Erasmus+ also provides mobility for Placement (Erasmus+ Traineeship), i.e., the possibility of carrying out a training internship abroad at universities, companies, or other organizations. This opportunity has similar characteristics to study mobility, with some slight differences.
Students at the University of Milan enrolled in bachelor's and single-cycle master's degree courses (at least in the first year), master's degree courses, doctorate courses, and postgraduate courses can participate in the Erasmus + Traineeship program. Furthermore, can also participate post-graduate students of all study cycles (provided that they are regularly enrolled when they apply): mobility must take place within 12 months of graduation.
Type of activity (check the Call): training internship abroad at universities, companies, research and training centers, or other types of organizations.
The student receives a financial contribution and the recognition, in terms of educational credits, of the activities carried out during the internship and successfully completed.
Each mobility period, must have a duration between a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 12 months.
How to participate
Traineeship Calls are generally published in two editions with different modalities:
• The first is generally published in summer and allows participants to autonomously identify a place of destination (Call Erasmus+ Traineeship I ed.)
• The second, generally published in the autumn, offers internship places defined on the basis of agreements signed by the University. (Call Erasmus+ Traineeship II ed.)
The public selection of candidates will be carried out by a specially constituted Commission and involves an interview whose evaluation, together with that of the CV, language skills, and academic achievement, will contribute to determining the rankings of candidates for each location.
Also in this case, the monthly amount of the Community contribution is established by the Erasmus+ National Agency, it depends on the cost of living in the destination country as well as on the resources available each year and is higher than that provided for Erasmus+ calls for study.
The community mobility grant can be integrated for students with low-income conditions; the extent and criteria for assigning additional contributions are established annually by the University's Board of Directors.
