Erasmus+ for Traineeship
Erasmus+ supports traineeships (work placements, internships) abroad at any workplace for students currently enrolled in higher education institutions in Programme Countries at short-cycle Bachelor and Master levels and for doctoral candidates.
These opportunities are also open to recent graduates.
You can greatly improve the knowledge, skills, and competencies employers seek by doing a traineeship abroad. Also, one in ten Erasmus+ trainees has created their own company!
Traineeships abroad can receive Erasmus+ support from 2 to 12 months.
Students and recent graduates can also do blended mobility, combining a short physical stay abroad (between 5 and 30 days) with a virtual period.
Traineeship at Sapienza
Incoming Trainee students contact the teachers directly to ask for availability to be welcomed into the structure, usually for two to three months.
The teacher who accepts the mobility student must agree on a project that can be implemented within the expected duration, considering any prerequisites and knowledge necessary for carrying out the activities.
Once a tutor has been identified, the student will complete the Learning Agreement for Traineeship (LAT) requesting the signature of the tutor teacher, who undertakes to follow him in carrying out the activities.
Traineeship in Europe
The outgoing Erasmus+ Traineeship mobility includes an annual call in which students on Bachelor's, Master's, and PhD Programmes at all faculties can participate.
Applications will be evaluated considering the career and academic merit and the motivation for choosing locations.
The announcement requires a formal letter of acceptance from the partner, for which students are encouraged to start the selection and request documentation well in advance.
The application requires that the student is regularly enrolled at Sapienza, and the mobility can be carried out before or after obtaining the degree.
Once the selection has been made, the student must complete the Learning Agreement for Traineeship (LAT), acquire the relevant RAM's signature, and send it to the partner institution.
There are different types of Erasmus internships:
- Curricular Internship
- Extra-curricular internship
- Post-graduate internship
