ERASMUS staff training mobility
In order to strengthen not only its international profile, but also the relationship with current and prospective partner universities, SRH Hochschule Berlin supports its faculty and staff members in finding and implementing training opportunities abroad. We provide ERASMUS-funding for many of these stays. ERASMUS supports staff mobilities at European partner institutions, staff visits from foreign enterprises at German universities as well as professional development opportunities for academic and professional services staff at European universities and enterprises.
Many European universities organise an International Staff Training Week. Such a staff training week abroad is a great way to gain more knowledge about your own work field, increase your international network and meet colleagues from all around the world with whom you can exchange experiences and ideas. An overview of these non-academic (support) staff opportunities can be found here: staff-week.
