A traineeship abroad as part of the EU programme „Erasmus+“ provides the opportunity to acquire international and intercultural work experience as well as to improve foreign language skills and gain additional qualifications.
Host organisations for student placements may be enterprises, training centres, research centres and other organisations. Excluded are diplomatic representations (embassies and consulates) of the student’s home country and European Union institutions such as the European Parliament. An internship of minimum two and up to twelve months can already be applied for after completion of the first year of study.
Erasmus traineeships are carried out on the basis of a traineeship contract, the so-called Training Agreement. This agreement is made between the student, the sendng institution (= ABPU) and the receiving organisation and must be recognized by the home higher education institution.
Every student can spend up to 12 months within one study cycle abroad with the financial assistance of the EU!
