Erasmus+ Traineeship

The traineeship is a training activity that the student can carry out in the countries participating in the Program at higher education institutions holding ECHE (Erasmus Charter for Higher Education) or any public or private organization active in the labor market or in the fields of education , training and youth.



As an example, they are eligible as internships:

  • small, medium or large enterprises, public or private;
  • public bodies at local, regional, national level;
  • organizations of the working world, including chambers of commerce, professional and craft associations and trade unions;
  • foundations;
  • schools / institutes / educational centers of any level;
  • non-profit organizations, associations, NGOs;
  • vocational guidance bodies, professional advice and information services;
  • the International Relations Offices of the Institutes of Higher Education provided that the training activity foreseen during the training period is clearly expressed in the training agreement and is not already co-financed under other Community programs, so as to avoid possible conflicts of interest and / or double funding;
  • other representatives or public institutions such as cultural institutes, schools, etc. provided that the principle of transnationality is guaranteed (eg: the student acquires a different know-how from what he would acquire with a traineeship in his own country), in this case it becomes the responsibility of the student’s institution to verify and evaluate if the required criteria they are satisfied.

Community institutions are not eligible, including the European agencies, the bodies that manage community programs (in order to avoid conflicts of interest and / or double funding), the national diplomatic representations (embassies etc) of the country where the student is registered as well as those of origin / citizenship of the student in the host country.



Mobility for traineeship can also be carried out by new graduates within 12 months of graduation, provided that the student submits an application for the call for applications and is selected when he / she is still enrolled in the last year of the course (also off course).

The traineeships must have a duration between 2 and 12 months.
