ERASMUS+ International Teaching Mobility - Outgoing

With the new generation of ERASMUS+, teaching visits to selected partner universities of the University of Vienna outside of Europe are being funded.
(Please note: this variant of the programme is not to be confused with the “classic” ERASMUS+ Teaching Mobility within Europe)

Applications can be submitted at any time, provided the allocation has not already been exhausted. Please note that this regulation is subject to change and that the partner universities and fields of study included in the programme may change year on year. Information on the positions which are currently open for applications can be found via the quicklinks.


  • Duration of visit: approx 5-10 days (to be agreed with the lecturer (Referent/Referentin) responsible)
  • For visits of 5-7 days, at least 8 teaching periods (of 60 minutes each)
  • The minimum number of teaching periods increases for longer visits:
    10 days = 12 teaching periods, 12 days = 16 teaching periods
  • Mag./MA. and at least 1 year teaching experience
  • Applicants must be in a proper employment relationship with the University of Vienna at the time they apply and this must continue at least until the end of the mobility visit

Those employed as part-time lecturers (Lektor/Lektorin) may also apply and undertake their ERASMUS visit in the semester in which they are to give lectures at the University of Vienna and are therefore in an active employment relationship with the University of Vienna.
The programme is particularly aimed at teaching staff who are participating in the programme for the first time.
