Collegium Civitas supports traineeships (work placements, internships, etc) abroad within Erasmus+ programme for students at Bachelor and Master level. These opportunities are also open to recent graduates.
- By doing a traineeship abroad with Erasmus+, you can improve not only your communication, language and inter-cultural skills, but also soft skills highly valued by future employers, as well as become more entrepreneurial.
- Your traineeship abroad can last from a minimum of 2 months to a maximum of 12 months.
- You can benefit of an exchange abroad with Erasmus+ multiple times, either as a student or as a trainee, but your total time abroad (study abroad periods included) may not exceed 12 months within one cycle of study.
- 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 in your higher education institution.
- Your traineeship must be relevant for your degree-related learning and personal development needs and, wherever possible, be integrated in your study programme.
- You may carry out a traineeship at any organisation in an Erasmus+ Programme Country (with the exception of EU institutions, bodies and agencies).
- You may receive an Erasmus+ grant as a contribution to your travel and subsistence costs and extra funding is available for traineeships. It may vary according to differences in living costs between your country and the destination country.
