Erasmus+ funding now available

Erasmus+ Staff Mobility funding is now available for 2015-16, with opportunities across Europe for training for all staff and teaching in partner universities for academic staff.

32 Erasmus Staff mobility applications were approved in 2014-15 with staff visiting 20 universities across Europe.

Celine Reynaud, International Experiences Manager who went on a staff training week to Radbound University in the Netherlands says: “Taking part in the staff training at Radboud University, Nijmegen was a great opportunity to meet colleagues involved in the same area of work from all over Europe and beyond. The topic of the training week was directly linked with my PDR objectives and provided a forum to exchange best practice, experience and ideas. Radboud is one of our preferred European partners for students exchange and it was great to put a face to a name and get to know their staff better during my time there.”

In addition to the direct professional and personal development of such international mobility, benefits reported by 2014-15 participants also included:

  • Strengthening of partner relations in order to better promote the exchange opportunity to students
  • Meeting with current University of Glasgow students at the partner university on Erasmus exchange, building relations for future academic collaboration and on-going joint research projects
  • Gaining new ideas for research and the course syllabus as a result of discussions with colleagues at partner universities
  • Developing new teaching material for future courses at Glasgow
  • Promoting the University of Glasgow to potential European postgraduate students

Teaching and non-teaching staff are eligible to apply for Erasmus training funding which includes short secondment, training courses and job shadows.
