University staff can obtain funding for stays abroad through ERASMUS+. These stays must serve the purpose of providing continuing professional development. Applications can generally be submitted at any time. However, approval is subject to sufficient funds being applied for and made available by the EU. Make sure to start preparing your stay abroad as early as possible. The International Office is happy to assist you with the necessary planning and applications.
The length of the stays abroad that can be funded have a minimum and maximum duration. They must last at least two days (for countries in the program) or five days (for partner countries) and at most 60 days.
** If you are interested in international mobility, please consult your line manager, the Human Resources department and the International Office as early as possible. **
Mobility options with ERASMUS+
If you are a member of our teaching staff wishing to take up a guest lectureship abroad, you can apply for an ERASMUS+ grant. Funding is available for professors, research assistants, doctoral students involved in teaching, and staff from foreign companies and organizations who are invited to the FHE for teaching purposes. The stay must comprise at least two days and eight working hours.
You can find all details on the terms and conditions and financial support available on the NA DAAD website.

Language courses combined with a stay abroad offer you the opportunity to improve your language skills and put them into practice at your chosen destination. It is a prerequisite that the language you intend to learn is spoken in the target country. Since you are dependent on communication in the foreign language, these courses are usually highly successful in terms of language learning and provide added value for you as an employee, both personally and professionally.

Job shadowing allows you to spend a fixed period of time with a colleague who works in a similar field at one of our partner universities. This enables you to gain detailed insights into the responsibilities, decision-making processes and networks the colleague is involved in. The aim is to actively share ideas, experience and approaches to work. Job shadowing can be used by members of staff at FHE, but also by colleagues from our partner universities.
As with all continuing education and training opportunities offered through funding programs, the sooner you start planning, the better!
