Internships for Graduates

Are you looking for an internship abroad after your degree at JLU Giessen?

Grant for your planned internship abroad in the framework of “gap mobility”

Are you in the final stages of your degree course at Justus Liebig University Giessen and would you like to gain work experience abroad afterwards?

The Erasmus+ Traineeship Programme awards grants for internships abroad in the EU in the framework of “gap mobility” after completion of your degree, between your Bachelor’s and Master’s courses and between your Master’s and PhD programme.

Application requirements and deadlines

For your application to be successful, you must fulfil certain requirements:

  • You must apply for a grant during the final year of your studies at JLU
  • The internship will begin within 12 months of completion of your degree (exmatriculation certificate has to be shown)
  • The internship must be fulltime
  • You must participate in online training accompanying your internship
  • A grant may be awarded for an internship abroad lasting at least two months (= 60 days) and up to a maximum of twelve months

While you were studying, you had the opportunity to take 12 Erasmus months per cycle (B.A./B.Sc., M.A./M.Sc., PhD) or 24 months for single-cycle programmes (Law, Veterinary Medicine, Human Medicine, Dentistry, Teaching degree). These months abroad were for studying and/or for an internship as you wished. For gap mobility, however, you will be using the months designated for your  final cycle in the Erasmus+ programme. For example, if as a Bachelor’s undergraduate you spent 5 months at an Erasmus+ partner university and did an internship abroad with an Erasmus+ Traineeship grant for 3 months, you would be entitled to 4 months’ gap mobility straight after your Bachelor’s degree.

Note: Grants cannot be awarded for internships at EU institutions or for EU projects.
