Erasmus+ Traineeships for Recent Graduates
What is it?
Erasmus+ Traineeships for Recent Graduates enable individuals who recently earned a bachelor's or master's degree from UIC Barcelona to gain practical work experience in another country in Europe. Unlike curricular traineeships, this practical work experience will not earn you ECTS recognition.
For how long?
From 2 to 12 months, depending on your area of study. Ask the academic coordinator at your faculty or the International Relations Service for more details.
Is it funded?
Yes. Erasmus+ Traineeships provide funding for a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 3 months. The amount per month will depend on the chosen target country. Check out the Erasmus+ Traineeship funding chart per country.
Why should I participate?
It has been proven that students who participate in international mobility programmes are more and better prepared to face the current and future global world. Adecco, Primer Empleo, Universia.es, El Mundo and Finanzas.es, among others, highlight the importance of international experience for comprehensive personal and professional development.
