Erasmus traineeship

The Erasmus programme provides grants for traineeships at companies, organisations and universities in Europe. You can also use an Erasmus traineeship grant to finance data collection abroad for a thesis/degree project (at Bachelor’s or Master’s level). Here you can read more about how to apply for a grant and the rules that apply.

To apply for an Erasmus traineeship, you must meet the following conditions

  • You must be a student intending to take a degree at Bachelor’s (first-cycle), Master’s (second-cycle) or doctoral (third-cycle) level at Uppsala University.

  • The organisation at which you carry out the traineeship must be approved. Read more about this in stage 2 of the application guide.
