> Erasmus+ non EU

These grants are predominantly awarded to support specific (research) projects between Radboud university and several partner institutions. Contact erasmus@ru.nl for an up-to-date overview and possibilities.

For staff mobility activities outside Europe the Erasmus+ non EU programme offers 2 possibilities:

Erasmus+ Staff Training

As a member of staf 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 lecturer you might be eligible for an Erasmus+ Staff Teaching grant if teaching takes place at an institution with which your relevant faculty has a bilateral Erasmus+ agreement.


For both Erasmus+ grants a stay abroad of at least 5 and maximum 30 days applies. Furthermore for staff teaching a minimum of 8 teaching hours per week is required. This minimum also applies to stays of less than 1 week.

grant amounts
The Erasmus + grants consist of a lump sum for travel costs and a fixed daily allowance. These amounts will be communicated to you when you apply. The International Mobility team will pay the grant to the indicated cost place number. You need to declare your costs in the usual manner referring to this cost place number. Any difference between expenses and the grant amount will be charged to the faculty.

deadlines and application forms

Applications must be submitted at least 4 weeks before the start of your stay abroad. Please send a completed and signed form to erasmus@ru.nl:

In order to further develop and reinforce the international character of our university, the Executive Board has reserved additional funds. These so-called Radboud Internationalisation grants include a.o. a number of international travel grants which intend to encourage, outside Europe:

  • Research visits and other international mobility for PhD candidates (€700 per visit outside Europe)
  • Teaching visits at partner universities (€1,000 per visit)

You can find more information about these international travel grants and the other Radboud Internationalisation Grants on Radboudnet.
