Funds now available to support Global Staff Mobility: Erasmus+

Global staff mobility, including training and teaching, leads to professional development and networking and brings great value to BU and our students, whilst offering invaluable international experience.

We are pleased to announce that staff, both academic and professional support, can now apply for funds to support these activities through Erasmus+.

Erasmus+ funds are a great way to build networks and gain experience.

Erasmus+ staff mobility funds can be used to support travel, accommodation and subsistence of academic and professional support staff attending training at an organisation or institution in Europe. It can also be used for academic staff wishing to teach at a European university.

To be eligible for teaching (not training) mobilities, BU needs to have an agreement with the proposed University – you can check which organisations we have inter-institutional agreements with in the globalBU database.

The call for applications is now open – with a closing deadline of 9am Monday 10th February 2020.

You can find all the necessary application forms, FAQs and guidance at Global Staff Mobility
