The opportunity is available to all staff on a University of Edinburgh contract, whether from academic or professional services.

Opportunities exist across Europe as well as at selected partners outside of Europe. 

Training activities could include:

  • Improving understanding of an aspect of your role at a workshop or staff training event
  • Getting a new perspective and sharing knowledge by job shadowing counterparts at another institution
  • Personal and professional development on an intercultural, international staff week – find staff training weeks in Europe here:
