Academic and administrative staff mobilities
These opportunities are designed to address the need for professional development of university staff and are limited to staff employed by the consortium partner universities, and aside from the individual opportunity, are aimed at building enhanced mutual institutional knowledge. This is intended to lead to the development of cooperative projects, benchmarking exercises, guest lecturing, curriculum development, sharing of knowledge and academic resources such as libraries and infrastructure and sabbatical research periods are included in this type of mobility. Individual projects will require strong support of the sending institutions and a matching host mentor / academic colleague will be found to support all staff during their mobility period.

Exchange opportunities (Masters and PhD)
Students registered as full-degree students at one of the partner universities comprising the consortium, spend a short period (11 months minimum) at one of the other institutions in the consortium and return to their home institution after the exchange period to complete their degree at the home institution. Exchange students will spend their period at the host university as researchers mainly, being engaged in literature reviews, specialised theoretical or methodological training, or field studies and they will closely co-operate with their host and home university supervisors.

In addition to the above criteria there may be others defined internally by the partner institution to which you are applying. It is strongly recommended that applicants liaise with the relevant contact persons at the host institution and carefully read the “Guidelines for Applicants” and institutional and study programme information prior to submitting their application
