Staff opportunities

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
  • observation
  • attendance at workshops
  • courses
These activities can be for transfer of knowledge and good practice, to learn from shared experience, acquire practical skills or discover new ideas for teaching and learning.

Conferences are not funded under Erasmus+ funding.
