Both the Erasmus+ and Turing schemes can provide funding to support higher education students to undertake an international work experience placement (or traineeship/internship, whatever you prefer to call it!). Why not travel, improve your language skills, gain work experience, and get paid too!

Placements must be between 1-12 months in duration. Placements can take place over the summer vacation or for up to a year after graduation.

You are responsible for sourcing your own placement. There are plenty of useful websites to help you, for example, Erasmus Intern.  

Where you work and who you work for is up to you. You could work for a private or public company, in a school, for a trade union or in a non-profit organisation.

The funding is provided as a contribution to your costs. The grants are paid at a set rate and vary depending on which country you are working in.
