Erasmus+ Mobility Grant for Teaching Purposes

Erasmus + mobility grant for teaching purposes provides staff members at OsloMet with the opportunity to teach at one of OsloMet’s Erasmus + partner institutions in Europe.

Where can I go?

You have many possibilities when finding out where you want to go. OsloMet cooperates with partner institutions in most countries included in Erasmus +. This includes the 28 EU-countries, in addition to Iceland, Liechtenstein, Turkey, North Macedonia and Serbia. Please contact the international coordinator at your department/faculty to find out where you can go.

Brexit: UK will continue to participate in the Erasmus+ programme until the end of the programme in June 2022 despite Brexit. You can therefore apply for Erasmus+ grants to travel to the UK according to the other Erasmus+ criteria and within the normal deadlines.
