Funding programmes

Visiting academics (ERASMUS)

Visiting academics can be awarded one- to six-week teaching assignments at the University of Münster on the basis of an ERASMUS agreement. Details regarding the duration and content of such assignments are specified in accordance with the project partner of the respective faculty or the International Office. Funding applications for visiting academics must be submitted to their respective home university, as ERASMUS funding for teaching staff mobility is always paid by the sending institution.
