Erasmus+ Traineeship Abroad

EN Funded by the EU PANTONE

Perspectives through practice abroad

The European Commission supports traineeships abroad within Europe with EUR 530 to EUR 630 per month, depending on the host country.

A full-time internship must last a minimum of two months (maximum 12 months) and must be confirmed by the head of the study programme as a useful supplement to the study programme.

Any company, training and research institution or other organisation within the Erasmus+ programme countries may act as host institution, with the exception of institutions of the European Union and the like.

Your Options

  • Compulsory traineeship: The professional internship is an integral part of the studies and is recognised in the certificate (ECTS).
  • Voluntary traineeship: The internship is primarily completed during the period when no lessons are held and is recognised in the Diploma Supplement.
  • Traineeship for recent graduates: The internship must be completed within 12 months of graduation; applications must be submitted during the course of study. Simultaneous enrollment at a university is not possible during the internship.
  • All students pursuing a degree leading to an academic degree are eligible to participate. Non-regular students from continuing education courses are only admitted if those courses lead to a Master's degree.
  • Excluded are stays in the country in which students usually reside. Mobility to the country of origin is possible in principle, but has the lowest priority.
  • Special grants for students with disabilities, chronic diseases and other disadvantages as well as for students with children are possible.

Erasmus+ Internship Application

The application for Erasmus+ funding for your traineeship abroad should be submitted about 4 weeks before the start of your mobility. Please arrange a meeting with the Erasmus+ Internship Coordinator in the International Office in order to check your eligibility in advance.
