Students can apply for an Erasmus traineeship grant to complete a voluntary or mandatory traineeship that is part of their studies. The traineeship must be approved by the academic department/school. Erasmus+ traineeships can take place in companies as well as private and public organisations, but not in the EU organisations or organisations that manage EU programmes. Additional information on the Erasmus+ programme is available at UEF International Mobility Services and the Finnish National Agency for Education (EDUFI).
For whom: Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctoral level students of all fields.
When: From the first year of studies.
Where: Students should arrange the traineeship directly with the organisation, which must be established in a country participating in the programme:
EU Member States (not Finland) and Iceland, Liechtenstein, Macedonia, Norway, Serbia and Turkey.
Duration: 2 to 12 months.
Application period: After the start of the application period, applications will be accepted for as long as there are traineeship grants available. Students can apply for a traineeship grant after they have confirmed their traineeship. The application should be submitted in good time (at least one month) before the start of the traineeship. The application is submitted via the online application system SoleMOVE. For more information, see the Applications section.
Funding: The grant is EUR 420/480 per month (academic year 2018-2019) and will be paid for a maximum of 4 months. The precise amount is determined by the duration of the traineeship and the host country. The training position must be full-time. Persons with special needs due to their physical or mental condition and persons with underage children can apply for additional support.
Please note: An Erasmus+ traineeship agreement must be signed before the start of the traineeship. Students cannot receive a traineeship grant from UEF or EDUFI for the same traineeship. The Erasmus+ traineeship grant is the primary form of support used for traineeships in Europe. The students must take an online language test before and after the traineeship.
