Study and Work Away Service

Staff mobility

Due to the UK's departure from the EU, the 2022/23 academic year will be the final year in which we can offer Erasmus+ funding to support Go Abroad for Staff opportunities.

Funding for staff mobility

We have now committed all remaining Erasmus+ funding and are unable to support any new applications  at this time.

The UK's replacement international programme, the Turing Scheme, unfortunately does not currently offer any funding to support staff mobility.  We hope to source alternative funding to support future staff mobility opportunities and will provide information on these pages as and when opportunities become available.

We celebrated Europe Day 2023 by marking the impact of over 35 years of our involvement in the Erasmus+ programme. This is highlighted through stories from past student and staff participants, as we recognise the ongoing opportunities, activities and partnerships for which it has been the foundation.
