Funding for 2022/23 activities
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.
We have now committed all remaining Erasmus+ funding for Europe and will be unable to support any new applications for funding unless previous applicants withdraw.
We have very limited spaces available for non-European staff mobility. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be considered for any funding which becomes available.
Funding for Go Abroad for Staff is currently provided within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme with the support of the European Commission.
Erasmus+ funding is comprised of a travel grant and a subsistence grant. These grants may not cover all the costs of travel, accommodation, and subsistence so the amounts outlined below should be taken into consideration when planning your journey.
Actual expenditure will not be taken into consideration so participants are not required to submit an expense claim or to collate receipts of expenditure whilst abroad.
Grant rates vary according to destination country and duration of the visit, and are determined by the British Council.
For staff applying for funding for training activities, please note that there is no additional funding available to cover any course or participation fee charged by the host institution.
For further details about the funding available, see below:
The travel grant is a flat-rate grant calculated on the basis of the distance of travel from Edinburgh to the host destination (city), according to the European Commission's official Erasmus Travel Distance Calculator.
We will pay your travel grant on receipt of the following documents which will be sent to you electronically before your departure:
- completed and signed Staff Training/Teaching Mobility Agreement

Extra Erasmus+ funding is available for staff with additional needs where participation would not be possible without a greater level of financial support. This applies in cases where additional costs would exceed the normal grant allocations and funds cannot be obtained from other sources.
The grant covers approved actual costs. Please ensure you provide details in your application. We will contact you to discuss your situation in confidence as soon as possible if you wish to explore this possibility.
