Sourcing a traineeship

We have suggested some websites below for you to begin your traineeship search.  When considering potential opportunities, please bear in mind the funding criteria.

We also recommend visiting the University‚Äôs Careers Service. Our Careers Advisers can give support and advice with your CV, covering letter and interview skills.  You can also make use of the European resources and Career Connect on their website. 

Apply now

The application for Erasmus+ funding for traineeships in 2019/20 took place in March 2019 and has now closed.

What happens next?

Offer Letter

You will be notified of the outcome of your funding application in due course and successful students will receive an award offer letter.  The offer letter needs to be signed and returned by the stated deadline in order to confirm your funding.

If you have applied for funding speculatively then this funding award will be conditional, subject to you securing a traineeship which meets the eligibility criteria.  You should inform the Erasmus Team if any details of your traineeship change e.g. duration, host organisation. 

Pre-Departure Meeting

All students holding a funding award must attend a mandatory Pre-Departure Briefing.  These are held in April and December and you will be notified which Briefing you are expected to attend, depending on when your traineeship takes place.

Erasmus+ Paperwork

All paperwork related to your traineeship will be issued to you by the Erasmus Team in advance of your start date, with full instructions given for completion.
