Would you like to live and work abroad for a while? Would you like to gain work experience that is relevant to your education? If so, an Erasmus+ traineeship might be just the thing for you!


What is Erasmus+ traineeship?

Erasmus+ supports traineeships (work placements, internships, etc) abroad for students currently enrolled in higher education institutions in Programme countries at Bachelor and Master level as well as for doctoral candidates. Erasmus+ is an exchange programme that gives you the chance to go on a placement at a company or organisation in another European country. You receive a grant for a traineeship of two to twelve months. 

Different ways to take part in an Erasmus+ traineeship: 

1. Within the framework of an internship course/thesis at Mid Sweden University
You are registered at Mid Sweden University and will be examined here but you conduct the internship/data collection at a university, organisation or company in Europe.

2. As a voluntary internship outside your regular study programme at Mid Sweden University:
This alternative is a non-credit internship and the department needs to approve the internship and confirm its academic connection. You will not get credit for this type of internship but you can ask the Degree Office at Miun to include it in your Diploma Supplement.

3. Recent Graduate: You can also go for a traineeship abroad as a recent graduate.
In this case, your traineeship must occur within one year of your graduation and you must apply while still being enrolled as a fulltime student at Mid Sweden University. You must complete the intership period within a 12 month period when you completed your studies. Example: Student graduates on 7 June 2020 (date on diploma) -> applies for an Erasmus traineeship grant before this date -> completes and finalises the internship period before 7 June 2021.
