19 December 2011

This year, over EUR35,000 will be made available to UCL employees – both academic and administrative – wishing to visit a European higher education institution to further their understanding of teaching and learning.

Erasmus Mobility Funding offers a great opportunity for UCL staff to teach or work at another higher education institution in one of the 33 participating countries around Europe.

During your trip, you can gain a first-hand understanding of the workings of another European educational system, discover new teaching methods and practices, and return to the UK with a host of new ideas to benefit your work at UCL. An Erasmus trip also offers a great opportunity to expand your network and enhance your language skills.

Since 2009, 31 UCL staff have benefited from Erasmus Staff Mobility Training, with placements to Sweden, Hungary, Italy, Belgium, Poland, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark and Austria. Projects have been undertaken in areas as diverse as digital archiving and curation, physics and astronomy, assessment, life-long learning, European research funding, linguistics, and cognitive science.

This year, EUR35,980 is available and the process is open to all UCL staff. To apply, you need to fill out a form and submit a workplan, details of which can be found on the CALT website.

Workshops explaining the Erasmus scheme and application process are being held on the following dates:

  • 6th January 2012, 10am-11.30am, Rockefeller 337 David Sacks
  • 13th January 2012, 10am-11.30am, Rockefeller 337 David Sacks
