People with disabilities:

People with disabilities include people whose physical or health status makes it difficult to participate in an Erasmus+ mobility activity without additional support. European Commission and Open University of Cyprus encourage the participation of staff with disabilities in all activities of the Erasmus+ programme. Incoming staff for training should check with their home university for the provision of additional funding.



Universities operating in a country that participates in the Erasmus+ programme. A valid Erasmus+ inter-institutional agreement between OUC and the partner university is not mandatory for training mobility activities.



It is preferable to inform the OUC Mobility Office of a staff’s intention to visit OUC at least two months prior to the start of their mobility.


Interested staff should:

  • Prepare a draft Training Programme mentioning the administrative units or research labs they wish to visit for training at OUC accompanying with a letter explaining their interest to receive training at OUC and submit both to the OUC Mobility Office at
  • Should the University accept the training plan, the OUC Mobility Office will send a confirmation email, as invitation for its implementation.
  • After receiving the required approvals and obtaining an Erasmus+ grant from their home university, they should inform the OUC Mobility Office accordingly to obtain the final approval of the mobility activity and arrange details (arrival and departure dates, meetings, and expected outcomes).


The OUC Mobility Office also organises each year an Erasmus+ International Staff Week. The five-day programme usually includes plenary sessions, round tables, workshops, presentations, and social events. The main objective of the International Staff Week is to bring together staff from partner and non-partner universities, to exchange know-how and expertise, as well as to allow invited staff to gain insights into the working procedures of the Open University of Cyprus, and to exchange experiences and good practices. For more information, please contact the OUC Mobility Office at



 Upon completion of the mobility for training, Open University of Cyprus provides staff with a Certificate of Training that needs to be submitted at their home University.



The minimum period of staff mobility for training is five (5) days minimum (travelling days are excluded) to two (2) months. The home university decides upon the exact mobility duration period.
