This activity allows HEI teaching staff or staff from enterprises to teach at a partner HEI abroad. Staff mobility for teaching can be in any subject area/academic discipline.

Duration of the activity: From minimum 5 days from and for partner countries to maximum 2 months, excluding travel time.

A teaching activity has to comprise a minimum of 8 hours of teaching per week (or any shorter period of stay but not less than 5 days). If the mobility lasts longer than one week, the minimum number of teaching hours for an incomplete week should be proportional to the duration of that week.

Eligible period for teaching mobility at VEVU: during winter and summer semester.

Take into account the Academic Calendar of the VEVU.



This activity supports the professional development of HEI teaching and non-teaching staff in the form of training events abroad (excluding conferences) and job shadowing/observation periods/training at a partner HEI, or at another relevant organisation abroad.

Training programming could be built around the transfer of knowledge and good practice, learning from shared experience, the acquiring of new practical skills and discovery of new ideas for teaching and learning methods.

Mobility exchange is NOT possible during the summer and winter break.

Please check also the list of Croatian national bank holidays.



Staff selected for financial support

Individual financial support for Key Action 1: Staff mobility – International Credit Mobility between Programme and Partner Countries (KA107)



Each selected staff member will sign an individual grant agreement regulating the payment of the financial support towards the grant holder prior to arrival.

Mobility staff member receives the financial support in full (100%) – paid to the bank account at a Croatian bank, opened upon arrival to Croatia (requirement of the EU Commission – transfers outside European Union are not allowed).

The submission of the online EU survey after the mobility is considered obligatory to all mobile participating staff.



During your stay in Croatia, as an international staff member, you must have health insurance.

Non-EU countries with health care agreements with Croatia: If there is a signed bilateral health care agreement between your home country and Croatia, ask for the bilingual form (tiskanica) to be filled in and stamped by your health insurance company. The form should then be presented at the Croatian Health Insurance Company (Hrvatski zavod za zdravstveno osiguranje,, which will issue a health insurance document valid in Croatia (bolesnički list). Croatia has entered into agreements on social security with the following non-EU countries participating in CEEPUS: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia.

The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC): International staff who have the European Health Insurance Card may use health care services upon presentation of the card and submission of the printout copy of the card, if other instructions are not given according to the Croatian legislation in force.

Countries without health care agreements with Croatia and without the European Health Insurance Card: Teachers from the countries that do not have bilateral health care agreements with Croatia or that do not use the European Health Insurance Card are obliged to organise and cover the costs of health care services by themselves. Any health insurance expenses from these countries are not covered by the grant.

Insurance coverage is mandatory.

Basic coverage might be provided by the national health insurance of the participant. However, the coverage may not be sufficient, especially in case of repatriation and specific medical intervention. In that case, a complementary private insurance might be useful. It is the responsibility of the participant (staff) to ensure the mandatory health insurance at their own expenses.
