Internationalisation

Teacher and staff exchange to Uppsala University from outside EU

Erasmus+ is the European Union’s programme for education, training, youth and sport. It runs from January 2014 through the academic year of 2020/21. Within Erasmus+ there is a part called Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (ICM). This allows for teachers and staff to come to Uppsala University on an exchange.

The International Office at Uppsala University applies for new grants each year, so the list of Erasmus+ partner universities outside EU may change. Next time the list of approved partners will be updated is spring 2019.

  • Teacher and staff exchanges to Uppsala University are 7-14 days and in addition applicants can get the scholarship for 2 travel days. Below you find a list of universities and the number of days.
  • The scholarships are at least EUR 160 per day in Sweden and EUR 112 per day for the 2 travel days. The scholarship will be paid to the grantee upon arrival to Uppsala University.

Staff mobility for Teaching (STA)

Teaching at a partner university, a so called Staff mobility for Teaching (STA), means that a teacher teaches at Uppsala University at least 8 hours/week. Activities that may count as teaching include all types of teaching of students where the teacher is physically present at the host university, e.g. seminars, lectures and tutoring. The goal for the teacher is to have a chance to develop professionally and personally, to strengthen contacts between the partner universities, and to spread knowledge to the host and home university.

Staff mobility for Training (STT)

Employees at partners to Uppsala University may receive the grant to improve their skills and develop their work by going to Uppsala University to do ”job shadowing”, working next to colleagues that have similar work tasks. PhD students may also go on staff training, if the activity is connected to the PhD student´s possible future career or current work at the home university. The staff training should be full time.

International Staff Week - May 14 – 20, 2019

Uppsala University will offer an International Staff week May 14-20, 2019. During this week staff from our Erasmus+ ICM partners will have an opportunity to learn more about internationalisation, research, education and student engagement at Uppsala University.

Tentative content: Day 1: Introduction, Day 2: Internationalisation, Day 3: Research, Day 4: Education and student engagement, Day 5: job shadowing/workshops/study visits related to incoming staff members professional background, evaluation and closure.
