Erasmus+ for work

The Erasmus+ mobility scheme is designed to help you fund work experience of two months or longer in the European Economic Area (EEA) - see below for a full list of countries. The funding is available to help cover some of the costs of a traineeship in Europe while you're studying at BU. The Erasmus+ programme will end on 31 May 2023, so the latest possible date that you could start work and still receive funding is 1 April 2023.

Important information about traineeships in Europe

Please be aware that some European companies and/or internship agencies will insist on obtaining a contract signed by the student, BU and the company. Please note that we will not sign any contract other than the Erasmus+ Traineeship agreement. As the Erasmus+ programme is well known throughout Europe so this shouldn’t pose a problem, but you may need to explain our terms to your potential employer.
