Erasmus+ Teaching and Staff Mobility

Note: The call for applications will end on May 31, 2018. 

Teaching mobility

Teaching staff can receive funding for teaching, lecturing, seminars, supervision and examination at a partner university in Europe. The funding includes an amount based on the length of stay abroad, and a travel grant based on the distance between the home and host universities, in accordance with the EU Commission distance calculator.

The mobility requires the teaching staff member to deliver  a minimum of eight hours of teaching per week, over at least two days per week or part of a week. The maximum amount of time is generally 2–3 weeks.

The application is due at least a month prior to the start of the mobility period. 

Staff mobility

All full-time employees at AUB can receive funding for job shadowing, such as participating in the daily work at a partner university, business or organisation.  The funding includes an amount based on the length of the stay abroad, and a travel grant. The duration is usually 5 days, however, depending on the agreement with our partner university, the duration of the stay may vary.

Erasmus+ University Partners for Teaching and Staff  Mobility




"I would definitely recommend visiting Lund University; Swedish people are very nice and friendly, Lund is beautiful. It was very inspiring to meet with different staff members and professors at Lund University, and to learn more about the projects that they are involved in." Diane Audi, 2017

"I would like to thank three entities: AUB, Erasmus and Koc University, for the great opportunity to take part in a one-week Staff Mobility Program at KOC's Social Impact Forum.  I would definitely recommend the Erasmus Staff Mobility Program to all those who are open to learning new skills, languages and experiencing a new professional setting at another university. Koc University is an excellent higher education institution which is also distinctively located inside a forest in Sariyer (Istanbul). The experience over there is beyond enriching on every level (professional, personal, and certainly cultural). " Nadine Ghalayini, 2017​​
