1. What is Erasmus Staff Training?
Erasmus staff training provides funding for staff at Warwick to visit an HEI or enterprise in specified European countries. This is a development opportunity and it is intended that participants will plan to cover a variety of activities (work shadowing, attending seminars and training sessions) to ensure they make the most of the experience.

2. How much is the funding worth?

Regardless of the destination country, the maximum travel grant is €450.

In addition to the travel grant, receipted subsistence costs up to the following maxima can also be reimbursed:

Country Band 

Daily Subsistence Rate
(based on 1 week)

Band B
Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey 


Band C
Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden 


Band D

Additional funds are available for staff with disabilities wishing to participants in cases where mobility costs exceed the maximum grant allocations.

Please note that funding can only be released on receipted expenditure, and it is anticipated that you will normally be reimbursed by the Finance Office within 4 weeks of the International Office receiving your receipts.

3. How does it work?
Please see the flowchart detailing the timeline for the Erasmus Staff Training Scheme.

4. On what basis will funding be awarded?

In line with the criteria set by Erasmus, the Learning and Development Centre will be awarding funding to those members of staff who can demonstrate through their application form that the experience will increase their knowledge and skills. Staff will also be expected to gain their line manager’s support for the exercise. Priority will be given to first-time applicants and where there are two equally worthy applications, preference will be given to a department which has previously hosted, or has agreed to host an incoming staff training placement.

5. When can I travel?
While we anticipate most placements taking place between March and July 2011. However, you can take your trip as soon as funds have been awarded.
