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 any of the 33 European 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 and the UK
  • The 3 AELE country: Iceland,  Liechtenstein and Norway;
  • The North Macedonian Republic
  • Serbia
  • And 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 already do education missions in a European partner’s institution. The mobility period can vary between 2 days (at least 8hours of class) and 6 weeks (the number of hours will be tabulated in proportion to 2d/8h).
  • The missions will mandatorily take place between the 1st of June of the current academic year and the 15th of September of the concerned academic year.
  • 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 in their own institutions from the instruction of another European country’s teacher.


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 Formation 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 Bordeaux Montaigne University teacher wishing to welcome you will send you an Invitation Letter to give to your home university to prepare any document necessary for your mobility activity.
