Erasmus+ Blended Intensive Programmes (BIP)

For you who teaches students and PhDs

As a teacher at Lund University, you can give courses in the form of blended intensive programmes (BIPs), part of the Erasmus+ programme. During a BIP, virtual exchange is combined with a short physical mobility. You can also teach at a BIP coordinated by another university.

BIPs are short courses that use innovative ways of learning, teaching and collaborating, both online and on-site. During the virtual part, students and teachers come together online to work together on specific tasks integrated in the BIP. Online teaching can take place before, during and after the physical mobility.

A university, together with at least two other higher education institutions from two other EU/EEA countries, can organise courses for groups of students in all subject areas and at all levels (Bachelor, Master’s and PhD).

Read more about eligible countries on the European Commission website

Teachers at Lund University can either be coordinators or part of a BIP as a partner. A grant of 6 000 – 8 000 Euro is paid to the department at the coordinating higher education institution.


  • At least three universities from at least three different countries within the EU/EEA (programme country) form a partnership.
  • The course must award at least 3 ECTS.
  • The BIP can be a part/element in a course or a specific course.
  • The physical mobility must be between 5 and 30 days.
  • The mandatory virtual part can take place before, during and after the mobility (or a combination of these).
  • At least 15 students/PhDs must participate in the physical mobility. Teaching teachers and students/PhDs from the host institution are not counted.
  • Students/PhDs and teachers from universities outside the BIP partnership can participate.
  • Mobile participants (students/PhDs and teachers) receive an Erasmus+ scholarship from their home university. An Erasmus agreement between the universities must be in place.
  • The coordinating institution receives funds (between 6 000 – 8 000 Euro) to organise the course.

If you as a teacher are interested in coordinating a BIP, you can apply for Erasmus+ funds for planning and organisation costs (6 000–8 000 Euro).

Link to application – Apply as coordinator by 15 June

An approval from the pro/vice dean or the faculty's education board must also be uploaded.

  • The course must contain a campus-based part (at least five days in Sweden) and a virtual part.
  • The course must award at least 3 ECTS and can be at Bachelor, Master’s or PhD level.
  • The BIP can be a part/element in a course or a specific course.
  • The course must be completed by 31 July 2024 at the latest.
  • An inter-institutional exchange agreement is required with all partners who send students/PhDs /teachers to the course in Lund.
  • It is recommended to also invite students/PhDs from additional partner universities.
  • Courses that are planned and implemented together with two or more EUGLOH universities are given priority. Read more on EUGLOH on
  • Remember to allow enough time for the administrative procedures if a new course is to be set up. Make early contact with the responsible faculty office.
  • NOTE: If fewer than 15 students/PhDs participate in the physical mobility, the course is not eligible for financial support (LU's participants are not counted!)

When another university coordinates a BIP, you can participate as a partner. Students/PhDs and teachers from Lund University who participate in the BIP apply for an Erasmus+ mobility grant for the physical mobility.
