Staff Mobility

Erasmus Staff Mobility allows the staff responsible for teaching at higher education institutions with an Erasmus Declaration to teach at a higher education institution with an Erasmus Declaration in another European country for a maximum of 6 weeks, provided that they give at least 5 hours of lectures within 1 academic year or any staff working in higher education institutions with an Erasmus Declaration to study in higher education institutions or businesses with an Erasmus Declaration.

Erasmus Staff Mobility is divided into two sub-activities:

  • Training Mobility
  • Teaching Mobility

Erasmus Staff Mobility allows the staff responsible for teaching at higher education institutions with an Erasmus Declaration in Turkey to teach at a higher education institution with an Erasmus Declaration in another European country.

The Objectives of the Teaching Mobility

Giving students who cannot participate in the mobility program the opportunity to benefit from the knowledge and experience of the academic staff of higher education institutions in different European countries

Encouraging the exchange of speciality and experience in pedagogical methods
Encouraging higher education institutions to expand and enrich the variety and content of the courses they offer

Requirements for the Teaching Mobility

  • Being at least part-time staff in a higher education institution holding an Erasmus Declaration,
  • Having an agreement between universities,
  • Having a teaching program accepted by both the home and host higher education institutions (The teaching program should be signed by the parties and should at least include the overall aims/objectives, content and expected results of the program to be carried out)

Note: It is necessary to give at least 5 hours of lectures in the host higher education institution in order to receive a grant after the teaching mobility.

Erasmus Training Mobility allows the staff working in higher education institutions with an Erasmus Declaration in Turkey to get an education.

Staff Training Mobility includes two types of mobility:

Mobility of the staff who go from a higher education institution to a business institution

The purpose of this mobility is to allow the participants to learn and acquire practical skills through the transfer of knowledge and experience. The main activities may include seminars, workshops, courses and conferences, practical training processes, short-term employment etc.

Mobility of the staff who go from a higher education institution to another higher education institution

The purpose of this mobility is to allow the participants to learn the experience and implementation of a different institution and to develop the skills necessary for their current job. The main activities may include an on-the-job training program, work visits, short-term employment etc.

Mobility should be carried out within the project period determined every year. The applicant should contact the host institution and request an invitation letter.

SPECIAL NEEDS SUPPORT

All higher education institutions undertake to provide equal access and opportunities to participants from all circles by signing the Higher Education Erasmus University Declaration. Therefore, students and staff with physical, mental or health-related conditions may benefit from all support services provided by the host institution to their local students and staff.

F.A.Q

Only EU member states and non-EU program countries (Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Macedonia and Turkey) are included in the mobility activities in the first year of the program. The number of program countries is expected to increase in the upcoming years.

Students who are at the higher education level and plan to study for a master’s degree are offered for the Joint Master Degrees and Erasmus+ Degree Loans with the Erasmus+ period.

In order to attend the student mobility program, you need to be a student. On the other hand, a change made in the new semester allows students who graduated recently to attend internship mobility program. This allows students who have applied to the internship program while they are still students to attend internship mobility within one year after their graduation for up to 12 months. If the students want to attend the internship activity after graduation, they should apply to the higher education institution while they are still a student. Applications after graduation are not accepted.

Erasmus Office or the higher education institutes are not responsible for the accommodation services. However, the EU offices in the host country will inform you about the accommodation services.

Visa procedures are the responsibility of the candidates. It is very important to complete the documents requested by the consulate/embassy of the host country during the visa application process. If the students wish, the home institution will deliver a paper which states the amount of the grant of the mobility program in order to ease the visa procedures.

You can only go to the countries/institutions we have an aggrement with.

Students have the opportunity to benefit from Erasmus student mobility activities for 12 months with or without grant at each level of education (bachelor, master, and PhD). However, if you have benefited from another Lifelong Learning Program or Erasmus+ mobility scheme while pursuing the same level of academic degree, the months will be reduced from 12 months and your grant amount will be calculated according to this procedure. The higher education institution will be able to give priority to students who have not previously benefited from an Erasmus+ Mobility or Lifelong Learning Program. Thus, many students can benefit from these programs. If you have participated previously in any Erasmus+ Mobility (Study or Traineeship) in the same level of education, 10 points reduction will be applied to your Erasmus+ Score.

The extension of the mobility program will be possible in case of the approval of the student’s request by the higher education institute. If there is enough funding to support the student for one more semester, the student can extend the mobility program with a grant. If there isn’t enough funding to support the student, the student can extend the mobility program without a grant, provided that all the program rules are applied. Otherwise, extension of the mobility program will only be possible if the students continue their education in the same higher education institution as the first semester. If the student/staff wants to attend mobility program for the second time in a different country, a new application and selection process is required.
