Teacher and staff mobility
With the Erasmus+ Programme, IULM teachers can undertake a short period of mobility for teaching activities at a European university holding an ECHE (Erasmus Charter for Higher Education) with which IULM has signed a bilateral agreement, receiving a Community mobility grant.
IULM teachers can also host foreign colleagues in their courses, provided that they come from European universities holding ECHE (Erasmus Charter for Higher Education) with which there are bilateral Erasmus+ agreements. The incoming teacher's mobility grants are provided by his/her university of origin.
The aim of the programme is to provide teachers with an opportunity for:
- professional growth
- expansion and enrichment of the contents of its courses
- promotion of innovative content at their home institution
- exchange of best practices on teaching with international colleagues
- experimenting with foreign language teaching in a multicultural European context.
With the prior agreement of the host foreign colleague, the teacher must carry out at least 8 hours of teaching for a minimum of two working days within a course officially activated at the university of destination
The following are allowed to participate in the program:
- full professors
- associate professors
- contract professors
The teacher interested in starting an exchange with a foreign colleague (both incoming and outgoing) must check with the Mobility Office both for the pre-existence of a bilateral agreement with the university of the partner teacher and - only in the case of outgoing mobility - the availability of residual EU funds. Teachers are invited to read the regulations in advance, with particular attention to the rules for reporting available funds
Once these checks have been made, the outgoing teacher must make an independent agreement with the host teacher, establishing the dates, content and duration of the mobility. Everything must be described and defined in advance in the Teaching Agreement, which is signed by both the teachers and the respective Erasmus+ administrative offices
In the case of incoming mobility, the host IULM teacher, once verified with the office the existence of a bilateral Erasmus+ agreement, must only communicate the dates on which he/she will host the foreign colleague and request the signature of the required documentation.
The Fulbright Program aims to promote cultural exchange between Italy and the United States in all fields: from humanities and sciences to social sciences and the arts.
Conceived in 1946 by Senator J. William Fulbright to foster the peace process through the exchange of ideas and culture between the United States and other nations in the world, it is currently the most important international cultural exchange program in the United States. The Program operates in more than 155 countries around the world and there are about 294,000 participants who have benefited from a Fulbright scholarship for study, research or teaching programs in the United States and in the countries participating in the program over the past 60 years. Every year around 7,500 Fulbright scholarships are awarded worldwide.
The program is aimed at graduates in all disciplines, PhD students, researchers and university professors, promoting opportunities for study, research and teaching in Italy and the United States through scholarships. Scholarships are also offered to Italian universities interested in inviting Fulbright US teachers and researchers to their premises to hold lectures and/or seminars.

Under the Erasmus+ programme, IULM technical and administrative staff can undertake a short mobility period for training activities at a European university holding an ECHE (Erasmus Charter for Higher Education) and receive a Community mobility grant.
IULM offices can also host foreign administrative colleagues for an indicative duration of 5 working days, provided that they come from European universities holding ECHE (Erasmus Charter for Higher Education). The mobility grants for incoming staff are provided by their university of origin.
The aim of the programme is to provide administrative and technical staff with an opportunity for:
- professional growth
- expansion and enrichment of their expertise
- exchange of administrative best practices with international colleagues
To participate in the programme it is important to have a knowledge of English at least at B2 level as - regardless of the country of destination - English is used as the working language.
Mobility can also consist of participation in International Staff Weeks organized by the partner universities.
During an International Staff Week participants from different European universities visit the host university, meet contacts and colleagues from their own fields of work, get involved in group activities for the exchange of practices, and attend short conferences on various aspects of work on an international level. When the Mobility Office receives invitations to International Staff Weeks, it will forward them to colleagues potentially interested in the topics covered by the programme.
