Traineeship for recent graduates

INN University offers Erasmus+ scholarship for students who wish to complete a traineeship (internship) at a workplace in an EU country after graduation. This is a unique opportunity to gain (international) work experience.


Who can apply?

All 3rd-year bachelor (undergraduate) and 2nd-year master (graduate) students at INN University.

Be aware that if you have used 12 months of possible Erasmus+ support for exchange during your degree, you are not eligible to apply for support during a traineeship after graduation. 

Where can you go?

Anywhere in the EU! You can go to companies, organizations, institutions and schools in all EU countries, including Iceland, Liechtenstein, Macedonia and Turkey (Excluding EU institutions and the Erasmus+ National Office).

When can you go?

The scheme applies to students who complete their degree in May/June. An internship must last for a minimum of 3 months (up to one year), and be completed during the first year after graduation.

Scholarship rates

The following rates apply for 2020/2021:

  • 660 EURO per month to Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg and Sweden.
  • 610 EURO per month to other programme countries.


Does everybody who want to travel receive a scholarship?

The International Office has a limited amount of scholarship funds. If many applications are received, applicants will be assessed and awarded the scholarship according to their GPA from the degree (does not include grades from exchange semesters).

Additional financing

Students can receive other financial support, such as scholarships from other programmes, funds, loans, income from work, etc. As the scheme is not a part of the degree and does not provide ECTS credits, students do not qualify for support from Lånekassen.


Semester fee at INN University

All students need to pay the semester fee at INN University for the time they are abroad (autumn and/or spring), in order to receive the Erasmus+ grant.


The Erasmus+ programme requires that students travelling on internships abroad have adequate health insurance, accident insurance and liability insurance. Students can be insured by the company/organization abroad, or by taking out their own insurances.
