ERASMUS Faculty Exchange programme gives university lecturers the possibility to spend teaching periods abroad. Lecturers give generally short courses, as part of the official curriculum of a partner university in another European country. These periods can last from 1 week up to 6 weeks (minimum 5 teaching hours), depending on the need and arrangement with the host institution. Priority is given to candidates who participate for the first time in Erasmus Faculty Exchange. Only institutions which hold an Erasmus University Charter may send or receive an Erasmus faculty. There must be prior agreement between the universities concerned before a faculty can benefit from the Erasmus scheme. The participating faculty must be nationals of one of the countries participating in Erasmus program. The time spent in the host country is fully recognized by your home university.
