Personal and Professional Development

By taking part in the Erasmus Programme, you can get to know first-hand the workings of another European educational system, discover new ideas and exchange best practice. By enabling the exchange of best practice and the acquisition of new ideas, Erasmus will give you a great sense of fulfilment, benefiting both you and your institution.

Generate New Ideas

The experience can give you a broader and more developed capacity to appraise professional practice in the UK as your time abroad may reveal new methods and approaches that challenge your traditional way of doing things. Most participants find it a highly rewarding experience, often establishing an ongoing mutually beneficial relationship with their host universities, and return again and again.

There are 4 different types of funding available to members of staff at RGU under the Erasmus Programme:
