Erasmus+ Internship

As part of Erasmus+, the European Commission provides scholarships for degree programme-relevant internships. An internship can last from 60 days to 12 months.

You have the opportunity to complete a internhip in public or private institutions. Thus, both the University of Oldenburg and other companies and social/cultural organisations are eligible for an internship.

There does not have to be a partnership between the universities for an Erasmus+ placement at the University of Oldenburg. You have to organise the placement on your own, please proceed as described above.

For internships outside the University of Oldenburg, your contact person is the company/ organisation offering the internship. They are then responsible for supporting you during your stay.

Your home university will inform you about the application requirements and formalities for financial support.
