Erasmus+ supports traineeships (work placements, internships, etc.) abroad for students enrolled in higher education institutions. The traineeship has to be approved as a part of your degree, and it has to be in an EU-programme country. You can receive an Erasmus+ grant in addition to your support from Lånekassen.
Your traineeship abroad can last from a minimum of 2 months (60 days) 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.
Traineeship at EU-institutions or at a National Agencies for EU-programmes are not eligible for an Erasmus+ grant.
You will have to:
Sign a Learning Agreement for Erasmus+ Traineeships. This has to be signed by you, your faculty and the organization where you will do your traineeship before it starts. This agreement will function as your application for a grant and should be sent to email@example.com. You will receive an answer to your application within 2 weeks.
€ 610 a month to Denmark, Finland, Rep of Ireland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg and Sweden.
€ 560 a month to other programme countries.
Erasmus+ traineeship for recent graduates
Depending on the available funding, UiA will have 3-5 Erasmus+ grants for recent graduates, meaning the first year after you have finished your degree.
If you get an offer for a traineeship, you must apply for a grant before June 1. You must still be enrolled as a student when applying for this grant. You can look for traineeships at www.erasmusintern.org or Kompetansetorget. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for questions.
Insurance for students doing a traineeship:
The Erasmus+ programme requires that all students are properly insured.
The scope of insurance coverage for Erasmus-Plus programs has been defined and laid down by the European Union. It involves mandatory health insurance with a fixed scope of coverage, a professional liability insurance as well as an accident insurance which includes the workfloor. A private liability insurance is strongly recommended. You are responsible for purchasing a personal insurance covering these requirements.
For questions related to subjects and approval, please contact your faculty.
For questions related to scholarships, language tests and other practical tasks, contact email@example.com. You will receive a reply from Terje Thorsdalen or Sissel Gjennestad.
