With effect from 2019, it is possible to take Erasmus+ traineeships even after graduating from AMU.
It is necessary to apply for this at least two months before the graduation, so that it is possible to arrange the stay and sign the required documents with the target institution while the applicant is still an AMU student. This does not mean that the graduate must leave immediately after completing their studies.
The future graduate must be registered in an accredited bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral programme at the time of submitting an application for a traineeship. The traineeship must be related to their field of study. All paperwork must be completed prior to the future graduate’s graduation exams.
‘Future graduate’ means a student in their final year of a bachelor’s or master’s programme who does not wish to continue with a post-bachelor or doctoral programme following their state final examination, and thus can leave for a traineeship abroad as a graduate. ‘Future graduate’ also means a doctoral student who can leave for a traineeship as a graduate having completed their studies.
The period of the traineeship is the time after graduation (which means that the trainee no longer has the status of a student when leaving and leaves as a graduate). The traineeship trip must be completed within 12 months of a graduate’s final exams at the latest.
A graduate’s traineeship may take from 2 months (minimum) to 12 months (maximum). This includes all the months of stays undertaken as part of the Erasmus programme within the study cycle preceding the graduate traineeship. So, if a student studied/was on a traineeship under Erasmus for 5 months during the study cycle preceding the graduate traineeship, as a graduate they may leave for a traineeship for a maximum of 7 months. Out of that, 3–4 months may be supported with an Erasmus+ scholarship.
You can take an internship in the EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway.
This can be a full-time or part-time job based on a working plan agreed in advance.
A graduate will receive a scholarship through the European Development Agency.
The scholarship is provided as a flat-rate amount per month of stay abroad; the amount of the scholarship depends on the target country (as it does with ERASMUS stays).
The scholarship does not necessarily have to cover all costs of staying abroad; it is just a contribution. The scholarship is provided for approximately 3–4 months of the stay.
The future graduate finds an institution, and if necessary, asks an European Development Agency coordinator for advice on where to go on an internship with content matching their field of study. The future graduate shall specify the information about such identified organisation in the relevant documents as part of the required paperwork.
Traineeship applications in the school round must be submitted at least two months prior to the state final examination. The application must be sent to the EDA: Kateřina Kolingerová – firstname.lastname@example.org. Subsequently, the future graduate shall liaise with an EDA mobility coordinator with regard to all future paperwork.
