Opportunities available depend on existing agreements between UBC and each European institution. If there is an agreement for outbound staff and/or faculty mobility under the Erasmus+ Programme, we will post an open call for applications with details on the partner institution, eligibility, duration and field of interest. Funding depends on the length of stay at the partner institution and distance travelled.
