Erasmus+ Traineeships are open both to people currently in education and to recent graduates, providing them the opportunity to gain valuable work experience abroad through internships and work placements.

Traineeships are aimed for high school students, university students, VET students and young people in general. Traineeships can be carried out in any organisation relevant for the degree-related learning and personal development needs of each participant, opening up perspectives that ordinary studies may not provide.

Moreover, by doing a traineeship abroad with Erasmus+, students and young people have the chance to improve not only their communication, language and inter-cultural skills, but also several soft skills highly valued by future employers, by making it easier to find a job after the studies.

Erasmus+ traineeships abroad can last from a minimum of 2 months to a maximum of 12 months. Recent graduates have to do the traineeship within one year of the graduation and apply for the scholarship while still being enrolled in their higher education institution.

Participants may receive an Erasmus+ Grant as financial support for travel and subsistence costs. The amount of the scholarship may vary due to many aspects: differences in living costs between the sending and the destination country, the number of students applying for the grant, the distance between countries and the availability of other scholarships.

Application procedures, deadlines and conditions for Erasmus+ Traineeships may be different from one education institution to another: for more information it’s strongly recommended to contact the respective Erasmus+ Coordinator or the International Relations Office.
