About the Programme
Through the Erasmus+ programme for academic mobility, VUM provides a wide range of mobility opportunities to its academic and non-academic staff members. Every year, at least 20% of all VUM staff members take part in the Erasmus+ programme for academic mobility. Since 2018, more than 40 outgoing Erasmus+ staff mobilities for teaching or training have been carried out at VUM. It goes without saying that Erasmus+ is all about widening horizons and the staff mobility opportunities are no exception to that. The majority of VUM staff members, who have taken part in an Erasmus+ mobility, report on improved links with their peers abroad, new skills and knowledge obtained, enhanced communication and language skills etc. The actual purpose of the outgoing staff mobility may vary from teaching at one of the numerous VUM partner universities to getting trained or engaged in workshops and/or job shadowing at VUM partner institutions abroad. The chief end of every staff mobility is the transfer of good practices in teaching or in administration as well as the exchange of new ideas linked to prospective academic projects and/or joint research endeavours.
