Erasmus+ mo­bil­ity for fur­ther train­ing and edu­ca­tion­al pur­poses (STT)

Please note our Q&A regarding Covid-19

Interested in job shadowing the Press Officer at the Universidad de Vigo for one week? Want to exchange experiences with librarians from all over Europe at a staff training event in Helsinki? How about freshening up your English skills at a language school in Limerick?

The Erasmus programme funds further training and educational measures in Europe (Erasmus region) for academic and non-academic staff in many ways:

  • Job shadowing in your own or a related area of work

Staff training weeks are group events organised by universities that usually last one week. Some staff training weeks are open to all university staff members, but many are target towards staff from specific areas such as librarians, finance staff, career service employees etc.

You can search for upcoming and past staff week offers on the website Please check the application deadlines and details of participation for each provider.

The participation in a staff training week is usually free of charge. You can apply for funding through Erasmus+ STT to cover the costs of travel and accommodation.

  • Language courses
  • Further training in areas such as project management, third-party funding etc.
  • Job shadowing at a company/organisation

Analog zur Förderung innerhalb des Erasmus-Raumes mit Programmländern gibt es auch Fördermöglichkeiten außerhalb des Erasmus-Raumes mit den sogenannten Partnerländern.

General conditions

  • Who can apply and conditions of participation:
    Participants must have an employment contract with UPB.
  • Duration of further training and educational measures: two - 60 days (not including travel days)
  • Scope of further training and educational measures: at least 20 hours over one week (seven days) or a shorter time period.

Funding in 2019/20

  • Funds are allocated on a first come, first served basis
  • Erasmus+ funds are very limited. In order for us to plan the allocation of funds more efficiently, please submit your application for Erasmus+ funding by the end of November of each academic year. As a general rule, funding applications should be submitted no later than six weeks before the mobility is scheduled to begin.
  • Full funding (daily allowance) for up to six days, including travel days (longer trips will receive the same funding amount as a six-day trip).
  • At least one third of Paderborn University’s STT budget is reserved for stays at universities (individual trips or participation on staff training weeks).

The daily allowance is based on the cost of living in the respective destination country (see box "The Erasmus+ country groups).

Daily allowance rates:

  • Group 1: EUR 180 per day
  • Group 2: EUR 160 per day
  • Group 3: EUR 140 per day

The amount of the travel allowance depends on the distance between the point of departure and the final destination. Within Europe the distance is calculated using this calculation tool.

Green Travel:

If sustainable means of transport are used for at least 50% of the trip, an increased travel allowance is paid for the corresonding distance. "Sustainable" means of transport include (as of 11/2021): Train, bus, carpooling, biking, walking. Driving aloine in a car is not included.

Reimbursement rates

distance How much? How much for green travel?
10 km - 99 km 23 EUR -
100 km – 499 km 180 EUR 210 EUR
500 km – 1.999 km 275 EUR 320 EUR
2.000 km – 2.999 km 360 EUR 410 EUR

Spe­cial fund­ing for staff with severe dis­ab­il­it­ies

On application, you will receive the additional financial requirement of up to 10,000 € in addition to the regular Erasmus+ funding. An individual estimate will be made of the additional costs that are expected to arise during Erasmus+ mobility or in the host country and that will not be covered by other funding institutions. These include, for example, additional costs for barrier-free accommodation, travel assistance, medical care abroad, adaptation of learning materials or an accompanying person.
