ERASMUS+ What is it?


Travel to one of the partners universities

BGU staff member may travel to an European University only after BGU has signed an Erasmus+ agreement with that University.
(An Erasmus+ Agreement with a European University is being signed only after the EU approval of the Erasmus+ Application done by the European University).

Travels may be for 2 different purposes:

  • - Training (for professional improvement)
  • - Teaching (the invited person has to teach minimum 8 frontal hours)

The hosting program for a Teaching Erasmus+ Mobility must be of minimum 8 frontal teaching hours (this may be at seminars, part of an ongoing course, at graduate student special meeting, extracurriculum special guest lecture, a special professional presentation for staff members…etc)

Erasmus+ program funds are for the cover of travel expenses, living expenses as defined by the European Union. A fixed amount is allocated per mobility, and may vary in each country and University.

Each European University allocates a different number of "Spots" for teaching/training mobility to and from BGU.

One week: 5 working ​days +2 days travel.
The mobility should be planned to benefit ​all parties involved from both institutions (host and visitor).
