Erasmus is not only for students. Funding is available for staff to teach or train in Europe with an Erasmus+ Grant.
Any type of mobility, teaching or training, taken under Erasmus+ must be recognised by the University. For example, this could be through a performance management system (ADR).
Teaching mobility can be from two days to two months, excluding travel time. You must deliver at least eight hours of teaching and it must take place at a partner university.
Training mobility may be from two days to two months, excluding travel time. This grant is available for the following opportunities:
- job shadowing
- attendance at workshops
Conferences are not funded under Erasmus+ funding.
You'll be awarded funds for travel based on the distance that you'll be travelling. You must use the distance calculator in order to find out which band your travel will fall into. The distance to be calculated is one way. The grant covers the outward and return journey. Please see table below for the relevant bands.
|Travel distance (km)||Amount received per participant|
|Between 100 & 499km||€180|
|Between 500 and 1999km||€275|
Between 2000 and 2999km
|Between 3000 and 3999km||€530|
|Between 4000 and 7999km||€820|
|8000km and above||€1100|
Please view the Staff Daily Subsistence Rates for 2016/17. You are allowed to have one day of travel before and after your mobility begins if this does not fall on a teaching or training day.
