  • Course description
    Institutions may be able to use Erasmus programme "Organisation of Mobility (OM)" grants to fund staff participation in this programme.

    OM funds can be used to support English-language training of those staff at European institutions who are looking to improve their English language prior to undertaking a teaching staff exchange mobility visit and/or looking to improve their English-language in order to more effectively deliver the modules that are delivered at their home institution to incoming Erasmus students.
