Erasmus+ non EU

For staff mobility activities outside Europe Erasmus+ offers 2 possibilities:

Erasmus+ Staff Training

As a staff member you can make use of this funding possibility to follow a training programme outside Europe. The aim of an Erasmus+ Staff Training is to gain knowledge or new insights from colleagues or projects in another institute of higher education. These possibilities include joint research,  1-on-1 job shadowing, attending a Summer or Winter School or participating in an International Staff Training Week. It is unfortunately not possible to visit a conference with this grant.

Erasmus+ Staff Teaching

As a staff member you can make use of this funding possibility to teach at a partner university outside Europe. For teaching assignments you are required to teach a minimum of 8 hours per week.


The possibilities for this Erasmus+ grant are quite specific. You can participate in the staff training or teaching options at one of the following destinations:
