Erasmus Professors – STA Mobility
This document is addressed to incoming professors selected for didactic mobility under the Erasmus Plus Programme, within Bilateral Erasmus Agreements, signed between their institution and the University of Catania.
Such mobility will not be financed by the University of Catania and it can take place from 1st October and 31st July every academic year (in August and September there is no provision of didactic activities).
The professor granted by her/his home institution has to contact the colleague responsible for the Erasmus Agreement at UNICT, in order to get the Invitation Letter signed by the Erasmus Dept. Coordinator. This Invitation Letter must include dates, number of hours and topic of teaching activity to be provided, and has to be uploaded while filling in the application form online. The International Mobility Office (IMO) of the University of Catania, once received the application, will send an official Acceptance letter, by e-mail, to the applicant Professor. This letter will be signed by the Erasmus Institutional Coordinator and, upon his absence, by IMO Coordinator. Any additional document, required by the sending university, has to be sent after the acceptation by email
Once in Catania, the incoming professor will perform the scheduled teaching activity, coordinated by the referring professor in Catania. At the end of the teaching period, the referring professor in Catania will fill in a Teaching Activity Report and will send it to IMO, by e-mail, attaching any supporting documentation and in time to allow IMO to process departure files.
Teaching activities certification
At the end of the mobility, IMO will receive the incoming professor in order to provide the teaching activity certification. Final Certificate will be issued on Italian Erasmus Plus Agency form or on a form provided by the sending institution, and will be signed by the Erasmus Institutional Coordinator or, upon his absence, by IMO Coordinator.
