Traineeships in a business.
Placements can last from two months, for a traineeship, or three months, for studies or combined study/traineeship, up to a year.
Students can also be selected by their higher education institution during the last year of study to undertake a traineeship abroad within one year of graduation.
Who can take part?
Students studying at bachelor's, master's or doctoral level, or those who are enrolled on a tertiary, short-cycle programme, can take part. Students (of all levels) enrolled in higher education institutions in participating countries may apply.
