An internship after graduation
The Erasmus+ programme also offers the option of doing an internship abroad after your graduation, for a maximum of 1 year. This is a great step towards an international career because it allows you to gain international work experience, and since you have graduated, maybe it will turn into a real first job!
- Apply for this grant in your last year of study, before you graduate!
- The internship should be for a minimum of two and a maximum of twelve months (depending on the start date as it should take place within a year after graduation).
- The internship must take place within the EU/EEA area.
- The internship must be full time, meaning at least 35 hours per week.
- If you have already received an Erasmus grant before then you can receive this grant for a period of twelve months minus the number of months you have previously already received a grant for.
