ERASMUS+ also promotes internships for students in host institutions in Europe (except EU- institutions or institutions that manage EU-programs and diplomatic missions of countries of origin of the student).

Students can gain work experience in an international environment and improve their key skills such as communication and cooperation skills, openness and understanding for other cultures and markets.


 Funding is available for internships or voluntary internships between three to twelve months.

 The program offers students the following services:

  • Monthly allowance (around 350 euros)
  • EU internship agreement between the university, businesses and students
  • Assistance in the preparation of the stay abroad, while attending a preparatory ERASMUS+ Intensive Language Course in so-called less frequently spoken languages
  • Coaching during the internship by a respective contact person in the home university and the company
  • Recognition of the achievements accomplished abroad

The internship can be completed by students of all disciplines in the 27 EU countries plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Turkey, Croatia and Switzerland.
