What is Go Abroad for Staff?
Go Abroad for Staff provides support and funding for academic and non-academic staff to undertake short teaching or training visits to Europe and beyond. The programme is open to all staff employed by the University of Edinburgh.
A Go Abroad for Staff activity is a great way to pick up new ideas and practices, develop skills in your field, and to build and develop international relationships. The knowledge and experience gained can benefit the individual participant professionally and personally, but can also benefit their wider team and the University through sharing of best practice, intercultural understanding and development of networks.
Applicants need to identify and secure a teaching or training opportunity. Funding is made available to participants with the support of the European Commission within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme.
