What Is an Erasmus+ Training Visit?
An Erasmus Training Visit is a period when a university’s staff member visits a foreign company, organization, or higher education institution abroad for several purposes:
- Developing new teaching materials for students.
- Expanding collaboration and exploring future partnership opportunities.
- Enhancing professional skills.
The activities during this visit can include seminars, practical observations, and similar tasks, but not conference attendance. These visits follow a pre-agreed training program approved by both the sending and hosting institutions.
Who Can Participate?
Any KSU employee can take part in Erasmus Training Visits, and there’s no limit on how many visits one employee can make during an academic year.
How to Find a Hosting Institution?
You can choose any suitable company, organization, or higher education institution in a country that fully participates in the Erasmus+ program. This choice is independent of their size, legal status, or field of work. For academic institutions with an advanced Erasmus University Charter, an inter-institutional agreement for exchanges under the Erasmus+ program must be signed between KSU and the hosting institution. You can explore a list of Erasmus partners here. The employee is responsible for negotiating the training program and visit details with the hosting institution.
What Is the Recommended Duration for a Training Visit?
Erasmus Training Visits can last from 2 days to 2 months, but it’s advisable to limit the visit to one week, considering the funding provided by KSU. Longer visits exceeding one week are only funded if there is budget available.
