The event will focus on three thematic tracks:

  • Careers
  • Global Mobility
  • Library


The Global Opportunities Office will consider applications from staff working at any European institution of higher education holding an ECHE and from our Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (ICM) Programme partner institutions.

We encourage junior and intermediate-level staff to apply, including those who have never undertaken an Erasmus+ staff mobility before.

Priority will be given to applicants from our partner institutions. The participation fee for the event is GBP 85.

The application form is available here. The application form will close on 15 March 2018 at 23.59 BST.

Successful applicants will be provided with information on accommodation. It will be possible to apply for accommodation on campus (student housing). There are also many hotels nearby that participants can book directly.

Participation fee for successful applicants

Erasmus+ ICM Programme participants who will be receiving an Erasmus+ ICM Programme grant paid by QMUL will not be required to make a payment of the GBP 85 participation fee. The GO Office will deduct the participation fee from the Erasmus+ ICM grant payment made to the participant.

Contractual paperwork for successful applicants

Following initial confirmation regarding the success of their application, participants from our Erasmus+ ICM Programme partners will then receive subsequent communications in April from the GO Office regarding the contractual paperwork that will need to be completed in order to participate.

It remains the sole responsibility of the selected incoming participant preparing for a visit to the UK to 1) determine their individual visa requirements and 2) to secure any necessary visa.

Please refer to the following web link for full advice:

The GO Office at QMUL will provide all successful applicants with an official Letter of Invitation that will include:

  • all relevant participant details,
  • purpose and duration of visit
  • forecasted Erasmus+ grant amount*

This letter may be used for an eventual visa application (if applicable), along with a letter that non-EU participants are urged to request from their home institution that 1) confirms the anticipated visit and 2) serves as proof of employment in the home country.

(*) For KA107 applicants only who receive a grant from QMUL.

QMUL is committed to ensuring that all of its facilities are fully accessible.

In the application, participants will be asked to disclose any mandatory occupational health requirements (including but not limited to any disability and dyslexia concerns) so the GO Office can liaise with QMUL's Occupational Health Service in advance of your arrival in order to make every effort that you have access to sufficient support during a visit.

QMUL is committed to equality and diversity in its student and staff bodies and welcomes participants without discrimination to ethnic background, religious affiliation or lack thereof, sexual orientation, gender, or disadvantage (
