Why do you should consider the Erasmus+ Traineeship Program?
Erasmus+ helps participants to gain valuable experience in the workplace by supporting traineeships abroad. Erasmus+ Traineeship is available for higher education students (Bachelor and Master level and Doctoral candidates) and recent graduates, as well as vocational education and training students, apprentices and recent graduates.
By doing a traineeship abroad with Erasmus+, participants can improve not only their communication, language, and inter-cultural skills but also soft skills highly valued by future employers, as well as become more entrepreneurial. This program aims to help them gain the necessary skills for a more comfortable transition from education to business life.
Traineeships not only aim to allow participants to get work experience, but also aim to bring new perspectives to the lives of the students who apply to the program by living in different cultures as well.
Participants must respect the rules, cultures, and people of the country they are going to under the Erasmus+ Traineeship program.
Making a good impression on the companies or institutions you have agreed to work with and taking care to successfully meet the expectations of the institution during your working period will make you and our university proud.
Whatever their job description is to gain experience during Erasmus+ internship mobility, participants’ goals should not be just to work. Do not forget to visit the important cultural places of the city, meet new people, and even explore gastronomy in your free days when you can spare time for yourself.
