Student mobility for traineeships

One new aspect under Erasmus+ is the possibility to take part in a traineeship after graduation in European countries participating in Erasmus+. This could be interesting to graduates who wish to expand their international experience and/or strengthen their CVs.
The following points for attention are applicable:
  • The duration of the traineeships must be between 2 and 12 months.
  • The receiving organization can be a any public or private organization active in the labour market. For example, such organizations can be a public or private, a small, medium or large enterprise, or a public body at local, regional or national level.
  • Application forms must be submitted, before graduation, to Gerrit Hemink. Bear in mind that the application process can take a lot of time.
  • The university determines which students are eligible for a grant.
  • The university must fully accredit the traineeship period spent abroad.
  • Applications must be described in detail, including assignment, supervisors, duration.
  • The level of the grants under Erasmus+ is related to the cost of living in the receiving countries. The payments for traineeships vary from 250 EUR to 350 EUR per month.
  • A traineeship abroad is full-time.
  • A grant from Erasmus+ is possible in every phase of a course. This means that you can spend a maximum of 12 months abroad on a study or traineeship grant from Erasmus+ during your Bachelors, Masters and Ph.D. Any mobility periods under Erasmus LLP (Life Long Learning Program) are taken into account.
  • A traineeship in the context of Erasmus+ is at the moment possible in all 28 EU member states. Switzerland is not included in the program.
  • Nyenrode Career Services mediates in the acquisition of traineeship places. For more information, contact Willem van Donge, Head of Career Services.
  • The grants of Erasmus+ for traineeships can be provided separately from any payments from companies providing traineeships.
