Where to go?

Keen to increase its presence on the international university scene, the UG has an ambitious cooperation policy, with partnerships in North and South America, Africa and Europe. See the list of our partners here.

Who is it for?

International outreach is aimed at the UG's teaching and administrative staff, both contract and permanent.

Erasmus+ mobility in Europe | Teachers

financement ERASMUS+

Teachers can be mobile STA (Staff mobility for Teaching Assignement) with our European universities partners. This mobility consists of a trip to the partner university to give 8 hours of lessons (compulsory) in the language of the host country or in English. The UG teacher must therefore contact the university to which he or she wishes to go in order to propose a teaching subject and find out whether the university is available to receive students.

Combined mobility : the possibility of combining teaching and training activities over the same period. The minimum number of teaching hours per week is reduced to 4 hours.

The BIS will then provide the Erasmus+ dossier to be completed and will manage the Erasmus+ grant.

Attention Conferences are not eligible for staff mobility.

Erasmus+ mobility in Europe | Administrative staff* (in French)

financement ERASMUS+

Administrative staff can move STT (Staff Training Mobility) as part of the Staff Week. This mobility consists of taking part in a training week organised by a European university. All Staff Weeks are listed on the website iMotionTo apply for a post, the agent must first apply for the post they want and then complete an application form, which will be submitted to the UG's International Relations Committee.

If the mobility is accepted, the BIS will provide the Erasmus+ dossier to be completed and will manage the Erasmus+ grant.

*Teachers can also take part in STT exchanges.

Attention Conferences are not eligible for staff mobility.

Members of staff with disabilities

The University of Guyana and the Erasmus + programme pay particular attention to welcoming, guiding and providing educational and technical support for people with disabilities. The aim is to ensure that all individuals benefit fully from their European mobility experience.

To meet the specific needs of a disabled person while on the move, the granting of a additional financing in addition to the Erasmus+ mobility grant is designed to facilitate participation.

In order to meet the specific needs of an individual with a disability during their mobility, the granting of additional funding on top of the Erasmus+ mobility grant aims to facilitate their participation. In order to best prepare for your Erasmus+ mobility period, you must complete the additional funding application form that BIS will send you so that you can indicate the additional costs linked to your disability.

The costs eligible for additional funding can be diverse: special accommodation, assistance from a companion during the trip, medical follow-up, material support, home help or even a life assistant.

For more information, please contact BIS:

Please note: applications for additional funding must be sent to BRI no later than 1? months before the start of the mobility period. Members of staff with disabilities are therefore advised to apply early so that their applications can be processed as quickly as possible.
