education. This included reflecting on the origins of the Erasmus+ programme and how the predecessor programmes contributed to supporting women’s education. We also took the opportunity to celebrate the successes of Andrea Sapundjija who has cerebral palsy and studied abroad in Spain.
