Standard Eligibility Conditions; Erasmus+ is open to many individuals and organisations, although eligibility varies from one action to another and from one country to another. Individuals can take part in many of the opportunities funded by Erasmus+, although most will have to do so through an organisation taking part in the programme. The eligibility of individuals and organisations depends on the country in which they are based. Eligible countries are divided into two groups, Programme countries and Partners countries. Although Programme countries are eligible for all actions of Erasmus+, Partner countries can only take part in some, and are subject to specific conditions.

The Erasmus+ programme differentiates between programme and partner countries, as regards possible modalities of participation of their institutions. Programme countries are European Union countries, Macedonia, Island, Lichtenstein, Norway and Turkey. Republic of Serbia has become a full member of the Erasmus + programme, i.e. a programme country from 2019 call.  Partner countries can be those countries neighbouring the EU, as well as all the other countries in the world.
