Teacher-researchers

If you are going on an international assignment, you must obtain prior authorisation in accordance with the conditions of your trip (application for authorisation to be absent abroad).

With Erasmus +

The Erasmus + Programme allows you to carry out three different types of mobility:

  • Mobility Organisation (MO)
    It allows to follow the mobility of a student of the University of Montpellier sent on a mobility programme in a European partner university. It also finances preparatory visits to sign new Erasmus agreements.
    Destinations: this funding is only valid for destinations in Europe.
  • Teaching mobility (STA)
    This type of mobility allows students to teach (minimum of 8 hours of classes excluding lectures for 2 days, excluding travel) at a partner university. This mobility is carried out within the framework of an inter-university agreement and can last up to two months with the possibility of leaving throughout the year. Depending on the destination and the duration of the mobility, a contribution from the UM home institution may be requested. The eligible training period is from 2 days to 2 months. Depending on the destination and duration of the mobility, a contribution from the UM's home organisation may be requested.
    Destinations: this funding is valid in Europe and outside Europe (Erasmus+ International Mobility Programme for MIC credits).
  • Training mobility (STT)
    This type of mobility is aimed at teacher-researchers for training purposes to enable the acquisition of knowledge from experience and the observation of good practices abroad. But also to help develop cooperation between the University of Montpellier and international companies. NB: the main part of the training should not consist of participation in conferences, seminars or workshops.
    The University of Montpellier is committed to promoting equity and inclusion of participants in the programme, including those with special needs, such as people with mental (intellectual, cognitive, or learning disabilities), physical, sensory, or other disabilities.
    Destinations: this funding is available in Europe and outside Europe (Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility programme).
