The University College of Teacher Education in Vienna is internationally very well linked to the advantage of our students, graduates and teaching staff. We pride ourselves on an established network of more than 100 partner universities and colleges across Europe, many of which are in Central and Eastern European countries. Through promoting student and teaching staff mobility within the network, we are aiming for an exchange of scientific knowledge and expertise to enhance mutual cooperation and deepen our understanding of each other.
Erasmus+ is the European Union’s exchange programme for students, teachers and administrative staff of educational institutions since 2014. The cross-border partnerships between universities serve to strengthen the European idea and to improve the personal skills and employability of participants. Another aim is the sustainable development of higher education in the sense of the European community spirit.
As part of the learning mobility of individuals, students can complete a part of their education or an internship abroad. Graduates have the opportunity to do a work placement as well. Particularly the mobility of teachers and administrative staff promotes and strengthens the international contacts in the field of higher education.
According to the regulations outlined by the EU higher education programmes for Staff Mobility – Staff Training we need to receive a Work Plan from prospective guest staff members or for Teaching Staff Mobility a Teaching Programme from prospective guest-lecturers.
This Work Plan must be endorsed by both the sending institution and the host institution.
The guest-lecturer’s visit should be then planned into the time table of the University College of Education in Vienna and the area of teaching integrated into the curriculum of respective studies.
