Applications for Erasmus+ Staff Mobility Programme are now open.

The Erasmus+ Staff Mobility funding provides an opportunity for staff from all areas of the University to take part in a teaching or training placement across institutions in Europe. A mobility can offer you the opportunity to learn new skills or practices from peers in other institutions across the continent, meet staff from other universities to build your networks and experience a different culture and work environment.

The Erasmus+ programme is the European Union's funding programme for education, training, youth and sport. It governs student and staff exchange agreements in European countries. While the UK will no longer participate in the Erasmus+ scheme following the withdrawal from the EU, the Erasmus+ projects that were already in place before Brexit will continue until their expiry. The current project has been extended until 2023, which allows staff to make use of the funding until then.

There are two types of staff mobility: teaching and training. Visit our Erasmus+ Staff Mobility Programme page to find out more about what a teaching or training mobility involves.

The International Mobility Team will be holding an information session on campus on 16 November. This session will give you all the details about the benefits of a staff mobility, how to find a teaching or training opportunity and the funding you could get to travel abroad for a mobility activity! During the presentation, you will also hear from staff mobility funding recipients about their experiences and learn how to make the most of the programme! To register for the session, please click the link at the bottom of the page.

You can find the application form here.

Please consider your carbon footprint when applying and making your arrangements. As the staff mobility activities will take place in Europe, it may be possible for you to travel by train.
