Erasmus+ Traineeship

Students on degree programmes at the University of Vienna can organise and undertake a traineeship in another European country and they can apply for an Erasmus+ grant for this.

Provided the traineeship is relevant to their study programme (= a sensible supplement to their studies), students enjoy considerable flexibility in choosing a placement. Recognition of the traineeship in the form of ECTS credits is not a prerequisite.

Do you need an internship agreement or convention de stage for your internship? Please read the information provided here.

Important notice

Applications for the United Kingdom - Update 11.02.2020

The United Kingdom has left the EU on 31 January 2020 and is no longer a member of the European Union. However, the agreement on the withdrawal provides for the UK to participate in the Erasmus+ programme in 2020 (including the 2020 round of applications) without any changes. This implies the following for Erasmus+ traineeships:

  • Applications for traineeships which end by 30.06.2021 can currently be accepted.
  • Applications for traineeships which end after 30.06.2021 are not possible.
