Erasmus+grant for staff exchange

Information about calculation and rates for the Erasmus+ grant for staff exchange.

The grant is divided into two parts: one part is a travel grant, which depends on the distance you will travel, and the other part is a subsistence grant, which depends on where you will be and how long you will stay there.

The rates are the same for both training and teaching grant.

The grant may not cover all the expenses during your visit. Therefore, you need to clarify with your Head how the extra expenses will be covered. You will have to pay for expenses related to your visit and submit a travel expense claim as usual through SAP after the stay. The Section for Career Services, Internationalisation, and Student Services will transfer funds to your unit after the visit has been completed and all necessary documentation has been submitted.

Both OsloMet and Erasmus+ encourage the use of environmentally friendly transportation during travel, and you can receive additional grants for subsistence and travel days if you travel green on the Erasmus+ employee exchange!

  • Rates for travel grant

    The amount of the travel grant depends on the distance you will travel.

    You can calculate the travel distance using the EU Commission's distance calculator (, and the following rates apply to different distances:

    • 10 - 99 km: € 23
    • 100-499 km: € 180
    • 500-1999 km: € 275
    • 2000-2999 km: € 360
    • 3000-3999 km: € 530
    • 4000-7999 km: € 820
    • 8000 km or more: € 1500

    In the distance calculator, you enter Oslo as the starting point and enter the name of the place you are going to. Once you have done that, several suggestions will appear in a dropdown menu. Choose from that for the calculator to calculate the distance.

    The choice of mode of transportation can also affect the amount of grant you can receive for the trip! Read more about Erasmus+ green travel.
