STINT Teaching Sabbatical

Teaching abroad

STINT Teaching Sabbatical is a programme that offers researchers and teachers to spend an autumn term at one of STINT's twelve partner campuses in Botswana, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and the US.

The programme aims to develop both individuals and institutions. By giving researchers and teachers passionate about teaching issues international experiences based on the teaching role, rather than in the research role, STINT wants to contribute to higher education being renewed and new networks being created.
