Erasmus Staff Teaching

Erasmus Teaching Staff Mobility

Erasmus Teaching Mobilities are available to all academic staff to avail of, regardless of the level of lecturing currently undertaken.

Academics interested in teaching must liaise with their Head of Department on staffing arrangements for TUS lectures, if engaging in a mobility during teaching weeks at TUS.

Where can I teach?

Erasmus supports teaching at other universities/colleges in the EU.

If you are interested in training at another university/college, TUS must hold an Erasmus Inter-institutional Agreement with the institution you wish to attend.

The availability of teaching opportunities is entirely dependent on the Erasmus partnership agreements of a staff member's academic department / subject area. Please contact erasmus@lit.ie for the most up-to-date list of partnerships in your teaching area.

Under the auspices of the Erasmus Programme, new partnerships are constantly being sought for our students and staff. Should you have a proposal for a potential Erasmus partner that TUS may engage in a reciprocal partnership with, please contact erasmus@lit.ie.

How long can I go for?

The teaching mobility must last a minimum of 2 days and can last a maximum of 2 months. At TUS, we encourage staff to avail of 5-day training opportunities.

A staff member must teach for a minimum of 8 hours per week on their mobility.

The teaching period can also include a mixture of teaching and training.

What funding is available?

If accepted to teach under Erasmus, you will receive one IBB payment containing two grants: (1) your travel grant and (2) your subsistence grant.

N.B. If you receive Erasmus support funding to engage in teaching, you are not permitted to claim receipts for costs associated with the training through your TUS Department. Funding must be sought either from Erasmus staff funds or via your TUS Department.
