The ERASMUS programme is not just for students!!!
ERASMUS offers a great opportunity for both academic and administrative staff to teach, work or gain training in another institution / organisation in one of the 31 other participating European countries, and can provide a substantial financial contribution to cover the associated costs of travel and subsistence incurred.
The ERASMUS Staff mobility programme has two streams:
All members of staff at the University of Reading are eligible to participate on the programme - academic, administrative, technical or manual. Previous strictures limiting participation to only EU nationals have been removed therefore it is avialable to all nationalities. The only requirement is that you work for the University of Reading and we get approval for your participation.
As part of the Internationalisation of the University of Reading staff mobility at all levels is encouraged. Therefore colleagues can use the ERASMUS programme as a method of professional development by bolstering your skills, enhancing your knowledge, increasing your international networks and potentially even enhancing your language skills at the same time.
ERASMUS can also provide funding for schools / departments to carry out Preparatory Visits to proposed European partner institutions in order to establish links and to investigate student mobility, therefore potentially helping you broaden your European contacts and collaboration.
NB: Please note that for Staff mobility the ERASMUS programme, in its current guide, is to end at the end no later than 31 July 2014. Any arrangement for post-August 2014 need to be delayed until confirmation of the details of the new programme.
