Foreign stays for non-academic staff: internships and lectures


Under the Erasmus+ Europe programme, a staff member of a higher education institution may go for the training:
  • at a foreign higher education institution (the purpose is to exchange experience in the form of a study visit, shadowing or other training),
  • to a foreign company (training / research center) for various types of activities — seminar, workshop, course, conference, training.

The stay must be agreed and confirmed in advance (a confirmation/invitation letter). Work plan (purpose of travel, lecture/ training program, expected results) confirmed by the host and home institutions must be approved in advance. Maximum stay is 6 weeks. The grant is awarded in the form lump sums per week of stay, travel expenses are reimbursed based on real expenses. Upon returning from the stay, you must fill in a trip report (you will be prompted by email) and bring signed confirmation of stay.

ERASMUS+ outside Europe

This program allows MU staff to attend 7–14 days training at universities in Erasmus+ partner countries/ universities outside the European Union. Training mobility has the main objective of sharing experience between the two institutions (workshops, shadowing, etc.). An employee can apply for a training stay as both a trainer and a trained one.

The STELLA program, the mobility of non-academic staff within the universities included in the Compostela Group, allows both week-long internships to non-academic staff at a foreign university and various MU departments to offer a vacancy for a one-week internship for staff from a foreign university. MU membership in the CGU provides the university with the opportunity to send one non-academic employee to this program with a CGU grant.

Applications are submitted once a year at the beginning of each calendar year.
