Erasmus for traineeship

Through the Erasmus + Traineeship Program you have the opportunity to access internships in companies, training and research centres present in one of the countries participating in the Programme. European institutions or organizations managing European programmes are excluded. For the internship period, a European grant is offered; you have the opportunity to acquire specific skills and a better understanding of the socio-economic culture of the host country, with the support of preparation or refresher courses in the language of the host country (or working language).

Also in this case, each year a Call is published which refers to the following academic year. To apply, it is preferable that you already have an internship project, approved by a teacher of your course

Before departure, you must have a work programme (Learning Agreement for Traineeship) signed by you, the University and the host organisation. The internship period must be covered by an internship contract signed by you and the University.

Specific grants are provided for Erasmus students with disabilities.

The internship must have a minimum duration of 2 months and cannot exceed 6 months. Activities lasting less than 2 months or longer than 6 are neither eligible, nor fundable. The internship must be carried out continuously.

At the end of the period, the University guarantees you full recognition of the activities indicated in the Learning Agreement for Traineeship and successfully completed. To access this programme, it is necessary to be enrolled in a degree course at our University. Consequently, recent graduates, doctoral students, or students enrolled in single module courses are not eligible.
