Information for LSE teaching staff

Erasmus + Staff Teaching Mobilities

In 2014 the Erasmus + programme was launched.  There are changes which staff considering participating in an exchange should be aware of:

  • exchanges must contain a minimum of eight hours teaching - conference attendance can no longer be supported;
  • priority must be given to staff who haven't benefitted from an Erasmus exchange 
  • travel grants have been reduced and may not cover the full cost of return travel to the host institution 
  • the LSE requires that all exchanges are reciprocal
  • Subsistence grants are paid in line with the LSE expenses system.  Once all receipts for costs are submitted to the Erasmus Coordinator, we will be able to pay your grant (travel and accommodation costs can be paid in-advance with evidence of payment).

The following LSE departments have bilateral exchange agreements in place for teaching staff:
