Before Your Traineeship

Are you enrolled in a bachelor, master or PhD program at the University of Kaiserslautern, the University Koblenz-Landau, the University of Applied Sciences Mainz, the Catholic University of Applied Sciences Mainz, or Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz and would like to do a traineeship in Europe?

On the following pages you will find information on the requirements for a Erasmus+ traineeship, the participating countries, the funding options, the application and the preparations before the departure.

If the stated requirements for the Erasmus+ program do not apply for your traineeship, you can look at the pages of the DAAD for further possibilities of funding for your traineeship.

Special Funding for Students with Disabilities and Students with Children

Inclusion and equal opportunities are vital concerns of the Erasmus+ program. Therefore, the EU-Servicepoint can apply for special funding “special needs” for students and graduates with a proven degree of disability of 50 at the National Agency DAAD (individual application). Students and graduates with a degree of disability of 30 or up or with children receive a social top-up from the Erasmus+ funding of the EU-ServicePoint.

You can find more information on the application process and the financial support under Before / Financial Support

You can also access more information and experience reports on the websites of the DAAD.

Erasmus+ Charta for Students

This Charta informs students of their rights and obligations and of what they can expect from their home universities and the receiving organizations during the different phases of the program.
