Traineeships: Where and When
1 min read

You find your own traineeship position, but to help you, we provide a list of websites to help you. If your traineeship position is within the EU, you can receive a scholarship. Positions outside the EU you must normally finance yourself.

Traineeships Within the EU (Erasmus+)

You can complete a traineeship at a company, organisation, or research and education centre in any Erasmus country outside Sweden. You cannot complete an Erasmus+ traineeship at an EU institution or organisation that coordinates EU programmes.

You yourself must find your traineeship position and contact the organisation. Examples of webpages to begin your search are as follows:

You can also find other online services by searching the words Erasmus "internship" or "traineeship". The traineeship should somehow relate to your field of study; otherwise, there are no limitations. You can begin planning for a traineeship as early as your first semester.

You can complete your traineeship any time from your first semester of university study and up to 12 months after completion of your studies.

The traineeship must be at least 2 months long and at the most 12 months long. You can do a traineeship during the summer holiday period or use your traineeship time for research and preparation ahead of your degree project.

Traineeships Outside the EU

You must yourself organise a traineeship that will take place in a non-EU country.

See, for example, traineeships in the United States on The Swedish-American Chambers of Commerce of the United STates of America (website).
