Erasmus activities are carried out with the support of the European Commission within the framework of the Erasmus+ Programme.

Erasmus traineeships are defined as spending a period of time in an enterprise or organisation in another European country, with a view to:

  • acquiring specific competences that are required by the labour market
  • carrying out work experience
  • improving your understanding of the economic and social culture of that country

A traineeship should be relevant to your higher education.
