Erasmus+ is the EU’s programme for boosting skills and employability through education, training, youth and sport. Queen Mary participates in the Erasmus+ Programme and will supply funding to a limited number of students for a traineeship in Europe.
Students in their final year who are planning on doing a traineeship (internship/work placement) outside the UK but in Europe (see list of Programme Countries) after they finished their studies can now apply for an Erasmus+ grant to help towards their living cost.
This is an excellent opportunity to gain international experience and to give your CV a competitive edge!
Why take part?
There are many reasons and some of them will be personal to you:
- Gaining and improving a range of skills that are desirable to employers, including communication across cultural boundaries, self-management, independence, confidence, adaptability and self-reliance
- Developing a global and cultural outlook, a quality highly sought-after by current employers
- Building up a network of valuable contacts
- Improving your (existing) language skills
