Teaching Mobility

The internationalization of our teaching faculty and staff is an essential part of ISA Lille’s international strategy. In order to diversify our professors’ expertise and our students’ learning outcomes, we participate in staff and teaching mobility.

Incoming and outgoing staff mobility

ISA Lille offers various opportunities for incoming and outgoing teaching mobility. Faculty exchange is an important part of our international strategy. We encourage our faculty to visit our partner universities through existing cooperation projects (such as Erasmus+) and to diversify their own network through conference participation.

 These mobilities can take place in the framework of our bilateral agreements, France Agro 3 cooperative partnerships, Erasmus+ agreements and projects, and other types of international university partnership agreements.

Staff testimonies

ISA professors take the floor in video to share their experience of Erasmus+ mobility within our partner universities. They went to teach or to carry out research activities in the different parts of the world, they tell you about it!

Due to the ongoing global pandemic, we strongly encourage interested faculty to participate in blended learning and online teaching models.


Visiting professors must be current faculty at one of our partner universities. Please check with your university’s international office to be sure that our exchange agreement includes faculty exchange. 

ISA Lille does not offer remuneration for the exchange period, but does pay for visiting professors’ lodging and meals during their stay. Your home university is expected to cover your travel costs. All mobility periods are eligible for Erasmus+ funding or other staff and teaching mobility grants, to be awarded by your home university. 

Along the same lines, ISA Lille covers the travel costs of ISA faculty who participate in staff or teaching mobility in a partner university, and expects that the partner university will cover our staff’s meals and lodging.

Incoming Teaching Mobility Opportunities

Each year our faculty members invite visiting professors to lecture in the framework of their planned courses. We are also open to other suggestions of topics, so do not hesitate to propose a teaching unit within the relevant area of study. The following subjects are available for the 2020-2020 academic year:
