Teacher and staff mobility

EAMT teachers and staff have the opportunity to participate in teaching or training activities In frames of the Erasmus+ and Nordplus programmes both at European universities and at partner institutions outside the EU. In addition it’s possible to invite teachers and staff from partner institutions and various professional organisations (including freelance experts) to EAMT. There are also options to implement international development projects.

Teacher and staff exchange includes two types of mobility:

  1. Teaching mobility covering exchanges with the purpose of teaching at a partner university (including incoming experts teaching at EAMT);
  2. Staff training for university employees (including academic employees) at partner universities as well as companies and other such organisations. Staff training mobility needs to be approved by the EAMT Rector’s Office. Please send the STT application to the International Office, erasmus@eamt.ee

The applications of incoming experts are accepted on a running basis but it’s recommended to submit these at least 2 months before the planned teaching activity to erasmus@eamt.ee.


Participation criteria

The mobility participant needs to be a contractual employee at the sending institution (including employment, service or agency contracts). Teaching mobility is possible at institutions with whom EAMT has signed an Erasmus agreement or that belong to Nordplus thematic networks

For mobility with programme countries priority is given to teacher training that enhances pedagogical and curriculum design skills. 


Mobility duration

  • While Nordplus teacher mobility duration can be just one day, the minimum duration of Erasmus+ mobility within Europe is 2 days and of international credit mobility 5 days, excluding travel days. 
  • A teaching activity has to comprise a minimum of 8 hours of teaching per week (or any shorter period of stay). A week is defined as five working days. If the mobility lasts longer than one week, the minimum number of teaching hours for an incomplete week should be proportional to the duration of that week.
  • If the teaching activity is combined with a training activity during a single period abroad, the minimum number of hours of teaching per week (or any shorter period of stay) is reduced to 4 hours.
