What Is an Erasmus Teaching Visit to a Higher Education Institution?
An Erasmus Teaching Visit is a period during which academic staff members have the opportunity to spend time at a higher education institution that is part of the Erasmus program. During this visit, lecturers conduct lectures based on a pre-agreed teaching program at a foreign higher education institution. Additionally, they can work on improving the quality of the subjects they teach and engage in discussions and the initiation/development of academic collaborations with partner institutions.
Who is Eligible for Erasmus Teaching Visits?
Academic staff from KSU are eligible to participate in Erasmus teaching visits. There are no restrictions on the number of teaching visits that a lecturer can undertake during the academic year.
How to Find a Host Higher Education Institution?
To arrange an Erasmus teaching visit, you can choose a higher education institution that has an existing agreement with KSU for Erasmus staff exchanges. You can find a list of partner institutions here. Lecturers independently coordinate the teaching program and other visit details with the relevant departments at the foreign higher education institution.
What is the Duration of an Erasmus Teaching Visit?
The duration of an Erasmus teaching visit can range from 2 days to 2 months. However, it is advisable to keep the visit to a maximum of 1 week, taking into consideration the funding provided by KSU. Visits exceeding 1 week in duration are funded only if there are available savings.
The minimum teaching workload is 8 hours per week (or a shorter period for shorter mobility).
