Would a short European visit help you in your job?

Erasmus+ funding available for staff mobility

Limited funding is available each year for Kent staff to take up the opportunity to spend a minimum of 2 days in Europe, either at one of our partner universities or within another European organisation.

There are two schemes available: Teaching Mobility and Staff Training. Erasmus offers a great opportunity for academic staff to teach elsewhere in one of Kent’s partner universities in Europe, while Staff Training allows professional services staff to undertake job shadowing or participate in a university organised International Week.

Kent colleagues who have participated in the past report many benefits including: learning and sharing new ideas; developing new skills; being inspired by new colleagues and different outlooks; discovering best practices to bring back to the UK; establishing a network of new international contacts and generally having an enjoyable experience abroad!

If you would like to find out more, International Development will be holding lunchtime information sessions next week at both Canterbury and Medway campus with the opportunity to hear from colleagues who have participated in the past. There is no need to book, just turn up.

Canterbury: Tuesday 6 October at 12.30 in Keynes Lecture Theatre 2
Medway: Friday 9 October at 12.30 in Room G2-21.

If you would like more information but are unable to attend either session, please visit https://www.kent.ac.uk/international/staff/mobility.html or email Emma Marku at E.L.Marku@kent.ac.uk.
