Our guide has advice on capturing the perfect shot – from choosing the right equipment, camera settings to promoting the photos afterwards.

Brexit Update

We continue to work closely with the Department for Education on how a no-deal scenario would affect the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps programmes. For the latest information, please visit our Brexit update webpage.

In the event that the UK leaves the EU with no agreement in place, UK applicants with successful Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps bids will be able to claim against the HMG guarantee.

Beneficiary organisations are encouraged to register for the guarantee on the Cabinet Office portal. For guidance on how to register you can watch the UK Government's video tutorial.

For organisations in Northern Ireland, the Departments of Education, Communities and Economy will be running a session for Erasmus+ projects on preparing for the HMG guarantee in Belfast on Tuesday 22 October at 2.30pm. For more information and to RSVP, please contact by Friday 18 October, 5pm.
More information regarding preparing for a no-deal exit will be published on the Erasmus+ and ESC websites in due course.
