General conditions for participation

Students who have just graduated can also take part in an internship within 12 months of graduation (in which case they must submit an application before obtaining a diploma and, in the case of a successful application, conclude a grant agreement as an active student).

The teaching assistant mobility activity is also considered an internship.

It is possible to participate in the first year of higher education.

The student passed the institutional assessment.

The student has the necessary language skills (the language of work at the host institution) and can prove this in a credible way when assessing the application. The student's language competences will be checked as required by the European Commission (online survey after selection and upon return).

The study period can be combined with an internship so that the internship takes place as part of the study mobility under the supervision of the same host higher education institution as where the student is studying. The grant amounts for such a "combined period" are the same as for the study period.

The total mobility period in a training cycle is a maximum of 12 months (even if there is zero grant mobility). The length of mobilities in previous program sections should also be added (even if zero grant mobility). One-tier study programs (i.e. medical, law, teacher training) covers two cycles, so the maximum aggregate mobility period for one-tier programs is 24 months.

Before starting to study abroad, it is necessary to conclude a content-agreed, written learning agreement for traineeship. The activity carried out during the mobility must fit into the student's training plan.

At the end of the professional mobility period, the foreign host institution / company must issue a certificate of the training program and results completed.

It is the duty of the sending institution to strive for full acceptance of the traineeship.

Students are also full-time students enrolled in their home institution during their period abroad, are entitled to a study grant or other benefits, but must also meet their tuition and other payment obligations at the parent institution (exception: after graduation mobilities).

The student must have an active student status with the sending institution until the end of the mobility (exception: after graduation mobilities).

Students pursuing an internship in a higher education institution are exempt from tuition fees at the host institution and enjoy all the rights of all students enrolled in the host institution.

In the case of internships, taking into account the specifics of each faculty, the faculties may have additional special restrictions.
