Incoming Staff for Teaching

UnitelmaSapienza welcomes Incoming teaching staff members from Higher Education Institutions (HEI) in the framework of the Erasmus+ programme. The HEI, where the Incoming teaching staff members work, must have signed an Inter-institutional Agreement (IIA) with UnitelmaSapienza, and, only in the case of Programme countries, must hold the Erasmus+ Charter for Higher Education.

To spend an Erasmus mobility for teaching at UnitelmaSapienza, the main steps are as follows:

  • STEP 1: Incoming teaching staff member is invited to submit a formal request to the Erasmus and International Mobility Commission by email ( before his/her arrival to UnitelmaSapienza.
  • STEP 2: The Erasmus and International Mobility Commission verifies if the University is a Partner of UnitelmaSapienza, otherwise an Inter-Institutional Agreement must be previously established.
  • STEP 3: Incoming teaching staff member must send a Mobility Agreement for Teaching, providing all the requested information (teaching period: date of arrival and departure, overall objectives of the mobility, added value of the mobility, content of the teaching programme, expected outcomes and impact, etc.) to the Erasmus and International Mobility Commission.
  • STEP 4: Before the arrival in Rome, Incoming teaching staff member must provide a brief biography of about 100 words containing position, affiliation, main teaching courses, research interests, and a picture to be published on the Visiting Professor web page.

According to the Erasmus+ Programme rules, a teaching period must last a minimum of 2 days and a maximum of 2 months (excluding travelling time). The teaching activity must comprise a minimum of 8 hours per week (or any shorter period of stay) of actual teaching time.

As UnitelmaSapienza is a Distance Learning University, Incoming teaching staff member have to give a short online course of a minimum of 8 lectures, of 30 minutes each, per week (or any shorter period of stay), which correspond to the 8 hours teaching activity in presence. The lectures will be recorded and uploaded on UnitelmaSapienza e-learning platform and will be available to students in an open access format. The topic of the course and of each lecture will be proposed to the Erasmus and International Mobility Commission by the Incoming teaching staff member according to his/her research and scientific interests and taking into account that it will be addressed to students enrolled in Law and Economics degree courses.
