Types of Mobilities

Types of mobilities available for students and staff from both the UK and Partner countries:​

Student Mobility

  • Traineeships are not available as part of the International Credit Mobility Project.

Students may participate in mobility periods up to a maximum of 12 months for each cycle of study; this is independent from the number and type of mobility activities. Participation with a zero-grant from EU funds counts as well towards this maximum duration.

  • Staff mobility for training to and from Partner Countries 

The duration of a staff mobility is 7 days, comprised of 5 days working and 2 travel days. 

Funding can be used to support HEI staff engaged in both teaching and non-teaching roles. A teaching activity must include a minimum of 8 hours of teaching per week. 

The grant cannot be used to attend conferences.
