Erasmus Traineeship – Outgoing Opportunities

The Erasmus+ programme provides you with the opportunity to carry out a traineeship abroad at a company, a research or training centre, or another organization.

Traineeship activities will be agreed with the department's Erasmus Coordinators and set out in your Learning Agreement for Traineeship.

Undergraduate and postgraduate traineeships have a minimum duration of 2 months and a maximum duration of 12 months; PhD student traineeships may last 5 to 30 days or 2 to 12 months.

Traineeships can be carried out in blended mode, i.e. combining physical and virtual mobility.

Selected students will be awarded a scholarship whose amount is set annually by the Erasmus Agency (between € 500, for countries with a high cost of living, and € 400 for those with a medium/low cost of living).

Who can apply
  • All undergraduate, postgraduate or PhD students (you can apply as early as the first year). The traineeship must be completed before discussing the degree thesis.
  • Those who have completed their degree or PhD programme, provided that they are enrolled at the time of application and that the traineeship is carried out within 12 months from graduation.
How to take part in the programme

Calls for applications are usually published twice a year and offer different traineeship opportunities. Applicants to the Summer call may identify a destination campus autonomously, whereas the Fall call offers traineeships based on the agreements signed by the University of Milan.

Applications must be submitted online through the Elixform platform, as noted in the call, along with the required attachments.

The page will be updated soon with the new 21/22 Call for applications (2nd edition). Meanwhile, students may refer to this page.
