Which countries and higher education institutions can I visit in Europe?
You can visit higher education institutions, companies or organisations in any of the 30 other countries participating in Erasmus+. There is no requirement for a bilateral agreement with the partner university that you want to visit.
How does the selection process work?
The budget of the EU/UHR can vary from year to year. Precedence is given to applicants who have not previously been granted funds for staff training. Individual applicants and applications with a maximum of two participants are given precedence over group applications.
If funds are still available, it is also permissible to apply after the application deadline.
How will I know that I have been granted funding for staff training?
It is confirmed when you get back the signed Erasmus+ Grant Agreement from External Affairs stating that your application has been granted.
Is there anything that compensation does not cover?
Compensation is not to be used to cover course or conference fees.
How soon will my department receive the Erasmus funds?
The processing period is normally 2–3 weeks. However, processing and payments may take longer during holiday periods.
