Staff exchange

Volda University College takes active part in the Erasmus+ programme and welcomes staff and faculty from our partner universities for mobility stays.

If you are a staff or faculty member at one of our partner universities abroad, you may contact the International Office to find out if it is possible to visit VUC on Erasmus+ staff/teaching mobility.

It is also possible for representatives from the industry (businesses, companies, organizations) in Europe to guest lecture at VUC with an Erasmus+ grant. In such cases, the industry representative must be specially invited by course leaders at VUC and be employed at a sending organisation which does not have Erasmus+ funds of its own.

Since VUC is a relatively small university college, it is difficult for us to accommodate visitors at any time. We therefore encourage guests to visit us during special occasions, such as for example our International Week which is held annually in the first week of February.
