These daily rates are supplemented by travel costs depending on the actual distances between the place of departure and destination of the mobility, which are determined uniformly throughout Europe using a calculation tool.

Tips and information

The Erasmus staff mobility is not a 1:1 exchange programme. However, you should be prepared in principle to receive a return visit. Please note that you must have appropriate language skills in order to be able to carry out your training stay in a meaningful way. Do not forget to make arrangements for time off or similar with your supervisor.
