Erasmus+ Student Mobility for Traineeships (SMT)

Students must look for a suitable position on their own. The International Office cannot arrange traineeships.


  • Traineeships abroad for students who are currently enrolled in higher education institutions in programme countries for a Bachelor, Master or PhD programme or recent University graduates (traineeship must be completed within 12 months of graduation).
  • The traineeship must be relevant for your studies or personal development and should preferably be integrated into your study programme.
  • The traineeship can be completed in any organisation in an Erasmus + programme country (except for EU institutions).



  • Your traineeship abroad can last from a minimum of 2 months to a maximum of 12 months. Your total time abroad (study abroad periods included) may not exceed 12 months within one cycle of study.)
  • If you have already completed a student exchange abroad with Erasmus+, the traineeship in the same study cycle is shortened by the months of the student exchange.
