Erasmus+ Staff Mobility Grants: OUTBOUND
For 2017/18 Swansea University is offering 4 Erasmus+ staff mobility grants for Swansea University academic staff to undertake short teaching visits to selected Texas partner universities:
- Grants comprise €820 for travel and €160/day for subsistence and are available to support short teaching visits to the following Texas partner universities: The University of Texas at Austin, Rice University, The University of Houston and Texas A&M University
- Funds are available to support visits of up to 11 days (two of which will be travel days).
- The duration of the visit to the partner university may exceed 11 days, but the award value and teaching commitment remain unchanged.
- Visits can be a shorter duration but must comprise a minimum of 5 working days.
- Recipients are required to deliver 8 hours of teaching per week to students at the partner university during the visit. For visits exceeding one week, the teaching requirement will be calculated on a pro rata basis.
- Recipients are expected to use the non-teaching time in Texas to explore and develop new collaborations in research, teaching and/or student exchange with the host institution. Recipients will be required to submit a report following their visit.
