Erasmus+ Staff Teaching Exchanges

Limited Erasmus+ funding is available for outgoing staff until December 2022. If you are a member of the academic teaching staff employed by the University of Oxford you may be eligible for funding to teach at another institution that participates in Erasmus+.


Financial benefits


Teaching must take place in a Higher Education Institution which holds an Erasmus+ University Charter and must be completed by 31 May 2023. Priority is given to teachers going abroad for the first time. There is an obligation to deliver at least eight hours of teaching.

A minimum duration of two working days is strongly recommended and the maximum duration is two months (subject to available funding).

A contribution towards travel costs; travel grants are paid according to distance travelled (from the location of the sending organisation to that of the receiving organisation).

A contribution towards subsistence costs, which are calculated on a flat rate basis, depending on the country visited.

Supplementary allowances may also be available for staff with special needs.

All Erasmus+ funding is paid prior to the completion of the staff mobility period.

An Institutional Agreement must be in place by the summer before the academic year in which the staff teaching mobility is due to take place.

Institutional Agreements can only be signed by the University of Oxford’s Erasmus+ Coordinator.

Specific grant documentation must be completed before the Erasmus+ funding is released. 

If the Institutional Agreement involves an incoming member of staff, the receiving department/faculty would be responsible for organising their teaching arrangements. 

Visiting academic staff would be responsible for their own accommodation and would claim Erasmus+ funding from their home institution. 

Please note that after December 2022 it will no longer be possible to apply for Staff Mobility through the Erasmus+ programme and you should contact the study abroad team at for further guidance.
