Erasmus+ Internship

Going abroad for an internship enables you to broaden your horizon and gain new experience. The Erasmus programme supports internships within Europe. This makes it easier for students and recent graduates to start working in another country. At the same time, the programme promotes international cooperation between universities and companies.
