Please make sure you have read and fully understood these rules before applying for a traineeship.
In many countries university reforms are under way. Therefore it is not possible at present to give a complete list of basic diplomas. Please note that you can only apply once you have been awarded a University level diploma requiring at least 3 years study (see point 2.2 of the rules).
ECTS points are not accepted as degree equivalent.

Important! Motivation and exclusion criteria:
If you have already had a working experience, paid or unpaid, lasting more than six weeks for EU institutions and bodies you are no more eligible for Blue Book traineeships.
If you volunteered for activities supporting the European Union and its institutions (such as EPSO's EU Career Ambassadors , DG Education and Culture's Erasmus Ambassadors , Youth Ambassadors or similar initiatives), please mention this in the 'Motivation' section, not in the 'Professional experience' section!
MESSAGE TO CANDIDATES WHO HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY COMMUNICATION: Thank you for your interest in the Traineeships Programme. Application period for the traineeships session October 2015 will start soon. Best of luck!
