Student mobility for placements enables students at higher education institutions to spend a placement (traineeship/internship) period between 3 months and 12 months in an enterprise or organization in another participating country.

What are the objectives of student placements?

· to help students to adapt to the requirements of the EU-wide labor market;

· to enable students to develop specific skill including language skills and to improve understanding of the economic and social culture of the country concerned in the context of acquiring work experience;

· to promote cooperation between higher education institutions and enterprises;

· to contribute to the development of a pool of well-qualified, open-minded and internationally experienced young people as future professionals.

Who can benefit?

·  Students registered at a higher education institution holding an Extended Erasmus University Charter

·   Enterprises, training centers, research centers and other organizations.

For how long can students go abroad?

Students can do a placement between 3 and 12 months or at least two months for students in short-cycle higher vocational education.

What are the preconditions?

ERASMUS students are selected by their home higher education institution in a fair and transparent way.

Where do placements take place?

·  Host organizations for student placements may be enterprises, training centers, research centers and other organizations.

·  The excluded are European Union institutions and EU bodies including specialized agencies, organizations managing EU program (in order to avoid possible conflict of interests and / or double funding) and national diplomatic representations (embassy and consulate) of the home country of the student.

Prior to their departure, students are provided with:

·   A placement agreement (grant agreement) covering the mobility period and signed between the student and his or her home higher education institution.

At the end of the period abroad:

·  In the particular case of a period of placement that is not part of the curriculum of the student, the sending institution shall provide recognition at least by recording this period in the Diploma Supplement or, if not possible, in the student's transcript of records. In addition, the use of Euro-pass mobility documents is encouraged.

Will financial support be provided?

·   Students may be awarded an ERASMUS grant to help cover the travel and subsistence costs (including insurance and visa costs) incurred in connection with their placement period abroad.

·   Students may get a financial contribution or a contribution in kind by the host enterprise/organization.
