Lecturing visits

Lecturing visits by professors and teaching fellows at European partner universities are eligible for funding via the Erasmus+ programme. Travel and subsistence costs can be covered, but not teaching fees. Further details are available on the website for the National Agency for EU University Collaboration – DAAD

Advanced training and professional development opportunities for university staff

The Erasmus+ programme includes funding for non-academic staff. for short stays at European universities (partner universities  or other Erasmus participants) for professional development purposes. Typical activities include job shadowing or attending an “International Week” or staff training week. International Week activities are usually posted online, where they can easily be accessed, e.g. here. A selection of opportunities at our our partner universities are also posted in the university wiki.  You can also find information there about how to apply, sources of funding, etc.

These events are generally conducted in English and usually run for one to two weeks. Travel and subsistence costs are also covered in these cases, To qualify for a grant, you must be staying in an Erasmus+ country, i.e. in Europe or Turkey. Unfortunately, Switzerland is not covered. Visits to the United Kingdom remain eligible until May 2023. Further information is also available from the national Erasmus agency: DAAD.
