Erasmus+ Traineeship

The Erasmus + for Traineeship program allows university students of all levels (first, second, and third cycle of studies) to carry out an internship at:

  • any organization, public or private, of the programme or partner country, which is active in the labor market or in the sectors of education, training, youth, research and innovation. For example, this organization can be: - a public or private enterprise, small, medium or large (including social enterprises); - a public body at local, regional or national level; - embassies or consular offices of the country of the sending institution; - a social partner or other representative of the labour market, including chambers of commerce, artisan / professional associations and trade unions; - a research institute; - a foundation; - a school / institute / educational center (at any level, from kindergarten to upper secondary education, including vocational education and adult education);
  • a non-profit organization, an association, an NGO;
  • a body for career guidance, professional advice and information services;
  • a Higher Education Institution of a Program Country, holder of ECHE, or of a Partner Country, recognized by the competent authorities that have signed inter-institutional agreements with the sending institution before the mobility takes place.

Erasmus + scholarships for Traineeship are awarded for carrying out the following activities at a foreign institution:

  • training and career guidance internships
  • curricular internships
  • research activity (constituting professional training)

Duration of the activity: from 2 to 12 months. For PhD students it is possible to carry out a mobility of reduced duration from 5 to 30 days.

Any student, especially those who are unable to participate in a long period of physical mobility for study or internship, can combine shorter physical mobility with virtual mobility.

For recent graduates: it is necessary to be selected before obtaining the degree and the internship must be completed within 12 months from the date of graduation, and in any case within the deadline set in the call for applications.

Applications must be submitted as described in the Call, complete with all required attachments.

Every year the University opens at least 2 calls: one during the summer time (June/July) and one during the winter time (December/January). 

We recommend students to plan their activity before the call has been published, so as to gather all requested documents in time for the application.
