Staff exchanges with University of Adelaide

Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility - University of Adelaide 2016-17

The Study Abroad and Exchange team are delighted to announce new International scholarships under the ERASMUS + International Credit Mobility scheme.

Scholarships will be available to support two staff exchanges with the University of Adelaide (Australia) in the fields of Science (including Life Sciences), Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

What is the Erasmus + International Credit Mobility scheme?

For over 25 years, the European Union has funded the Erasmus programme, which has enabled over three million European students to spend part of their studies at another partner higher education institution in another Erasmus programme country (EU; EEA; Turkey).

The Erasmus+ programme now opens up these opportunities, allowing for mobility from and to other parts of the world. This action also supports mobility of staff (teaching or training).
