Staff mobility

Staff mobility financed by ERASMUS +

The International Relations Department (DRI) informs you about mobility possibilities for teaching staff and BIATSS financed by Erasmus +.

Mobilities can be either educational (Teaching Staff or TS), either training. They are an essential element of the internationalization of our university.

Teaching mobility funded by Erasmus+ is carried out for teaching purposes in a partner institution. It allows teachers and teacher-researchers to benefit from the opportunities offered by the Erasmus + program. It offers the opportunity to discover partner universities, strengthen links and follow the work of mobile students. 

The Erasmus + agreements that work best are those where the strong commitment of teachers in both institutions allows:

  • mutual knowledge of partner establishments, essential for advising students applying for Erasmus mobility,
  • establishing and maintaining relationships of trust, the basis of lasting cooperation,
  • the establishment of work and collaboration habits, very useful for the effective management of exchanges.

Who can leave?

You must be staff of the incumbent UR or under contract at the time of the mission. There are no nationality requirements.

How long can mobility last?

Mobility must include a minimum of 8 hours of teaching. It can last from 2 days to two months (excluding travel dates). The duration is calculated between the date of the outward journey and that of the return journey.

For so-called “combined” mobility (teaching + training), the minimum number of teaching hours is four per week.

Lessons must take place before September 30, 2024 except the United Kingdom (May 31, 2024).

How many staff can go on mobility?
