Teaching mobility STA Erasmus + - Bordeaux Montaigne University v1.2

Erasmus + STA (Teaching Mobility)

The Erasmus Mobility activity called STA (STAFF TEACHING ASSIGNMENT) allows the sharing of skills and disciplinary experience as well as the discovery of new methodologies by giving classes integrated into the partner institution’s program.

Since 1987, the Erasmus + Program boosted European student’s mobility activities; those exchanges would not have been possible without the existing connections between the teaching staff of partner universities.

The education missions are based on the principle of an already existing bilateral agreement between the host and the home institutions.  
To check this item, you can access the International Cooperation database.

In which country is an Erasmus mobility activity possible?

In countries participating to the program:

  • The 27 countries of the European Union: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden
  • The UK (possible until 2022)
  • The 3 AELE country: Iceland,  Liechtenstein and Norway;
  • The North Macedonian Republic
  • Serbia
  • Turkey.
  • For Switzerland, the European Commission decided to finance no mobility activity. However, your partners may offer you to pay themselves the cost of the missions.


  • Duration of the Education mission: teachers can undertake educational missions in a European partner’s institution. The mobility period can vary between 2 days and 5 days of work with at least 8 hours of teaching. You may be granted one travel day before and/or after your mobility.

Please note: holidays and weekends are not taken into account unless they are worked or traveled.

  • Mission’s Objective: give classes integrated in the partner institution’s official program, allowing students not able to take part in a European mobility activity to benefit from the instruction of another European country’s teacher in their own institution.


There are two possible cases:

  • You know a teacher at Bordeaux Montaigne University: Check the validity of the bilateral agreement and organize jointly the modality of your teachings (content, L, M or D level and duration).
  • You don’t know any teacher at Bordeaux Montaigne University: check the teaching staff database at the Training and Research Department  or contact the International Relations Office (staff-mobility @ u-bordeaux-montaigne.fr), who will help with the procedure by looking for teachers available for your inquiry.

If the inter-university agreement already exists, the International Relations Office will ask you to register on our incoming staff mobility portal, fill out a form online and upload the requested documents. We will then send you an Invitation Letter in order for your home university to prepare the documents necessary for your mobility activity.
