A traineeship abroad in the course of the EU programme Erasmus+ facilitates international and intercultural work experience as well as the acquisition of foreign language skills and additional qualifications.
Students of ABPU can apply for support from the Erasmus+ programme for planned internship stays in EU member states (except Austria as sending country), as well as Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Northern Macedonia, Turkey and Serbia. An internship abroad can be completed at universities, educational or research institutions relevant to studies, cultural institutions or companies (theatre, opera, dance company, television and radio stations, etc.). However, institutions, bodies and agencies of the European Union, as well as diplomatic representations are excluded in order to avoid conflicts of interest and double funding.
At our institution, we promote two different types of traineeships: Voluntary and Graduate. A traineeship can be applied for from the first year of study for a duration of two to twelve months. Students can do both Erasmus Study Mobilities (SMS) and Erasmus Traineeship Mobilities (SMT) within one study cycle, provided that the total duration does not exceed 12 months.
The traineeship place must be sought on the student's own responsibility.
In some cases, suitable advertisements are posted on internship databases:
