The Erasmus+ Traineeship scheme is a programme funded by the European Commission.
How to arrange an Erasmus+ traineeship
Erasmus+ traineeship/interships must be arranged directly between the student and his/her home institution, and the department where the student wish to be placed at the University of Bergen.
Applicants must therefore inquiry at their home institution, if they are eligible for a traineeship period abroad. The traineeship period must be recognised/included towards the student degree in home institution.
A traineeship period in the Erasmus+ programme must last between 2 and 12 months. A traineeship period for less than 2 months will not be registered.
For more information: European Commission - Traineeship Student
The maximum period for a non-degree short term student status at UIB (trainee/exchange students ), is limited to maximum one academic year (two semester). This applies regardless of whether there were two non-contiguous periods.
Erasmus+ traineeship students are not given housing guarantee.
You must apply for administrative admission by forwarding the completely filled out and signed Learning agreement to the receiving department at the University of Bergen.
An application cannot be made retrospectively or after the traineeship has started.
