Student Placement

GENERAL INFORMATION FOR OUTGOING STUDENTS

This action enables students at higher education institutions to spend a placement period between 3 months and 12 months in an enterprise or organization in another participating
country.
The objectives of student mobility for placements are:
• To help students to adapt to the requirements of the EU-wide labor market;
• To enable students to develop specific skill including language skills and to improve understanding of the economic and social culture of the country concerned in the context of
acquiring work experience;
• To promote cooperation between HEI and enterprises;
• To contribute to the development of a pool of well-qualified, open-minded and
internationally experienced young people as future professionals. Student ‘placement’ is an alternative term to the widely used term ‘trainee ship’ or ‘internship’.
Host organizations for student placements may be enterprises, training centers, research centers and other organizations.Erasmus students are selected by their home HEI in a fair and transparent way. Prior to their departure, students sign a placement agreement which includes the following
documents:
• A “Training Agreement” regarding its specific program for the placement period; this
agreement must be endorsed by the home higher education institution and the host
organization;
• A “Quality Commitment” setting out the right and obligations of all the parties specifically
for placements abroad.
• The “Erasmus Student Charter” setting out the student’s rights and obligations with respect to his/her mobility period abroad.At the end of the period abroad, full recognition must be given by the home higher education institution for the period spent abroad as agreed in the Training Agreement. Students may be awarded an Erasmus grant to help cover the travel and subsistence costs (including insurance and visa costs) incurred in connection with their placement period abroad.
The payment of any national grant or loan to outgoing students should be maintained during the Erasmus placement period abroad. An Erasmus student may follow, if offered, an Erasmus Intensive Language Course in the host language before the placement period, for which a grant may also be awarded. For more information, see the specific information on Erasmus Intensive Language Courses. Students with special needs may apply for a specific grant after they had been selected for a mobility period.
