Dozenten und Mitarbeitermobilität

Lecturer and staff mobility

The International Office offers scholars and staff members the opportunity to go abroad by way of cooperation agreements with foreign institutions. The Erasmus+ programme may provide financial support for some of the exchanges.

Lecturer mobility - Erasmus STAHide

The programme "Dozentenmobilität (STA)" enables scholars to give guest lecture at one of the Erasmus partner universities of the University of Bayreuth. Guest lecturers should strengthen the European dimension of the host university through their stay, complement its range of courses, and impart their specialist knowledge in the spirit of internationalisation on campus to students who will not or cannot study abroad. Courses can take the form of seminars, lectures, lectures, tutorials etc.  Where possible, the development of joint study programmes at partner universities should play a role, as should the exchange of teaching content and methods.

Here you can find an Erasmus+ video explaining the mobility of lecturers.

Who is eligible for funding?

  • Professors and instructors in a contractual relationship with the university
  • Instructors who are not paid
  • Adjunct teaching staff
  • Professors emiriti, retired instructors
  • Research associates

Please note: The applicant's citizenship does not play a role, as long as he or she is employed by the University of Bayreuth. Stays in countries in which the sponsored person has his or her main residence cannot be financed.

Staff from foreign companies and organisations may be invited to the University of Bayreuth for teaching purposes  If you would like to invite colleagues from partner universities to Bayreuth, they must apply for ERASMUS+ funding at their home university.

What are the basic conditions?

  • Duration: Duration: 2 days - 2 months (not including travel time).
  • Lesson workload: At least eight hours per week.
  • If teaching activities are combined with continuing education and training activities, the teaching load is reduced to four hours per week.

A combination of teaching and research activities is possible if the minimum teaching load is completed.

Staff Mobility (STT) / Mobility for the purposes of continuing education and training (STT)Hide

The mobility programme for continuing education and training purposes promotes the professional development of university instructors and other university staff via continuing education measures abroad (except for research projects with a direct link to research and conferences) and through internships at a partner university or at corresponding institutions abroad.

Here you can find an Erasmus+ video explaining the staff mobility.

Who is eligible for funding?

University staff and trainees from all areas (e.g. general and technical administration, libraries, departments, finance, international offices, public relations, student advising, technology transfer, continuing education)

Please note: The applicant's citizenship does not play a role, as long as he or she is employed by the University of Bayreuth. Stays in countries in which the sponsored person has his or her main residence cannot be financed. You can only be awarded funding once in a given academic year.

What are the basic conditions?

It must be one of the following: training visits at universities, educational institutions, or companies in other European countries (all EU member states, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Turkey). This can be either a visit of an individual to a partner university (with an individual work plan) or participation in group training events at partner universities (e.g. International Staff Week).

  • Duration: 2 - 8 weeks.
  • Objective of the programme: Insight into the same or similar fields of work at universities and companies in other European countries, acquisition of intercultural and subject-specific skills, improvement of foreign language skills.

Requirements for funding:

  • being in contact with the host institution and organizing your stay in coordination with the International Office;
  • agreeing to a work or training plan with the host institution in consultation with the International Office;
  • the endorsement of the ERASMUS+ stay by the superior in coordination with the International Office.

Funding is not awarded for participation in scientific conferences.

For stays at universities, an ERASMUS+ cooperation agreement between the universities (unlike the mobility programme for teaching purposes) is not absolutely necessary. You are not limited in choosing a host institution. However, it is often easier to contact partner universities.

If you are interested in the programme, please contact Sabine Paez.

Applications must be submitted to the International Office. All documents must be submitted to Sabine Paez at least one month prior to your departure.
