Eurydice is an information network supporting European cooperation in education by providing information on, and analysis of, European education systems and policies. It covers a wide range of themes on all phases of education, including higher education, in all 37 countries participating in the Erasmus+ programme.

The network operates through 41 national units which are coordinated by the European Commission’s Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency. The Eurydice unit for England, Wales and Northern Ireland is based at the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) and is funded by the UK Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and the European Commission. Scotland has a separate Eurydice unit, reflecting the fact that its education system has always been distinct from those of its UK partner countries. The Eurydice unit for Scotland is based at the Scottish Government and is funded by the European Commission.
