Visiting Academic Scholars

The TourDC Consortium will engage at least four guest lecturers/scholars, for a minimum of eight weeks, per student intake. Guest lecturers' mobility is considered eligible between the partners of the TourDC Consortium (including to/from associated partners) and from any organisations outside the consortium, provided it is clearly linked to the TourDC programme. Any guest lecturers/scholars paid by other EU funds may not be considered.

Guest lecturers/scholars should be able to:

  • demonstrate outstanding academic and/or professional experience. 
  • bring concrete added value to the EMJMD intake in terms of student-centred teaching/lecturing, research activities, Master thesis support, academic/professional networking, etc.
  • contribute, after their visit activities, to the promotion and dissemination of the Erasmus Mundus Programme in general, and the TourDC in particular, in their university and country of origin. Guest lecturers/scholars will be asked to write a short report/testimonial for use on the consortium website and for inclusion in reports to the EACEA.

Priority will be given to applicants who wish to work on a joint research funding application/project or joint publication in collaboration with academic(s) at the proposed TourDC host university.

Duration and Grant

Guest lecturers/scholars will normally spend 1-2 weeks at one of the consortium's partner universities. 

The remuneration for visiting scholars will be determined by the consortium for each edition. The award will comprise travel (economy) and accommodation organised by the lead university plus a subsistence allowance of €250 per week.
