Are you keen to gain work experience in an academic setting? Would you like to do something worthwhile with your summer and develop skills while exploring somewhere new?  If so, consider applying for a funded Erasmus+ Traineeship somewhere in Europe.

This programme provides grants to eligible students interested in undertaking a placement in order to gain valuable experience for your CV and expand your network. Students in any year of study can apply for grants worth €350-400 EUR per month. The experience must last for a minimum of 2 months. Eligible host institutions include other Higher Education Institutions and public/private organisations based in an Erasmus+ programme country. The deadline for applying for Erasmus+ funding is 4 weeks before the start of the placement.
