FAQ about continuing professional development
What countries and higher education institutions can I go to?
You can go to higher education institutions in any of the 30 other countries participating in Erasmus+. A bilateral agreement with the partner university is not required. You may also visit companies and organisations, however, no EU institutions, organisations that manage EU programmes, or Swedish diplomatic representations (embassies and consulates).
What will I receive as reimbursement?
The financial contribution from the Erasmus programme is not intended to cover all costs of your trip. It cannot be used to cover course or conference fees. It is important that you come to an agreement with the head of your department/office on whether a subsistence allowance shall be granted, and how to cover those costs of the exchange that may exceed the scholarship amount.
How will payment be made?
Your department/office will receive payment upon receipt of an expense report. Payment is made according to the currency exchange rate at the time Lund University receives the funds. Report your expenses as usual in Primula res. Submit your Certificate of Attendance and Mobility Costs, no later than one month after your return home.
How is the selection made?
The principle ’first come, first served’ applies. Applicants who have not been granted continuing professional development funding before will be given priority. Individual applicants and applications with a maximum of two participants are given priority over groups.
How soon will I be notified?
The processing time is generally two to three weeks. During holiday periods the processing time may be longer and payments may also be delayed.
