Erasmus+ offers an opportunity for academic staff to teach at a partner institution in either one of the 33 programme countries or in on of the programme’s associated partner countries. These short visits allow staff to contribute to, and learn from, best practice, find out first-hand the workings of another European education system and contribute to teaching a course with European colleagues. Erasmus+ Teaching Mobility is intended to allow for the further development of links between European higher education institutions and to encourage further mobility of staff and students.

Are you eligible?

Staff seeking to take part in a mobility for teachingmust be employed in a higher education institution, which is currently in receipt of an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE), or a public or private organisation employed in the labour market or in the fields of education, training and youth. Doctoral candidates employed by higher education institutions are included in this category. The mobility can last anywhere from 2 days to 2 months (excluding travel time). In all cases, a teaching activity has to comprise a minimum of 8 hours teaching per week (or any shorter period of stay).

Staff which qualify and are wishing to take part in an Erasmus should contact the international/placement officer at their university to see what programs and institutions are available.
