Teaching stay at a European partner institution

Lecturers at Aarhus University can apply for a grant for a study stay at an Erasmus partner institution.

The grant is approx. EUR 800 per teaching stay. The stay must consist of at least 8 hours of instruction per week and last between 2 days and 2 months (excluding transport). However, the grant can only cover up to 12 days + 2 travel days.


There is no application deadline. You will only need to apply at least 1 month before your stay.

Distribution of grants

The grants are allocated based on a principle of diversification, so that employees from as many faculties as possible share in the funds. Also, priority is given to first-time applicants. Particular attention is paid to whether the candidate is working with international relations at AU, and whether the stay includes an international future perspective.

You can expect an answer to the application within one month. 

You will receive a contract by e-mail. The contract must be signed and returned to the International Centre. The department/school account number to which the grant should be transferred must be specified in the contract.

Before the stay

Prior to the stay abroad you must draw up a teaching programme, which has been approved by both the home institution and the Erasmus partner institution. The teaching programme must, among other things, describe the aim and benefits of the stay. It is the employee’s responsibility to ensure the host institution’s agreement to the visit.

The teaching programme must be approved and signed by the home institution, host institution and the grant recipient, and forwarded to the International Centre.

After the stay

After the stay you must:

  • Fill out an online report form. You will receive further information via email.
  • Submit a Certificate of Attendance, which has been signed by the host institution, to the International Centre.
  • Submit a travel expense reimbursement claim via AURUS. Travel expenses for transport must not exceed EUR 300. If the travel expenses add up to less than EUR 300, the size of the grant may be smaller than the sum originally awarded.

Grant payment

The grant is paid upon completion of the stay abroad. Once the proper documentation has been received, the Erasmus staff mobility grant will be transferred to the department.
