Guest Scholars


The EIMAS invites guest scholars to teach courses or give seminars for one (1) or two (2) weeks at one of the three consortium universitites:

  • University of Porto, September – January (1st semester)
  • University of Bayreuth, April – July (2nd semester)
  • Bordeaux Montaigne University, September – December (3rd semester)

Guest scholars are free to suggest a topic but it should be related to the EIMAS curriculum.

They are expected to contribute to the EIMAS by

  • actively participating in the EIMAS programme during their entire stay,
  • bringing added value to the EIMAS programme (through the teaching of specific courses, leading and participating in seminars or workshops, monitoring and tutoring the students' research / project activities),
  • contributing to the promotion and dissemination of the EIMAS programme.



The allowance for guest scholars is € 1,500 per week, including travel and accommodation costs.

A “week” is defined as minimum four (4) out of seven (7) consecutive calendar days.
It is not possible to consider eight (8) consecutive days as two (2) weeks.

A guest scholar paid by other EU funding schemes (including other Erasmus+ actions) cannot be considered eligible.

In order to receive their full payment, visiting scholars must submit a detailed activity report after the end of their stay.
