Erasmus+ funding for staff mobility
Gaining experience abroad, including teaching and training, leads to professional development and networking. Global staff mobility brings great value to BU and our students, whilst offering invaluable international experience.
We are pleased to announce that all staff – both academic and professional services – can now apply for funds to support these activities through Erasmus+.
Erasmus+ funds can be used to support travel, accommodation and subsistence of staff attending training at an organisation or institution in Europe. They can also be used for academic staff wishing to teach at a European university.
To be eligible for teaching (not training) opportunities, BU needs to have an agreement with the proposed university – you can check which organisations we have inter-institutional agreements with at globalBU.
The call for applications is now open – with a closing deadline of 9am on Monday 11 February 2019.
You can find all the necessary application forms, FAQs and guidance at Global Staff Mobility.
