University of the Arts London is committed to developing and promoting opportunities for staff development under the Erasmus+ programme.
UAL staff can develop their professional and person skills through teaching or training across Europe under the new European Union’s Erasmus+ programme.
UAL also welcomes incoming staff members.
Outgoing staff mobility
Erasmus+ programme funds two types of mobility:
Staff training: for administrative, technical or academic staff. It involves a period of training at a host institution (which may not necessarily be a HEI).
Staff teaching: for academic staff. It involves a period of teaching at a partner institution which has an inter-institutional Erasmus+ agreement with UAL.
Any academic or non-academic staff member, employed by UAL is eligible to apply for staff teaching or/and staff training under the Erasmus+ programme.
Extensive information on outgoing staff mobility for UAL staff members can be found on staff intranet pages. Please visit the staff intranet and search for 'Erasmus Staff Mobility'.
Incoming staff mobility
The Erasmus+ programme funds two types of mobility:
- Staff training: for administrative, technical or academic staff. It involves a period of training at UAL.
- Staff teaching: for academic staff. It involves a period of teaching at UAL. Only academic staff from the institutions which have an inter-institutional Erasmus+ agreement with UAL can apply for this type of mobility.
Please ask the International Office at your home university whether such an agreement is in place.
