PhD student mobility within the Erasmus programme
Within the framework of the Erasmus programme in the EU / Europe, doctoral students can go as students as well as staff. Even doctoral students who do not have formal employment can go out as staff if they can be considered to have worked for UU (eg if the doctoral student is involved in teaching and goes out to teach, this also applies to guest doctoral students).
Erasmus studies - contact the International Coordinator or equivalent at your department for more information about which agreements exist at doctoral level.
Within the framework of the Erasmus programme outside the EU, doctoral students can go out for staff training / teacher exchange (link: Staff training / Teacher exchange outside the EU)
