Instructions for use.
What is it?
Erasmus+ for traineeship purposes is an opportunity for students and graduates to undertake a period of traineeship at universities, public or private enterprises, and training or research centers, in one of the mobility program's participating states. The Erasmus+ traineeship provides a grant to successful students and graduates to help them make the most of the experience.
You can enroll in the program if:
- you are regularly enrolled in UniGe
- you are enrolled in individual educational activities aimed at admission to master's degree programs (so-called bridging career)
- you meet the access prerequisites established by the foreign location and individual teaching facilities of UniGe at the time of application submission
You can also participate if you are a recent UniGe graduate, but in this case you must have applied before you graduated and you must carry out the mobility within 12 months from the date of graduation.
Your Erasmus can last from 2 to 12 months.
Have you been on Erasmus before?
As a UniGe student, you have the opportunity to carry out one or more Erasmus+ mobilities.
The period comprehensive reserved for mobility is different depending on the course of study you are enrolled in:
- Cycle I - Bachelor's degree: maximum 12 months (360 days)
- cycle II - bachelor's/master's degree, master's degree: maximum 12 months (360 days)
- single-cycle master's degree: maximum 24 months (720 days)
- cycle III - PhD, postgraduate course, 2nd level master's degree: maximum 12 months (360 days)
Before applying, you should therefore check that the remaining period still available to you for further Erasmus+ mobility is at least 60 days.
For example, if in the same bachelor's degree program you have already done one Erasmus mobility for the purpose of study for 5 months and one for the purpose of internship for 5 months (for a total of 10 months), you will be able to apply and do a maximum period of 2 months abroad, regardless of the duration of the grant provided by the announcement.
