General Rules and Procedures
STAFF MOBILITY FOR TEACHING ASSIGNMENTS (STA)
Erasmus+ enables university academic staff to spend teaching periods at the partner universities via bilateral agreements in which the staff mobility for teaching assignments is foreseen. Teaching periods can have a duration of 2 days - 2 months, on condition of minimum 8 lecture hours per week. The purposes of STA may be summarized as follows:
- to provide teaching staff with opportunities for personal & professional development
- to share expertise in specialist areas within teacher education, to deepen mutual understanding of different European Education Systems and to raise the profile of the European Dimension in Education
- to allow students who are not able to participate in mobility to benefit from the knowledge and expertise of staff in other European institutions.
There are two types of programs which enable staff exchange under Erasmus+: KA103 Erasmus Staff Mobility and KA107 International Credit Mobility. Information for KA103 Erasmus Staff Mobility can be found below. Please click here for information about KA107 International Credit Mobility.
A. KA103 - Erasmus Staff Mobility:
To be able to participate in this mobility program, your Department/School/Faculty/Institute must have a valid Erasmus+ Faculty exchange agreement with the partner institution you intend to visit.

The grants will be paid by the Swiss partner institutions.
