Funding is available for academic staff to undertake short teaching visits to one of our partner institutions.
The Erasmus experience in Berlin has been great! Thanks again for the opportunity.
Staff can apply for a funded place to teach abroad at any non-UK European university with which we have a valid Erasmus bilateral agreement.
If you would like to set up a new teaching agreement with a European institution, please submit a proposal form to the Go Abroad team. An agreement with the opposite institution can then be established and you can apply for funding for a teaching visit.
We also have agreements with institutions outside Europe through the International Credit Mobility programme, where teaching visits may be undertaken.
If you are interested in undertaking a teaching visit to any of these partners, please email email@example.com
I have just returned from a profitable (and enjoyable) teaching exchange trip to UAB… many thanks for all the help you have given me in my application for the teaching exchange.
Teaching visits normally last one week. Staff are required to deliver at least 8 hours of teaching per week.
Weekends are not usually considered for support unless they are working days. In such cases, the teaching programme should demonstrate that teaching activities will be undertaken for the reported period.
A subsistence allowance for up to 2 travel days may also be funded if requested at time of application.
Once dates for the teaching visit have been agreed with the partner institution, you should complete a Staff Teaching Mobility Agreement outlining your planned visit dates and teaching programme. This should be submitted at least 1 month prior to the planned visit.
An initial application for funding should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Funding is limited and the application process may be competitive.
Applications received before 30 September 2017 will receive priority - later applications will be considered subect to availability of funds.
All applications will be assessed on submission, and the applicant will receive an email to advise on the availability and amount of funding.
Successful applicants will be required to complete an Erasmus+ Staff Mobility Teaching Agreement and Grant Agreement prior to departure - these will be sent to the participant with confirmation of the funding allocated plus other important documents and guidance. The Teaching Agreement must be agreed formally by both the home and host institution and submitted at least 1 month prior to the planned visit.
The trip was productive and enjoyable and I hope we can repeat it in the near future.
The grant is divided into travel allowance and subsistence allowance. The travel allowance can be paid to the staff member in advance of the mobility. The subsistence allowance will be paid after the mobility activity is completed.
The following documentation must be returned to the Go Abroad office, confirming successful attendance and completion of the Teaching Programme:
