We would like to inform you that the Erasmus Office is now announcing a new call for applications for Faculty Mobility for the Spring 2011 semester. The Erasmus Mobility is primarily aimed to benefit students, but today more and more lecturers have the chance to travel and experience other cultures, methods of teaching, and bring their teaching ideas and techniques forward.
What is Erasmus Mobility?
Erasmus is an EU-funded mobility scheme which is part of the European Community education programme, operating with the support of the Commission of the European Communities. It is based on partnerships between higher education institutions in different countries within the EU and certain other non-EU countries. At present the University of Nicosia cooperates with about 20 different European countries and gives its students and lecturers the choice of more than 80 institutions for exchange.
