Erasmus Traineeship

Erasmus+ is an EU-funded programme that is administered by the Swedish Council for Higher Education. Students can receive a traineeship scholarship for a period of 2 to 12 months if they are planning on carrying out their traineeship in another EU or EFTA country.

The aim of the traineeship is to better equip students for a European labour market, hence, increasing their chances of receiving employment. It is a remarkable opportunity to utilize the theoretical skills you have acquired, but also to gather new experience that is valuable for when you later seek employment.

The Swedish Council for Higher Education defines the Erasmus Traineeship as follows: Spending a period of time in an enterprise or organisation in another Member State, supported as appropriate by preparatory or refresher courses in the host language or working language, with a view to helping individuals to adapt to the requirements of the Community-wide labour market, to acquiring a specific skill and to improving understanding of the economic and social culture of the country concerned in the context of acquiring work experience.
