Incoming Staff Mobility

International Staff Week 2018: Creative Collaboration Across Borders

19 March – 23 March 2018

This year’s International Staff Week will explore the theme of Creative Collaboration Across Borders. At UAL, we believe that creativity has to operate across borders by necessity and during a time when borders (cultural, geographical, political) are becoming more fixed, we want to celebrate the projects that engender this commitment.

For more detailed information, please read the UAL International Staff Week 2018 Draft Agenda (PDF 385KB). The finalised agenda will be confirmed in March.

Please apply online by 1 March.

Erasmus+ programme funds two types of mobility:

Staff training: for administrative, technical or academic staff. It involves a period of training at UAL.

Staff teaching: for academic staff. It involves a period of teaching at UAL. Only academic staff from the institutions which have an inter-institutional Erasmus+ agreement with UAL can apply for this type of mobility.

Please ask the International Office at your home university whether such an agreement is in place.
