How do I find accommodation in London? What do I need to organise before I come to the UK? Are you looking for free advice and support to ultimately help you get the best out of Europe?

Eurodesk is the only dedicated network that has representatives in countries across Europe. Therefore, there is no better place for you to find advice and support for free!

Eurodesk – is the European-wide network, present in 33 countries, which promotes information on European opportunities for young people. These opportunities range from grants to scholarships with the intention of promoting the mobility and participation of individuals aged 13-30.

In the UK, Eurodesk works in partnership with the British Council and they provide information on the areas of; work, study, travel and volunteer across Europe. They have also previously provided support for the Youth in Action programmes and have worked closely with the Erasmus + programme.

A bit of history about Eurodesk

Before Eurodesk, European information was very difficult to find in Scotland. As a result six youth workers from Scotland decided to take part in a study visit to Brussels and Strasbourg with the objective of tracking down this information. The visit was a success and in 1990 it transformed into a regional project. However, it became evident that the demand for information was not exclusive to Scotland. Therefore, in 1995, the Commission requested the setting up of a European network of Eurodesk services throughout the EU Member States in order to consolidate this service across Europe.
