Go Abroad - Staff provides opportunities and funding for academic and professional services staff to undertake short teaching or training visits to Europe and beyond. 

Funding is provided in the form of flat-rate travel and subsistence grants, paid directly to the participant. 

Go Abroad - Staff opportunities are carried out with the support of the European Commission within the framework of the Erasmus+ Programme.
