Erasmus+ Traineeship Mobility Grant Ranking and Allocation for the Academic Year 2022-2023

What is an Erasmus+ Traineeship?
An Erasmus + Traineeship is an internship/traineeship (minimum 2 months, maximum 12 months) in a company or organization (public or private) in the Program Countries that may be supported by a mobility grant.

The mobility grants are never guaranteed or meant to cover the full cost of the stay.
For more information: https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/opportunities/traineeships-students_en
Students are themselves responsible for finding the traineeship position. Applications for mobility grant allocation require a TRAINEESHIP LEARNING AGREEMENT SIGNED BY THE RECEIVING ORGANIZATION/ENTERPRISE in the Program Countries.
1 – Who can apply?
Students who have completed at least one semester in the MEF University faculty programs prior to the mobility period, have a CGPA at least 2.20, and present a SIGNED TRAINEESHIP LEARNING AGREEMENT.
Note 1: For the Erasmus+ Traineeship to count towards the mandatory internship, the conditions and procedure of the mandatory internship need to be met separately. Particularly, mandatory internships usually require four semesters to have been completed prior to the internship. FADA does not count traineeships before four semesters have been completed.

Note 2: Students can also do an Erasmus+ Traineeship within one year from graduation, provided that they apply to be included in the program before graduation.
