Teaching mobility


This type of programme affords academic staff members with the opportunity to teach in an EU institution of higher education for a period ranging between 2 days – at least 8 hours of effective teaching – and 2 months. A minimum duration of 5 days is highly recommended.
Academic staff members are selected by a university level Selection Committee, based on the priorities for the relevant academic year and the available funding. The application file must include:

  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Letter of Motivation (that is to include the proposed teaching plan as well as the reasoning behind choosing a particular university)
  • A Certificate of linguistic competence
  • Staff agreement for teaching
  • Certificate of Attendance or certificate issued by the host institution
  • Travel order form , signed and stamped by the host institution
  • A final, online EU report concerning the teaching mobility

In order to successfully complete a mobility programme – as approved by AVU`s Erasmus Charter-, the participant shall receive European Commission assigned financial aid for all transportation and living related costs.

An Erasmus+ grant does not cover all mobility related expenses; it only represents a contribution towards covering living and travel expenses. All candidates are to be informed about the necessity to co-finance part of the incurred expenses.

Erasmus+ grant values differ according to the host country, as follows:

The distance between the applicant`s country of origin and the host country is determined with the aid of the European Commission provided Distance Calculator (link: http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/tools/distance_en.htm)

The ERASMUS grant is wired into the participant`s account (which must be in Euros and operated by BRD) as follows:

- the first instalment (80% of the total grant) before the start of the mobility programme

-the second instalment (20% of the total grant) upon return from the mobility programme and filling out an EU online questionnaire.

Before departure, each academic staff member shall submit his/her Teaching Programme (signed and stamped by both AVU and host university representatives) in order for the travel order form and the financial contract to be finalized. Within 5 days from his/her return, the academic staff member shall submit the following documents:

  • A Certificate of Attendance or a document issued by the host university attesting to the programme participation
  • A travel order carrying the host institution`s signature and stamp
