Erasmus+ for faculty and staff

With the Erasmus+ program, the European Union not only promotes the international academic mobility of students but also that of university faculty and staff. There is a distinction between teaching staff mobility at European partner universities, for which only teaching faculty are eligible, and continuing education and training measures, which can be taken up by all university employees, including teaching faculty.

Financial support for these mobilities is provided from the university's Erasmus budget.

Teaching staff mobility

Who can apply?

This funding line is aimed at professors and lecturers with a contractual relationship to the university, research assistants, and doctoral students involved in teaching. 

What is funded?

Funding is provided for guest lectureships at European partner universities of HKA. Through their visits, guest lecturers are to strengthen the European dimension of the host university, complement its teaching, and impart their expertise to students who do not want to or cannot study abroad. If possible, this should include developing joint study programs of the partner universities as well as the exchange of teaching content and methods.

The sponsored persons receive …

  • financial grants for their stay abroad
  • if applicable, special grants for persons with disabilities

Duration of the grant

Teaching stays last between at least 2 days for program countries or 5 days for partner countries and 60 days (excluding travel time). The required teaching load per stay is eight hours for the first week of stay or for a short stay.
For each additional day of stay beyond one week (seven days), the minimum number of hours is calculated on a pro-rata basis.
If teaching and continuing education are combined the teaching load is reduced to 4 hours per week. 

Continuing education and training

Who can apply?

The program is open to all employees of the university.

What is funded?

Funding is available for job shadowing, study visits, participation in curricula development (lecturers), participation in workshops and seminars, participation in language courses, etc., at European partner universities of HKA. In many cases, eligible activities are offered in the form of “International Staff Weeks".

The sponsored persons receive …

  • financial grants for their stay abroad
  • support for the preparation and implementation of the stay abroad (cultural, linguistic, organizational)
  • if applicable, special grants for persons with disabilities


Duration of the grant

Stays abroad last between at least 2 days for program countries or 5 days for partner countries and 60 days (excluding travel time).

Whether you are interested in a guest lectureship or in a continuing education or training measure, the International Office of HKA will be happy to advise you on the possibilities of funding through the Erasmus+ program. Under certain circumstances, it may also be possible to carry out a guest lectureship or a continuing education program at a university with which there is currently no Erasmus agreement. Your contact persons at the International Office are Dr. Joachim Lembach for general questions and for your support in establishing contacts with possible host universities, and Hannes Schwarz for advice on the details of funding and administrative matters.
