Go Abroad for Staff
Erasmus+ funding supports academic and professional services staff to teach or train abroad as part of their professional development.
Due to the current outbreak of COVID-19 and the uncertain duration of travel restrictions, all international travel is currently suspended until 31 July 2020. Applications for Erasmus funding via the Go Abroad Staff programme are currently also suspended.
We are continually monitoring changes in travel restrictions and immigration policies and will review this guidance as required for any travel, field trips or placements scheduled to take place after 31st July. Find the latest information on the University's COVID-19 webpages.
What is Go Abroad for Staff?
Go Abroad for Staff provides support and funding for academic and non-academic staff to go abroad on short teaching or training visits.
It's 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 really help your own personal and professional development. It can also benefit your wider team and the University through sharing of best practice, intercultural understanding and development of networks.
Applicants must be employees of the University of Edinburgh and must identify and secure their own teaching or training opportunity. Funding is made available within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme with the support of the European Commission.
