Application and Selection Procedure

The procedures for application and selection of VUM staff members to participate in an Erasmus+ staff mobility as well as the general rules applicable in the process of management and administration of the Erasmus+ programme at the institutional level are stipulated in the Rules and Regulations document accessible here. The document is validated by VUM Rector’s Council.

Application deadline for 2020/2021: 27th November 2020.

Provided part of the allocated funding remains unused, VUM International Mobility Office will announce a second call for applications (deadline 18th December 2020).

The Application Forms for staff mobility for teaching and for staff mobility for training should be emailed to in line with the above-mentioned deadlines. Further to this, there should be a written confirmation from the direct supervisor (for the academic staff – VUM Academic Director) attached certifying the relevance of the mobility and the indicated period of the mobility.

Selection criteria

Eligible applicants shall be full-time employees of VUM. The selection of applicants is carried out based on the information provided in the Application Forms including a teaching/training programme, the written confirmation from the direct supervisor, invitation/letter of confirmation issued by the receiving institution indicating the envisaged mobility period and the number of teaching/training hours, short motivation of the receiving institution’s choice and the mobility objectives. Clearly justified value-added for the institution to be achieved as a result of the prospective staff mobility would be considered an advantage during the selection procedure. Selection is fair and transparent and in line with the predefined rules and regulations for the management and implementation of the Erasmus+ programme for academic mobility at the institutional level. Selection results are announced within one month after the deadline for submission of the application forms. All candidates are informed personally on the selection results. The latter is also published on the website of the institution. Selection results from the staff mobility application procedure for 2019/2020 could be found here.
