If you wish to teach overseas, you must complete and return the Erasmus Application Form to the Erasmus Coordinator by 31 January 2015 for teaching commencing prior to July, i.e. to teach between June 2014 and July 2015, you will need to apply by 31 January 2014.
How much financial support is available?
By submitting your application to teach, you are automatically applying for a grant. There are maximum grant amounts for travel and subsistence and you must be aware of these. Maximum grant amounts for subsistence can be found below.
We are awaiting final confirmation of grant amounts from the British Council. However, we can advise that travel grants have been greatly reduced and may not cover the cost of a return journey to the host institution.

How do I submit receipts?
Grants are only paid on the basis of receipted expenditure. Please return your original receipts to the Erasmus Coordinator no later than 2 weeks after the completion of your mobility period. Number each receipt and add an extra sheet of paper with a brief description of all expenditure (dinner, travel, drinks, etc).
