Additionally, departments are especially interested in hosting international teaching faculty who have the intention to develop future institutionalized co-operation with the UP. Furthermore, if no appropriate local counterpart, i.e. co-professor can be appointed for your course, the UPISU Committee may prefer to select a different course/visiting professor, even though your application material is of high quality.


  • Selected visiting professors will be paid a modest allowance EUR 500 for the whole course;

  • Once you have been selected as a visiting professor, UPISU staff will purchase your ticket as soon as possible in order to contain the expenses made for travel reimbursements (during previous years late bookings resulted in extraordinary high prices for airfare). In case of impossibility of UPISU staff to provide you with tickets, you can purchase your ticket. Any costs that are not reasonably related to travelling to the UPISU directly will not be reimbursed, e.g. unnecessary long stop overs, and subsequently, high hotel costs;
