Erasmus+ Mobility Grants with Alianza 4 Universidades (A4U), Spain



Alliance 4 Universities continues to fund academic mobility with Indonesian universities Alianza 4 Universidades (A4U) has secured more Erasmus+ funding for exchange of 4 staff and doctoral students with Indonesian partner universities in 2023-2024 academic year.

These funds will help continue student and staff exchange between 4 universities members of A4U (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid and Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona) and 7 Indonesian partner universities: Universitas Indonesia, Institute of Technology of Bandung, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Universitas Airlangga, BINUS University, Telkom University, and Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta.

Since 2018 A4U has been able to fund the exchange of 54 Indonesian and Spanish staff and students, and 6 more are being planned for the next two academic year thanks to the new funding. PhD students, teaching and administrative staff from all subject areas from Indonesian partner universities and A4U universities can apply. Erasmus+ provides a fixed allowance for travel and living expenses from 2 to 5 months for students, and for 7 days for staff.

It should be noted that candidates from disadvantaged backgrounds are welcome to apply. One top-up grant for a participant with special needs or disabilities is available. As a result of the exchange, students improve their language and intercultural skills, increase their confidence and gain international experience that counts towards their qualification. A research stay abroad can help doctoral students jumpstart their career. Staff also benefit from exchange as they share best practice and have a chance to have a first-hand experience of a different educational system. Through Erasmus+ programme participating universities have opportunities to forge cooperation in teaching and research, attract talent and increase the number of international students and staff, which in turn contribute to their diversity and internationalisation.
