Erasmus+ for staff

The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is happy to consider Erasmus+ teaching (STA) mobility requests from staff who teach at any of our partner institutions.  Whilst we may not be able to accommodate all requests, we will do our best to consider your proposal as quickly as possible.  Please send a detailed teaching programme (including proposed dates) and a CV to Sarah Ward, Assistant Registrar (International and Student Experience) by email to international@rcs.ac.uk

The Conservatoire is also pleased to consider Erasmus+ training mobility requests (STT) from support staff who work at any of our partner institutions.  However, it is unlikely that we would be able to accommodate such staff for more than three days.  Please contact international@rcs.ac.uk with proposed dates and a suggested training plan.

Royal Conservatoire staff who are interested in participating in Erasmus+ teaching mobility at one of our partner institutions should request an official invitation letter from the prospective host HEI and complete the Conservatoire application form – Staff Teaching Mobility Agreement 18-19

The Director, in conjunction with the Assistant Registrar (International and Student Experience), will make a decision on whether the application can be approved based on the following factors:

  • Sufficient budget
  • First-time or previous participant in Erasmus+ (first-time participants are given priority)
  • The mobility’s contribution to the overall priorities of Erasmus+ and the EU Agenda for the Modernisation of HE
  • The mobility’s contribution to the Conservatoire’s international strategy

Mobile staff must deliver a minimum of 8 hours of teaching during their stay over the minimum duration of 2 working days.  A travel grant (for flights and travel to and from the airport) is paid at a flat rate and is based on a distance calculator. Please note that the grant is meant as a contribution towards travel costs and may not cover your entire travel costs. Subsistence (food, accommodation and local travel around the host city) is also paid at a flat rate and ranges from €100 to €160 per day depending on the destination country.  If your mobility is approved you will be guided through the application procedure (and accompanying paperwork) by the Assistant Registrar (International and Student Experience). Upon return from mobility, all teachers are required to complete an online evaluation report issued by the British Council.

Support staff at the Conservatoire are also eligible to apply for Erasmus+ staff training mobility (STT) at a partner institution or host enterprise.  Please contact international@rcs.ac.uk for more information.
