Below you can find more information on the Erasmus+ internship programme for ARCHIP students as well as the PDF application form. If you cannot find the answer to your question below, try referring to the enclosed Erasmus+ guide for ARCHIP students or contact our international office.
Additionally, if you need an official letter from ARCHIP, stating the basics of the programme, to send to a company in order to facilitate your admission, contact ARCHIP's international office for a copy.
Erasmus+ is a large educational platform launched by the European Commission which encompasses a number of activities, one of them being the facilitation of internships abroad for university students to help them become successful in the future.
In short, if there is an internship abroad (in almost any firm you want) which you would like to do and it relates to what you're studying, Erasmus+ programme enables you to take the opportunity by supporting you financially.
ARCHIP students are able to take on an Erasmus+ internship from July 2019 under the following conditions:
Minimum period for the internship is 60 days, maximum is 360. As of now, we would like to offer the opportunity to as many students as possible – that means we will only accommodate requests for internships with a maximum duration of 180 days with a possibility of extension.
Extensions are technically possible and they depend on the Erasmus+ funds ARCHIP has. If you'd like to extend your traineeship (in the same or a different firm), you have to contact our international office at least 30 days prior to the indicated end of your original internship.
That's up to you! You select a firm/company/organization of your liking and approach it to see what are the internship possibilities there. We make sure you get a basic allowance for your stay.
There are only two conditions:
ARCHIP will also be posting internship opportunities from our partners from time to time.
For news on Brexit and mobility with our UK partners, we recommend checking the latest developments on the official European Commission's website. Feel free to contact our international office if you are unsure.
The Erasmus+ program offers a standard monthly allowance for internship mobility of EUR 500–660 depending on your country of choice (see the exact sums in the PDF guide at the top of this page). This financial support will be transferred to your account in full before you leave for your internship.
You may receive allowance from your firm as well, however, you should not be classified as a regular employee.
The internship does not affect your tuition.
If you'd like to finish your studies in the regular period, we recommend taking a summer internship or signing up for a graduate traineeship.
If you're okay with extending your studies a little bit, feel free to take on a longer internship, perhaps combined with studying abroad.
BA students can get credit from 'Preparing for Practice' for Erasmus+ internship.
There is one application round for the upcoming academic year – but if you missed it, that's okay. You may then apply any time and we will evaluate the applications on an individual basis. If we have enough funds and your school records are good, we'll be happy to support you.
