Staff and Teaching Mobility

You would like to experience the world from a different perspective? Broaden your horizons and interact with colleagues from other countries? Or do you just need a change of scenery? Then you should consider a staff or teaching mobility.

Teaching Mobility

Nordhausen University of Applied Sciences gives financial support for guest lecturing at partner universities in all Erasmus + states (EU-33). Teaching staff exchanges with universities outside the EU-33 usually needs to be financed by the department budget.

Erasmus+ sponsors guest lecturerships at European partner universities that hold an Erasmus University Charter. The guest lecturers help strengthening the European dimension of the host university, supplementing their curriculum and imparting their expertise to students who can not study abroad. In the process, the development of joint study programs of the two partner universities and the exchange of teaching content and methods is intended to be included.

All members of the University of Applied Sciences Nordhausen charged with teaching are eligible to participate. The teaching period should take at least two days and at least eight lessons.

The Erasmus + program offers the following services for teaching mobility at partner universities:

  • Travel costs (according to distance)
  • Subsistence costs (according to destination countries)

Training Mobility

As further support for the internationalisation of higher education institutions, university staff from all areas (teaching and administration) can participate in education and training at European universities and foreign companies/institutions.

All persons employed at the University of Applied Sciences Nordhausen (also retired lecturers and teachers) can participate. The stay should last at least two working days.

The Erasmus + program offers the following services for training mobility at partner universities:

  • Travel costs (according to distance)
  • Subsistence costs (according to destination countries)
