Why the Consortium? Why host an Erasmus trainee?

  • After thorough and comprehensive assessment of foreign language skills and GPA, each applicant to Erasmus Student Mobility for Placement is selected by the Consortium and the University they attend.
  • Organisations interested in hosting trainees will be provided with a list of selected candidates including their key competencies and skills so as to be able to select the most suitable candidates.
  • Before the mobility, selected candidates will attend the Consortium’s orientation program which will help them adapt to a new work environment.
  • Before the mobility, all trainees shall have adequate insurance policy to cover any damages they may cause to the host organisation.
  • Traineeship shall last from a minimum of 2 months to a maximum of 12 months.
  • Host organisations are not expected to provide logistical support to students concerning visa arrangements; however, they shall provide the student with a letter of acceptance.
  • Although typically host organisations are not expected to provide financial support to trainees, small amounts of contributions would be very helpful.
  • Students carrying out traineeship/internship as part of the Erasmus Programme are exempt from the obligation to obtain a work permit in a number of Erasmus Programme countries.
  • The Consortium may provide support to students for finding accommodation even though it is essentially students’ responsibility to find their own accommodation.
  • Host organisations are expected to sign the Learning Agreement governing the scope and schedule of the traineeship/internship, and its prospective outcomes for the student. Detailed information on how to complete the Consortium Agreement will be provided to the host organisations.
