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.
