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 currently employed by the University of Edinburgh and must identify and secure their own teaching or training opportunity.
Funding for Go Abroad Staff programmes is provided within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme with the support of the European Commission. All current and planned Go Abroad Staff activities will still be eligible for Erasmus+ funding until 2023.
