In the framework of the programme ERASMUS+ of the European Commission, IBU announces a call for allocation of scholarships for students that wish to do their traineeship abroad.
For realization of the mobility students should select one university/company in which they wish to do their traineeship. The university/company does not need to have an agreement with International Balkan University prior the mobility period. The students are required to:

  • Choose the country in which they wish to do their traineeship;
  • Choose an university/company in which they wish to do their traineeship;
  • Contact the university/company and get approval for the traineeship period;
  • Find accommodation on their own for the period in which they will realize their traineeship;

Please note that International Balkan University does not bear responsibility for your choice of a country or university/company. We can only recommend you the official Erasmus+ traineeship webpage to help you with your research, but you are not limited to choose your traineeship programme from this webpage: http://erasmusintern.org/
Duration of mobility: minimum 2 months

  • The traineeshipmust not start before the Final or Make-up Exam week from 2017/2018 academic calendar

Interested students should submit a “Student Application Form” in a printed version to the International Relations Office (office no. 301) until 31.03.2018.
The procedure for selection/ranking of the students will be accomplished by the internal IBU Commission that will conduct an interview with the interested candidates. Candidates will be ranked and selected according to the following criteria:

  • Year of studies and study program;
  • The reasons for doing traineeship abroad;
  • Compatibility of host university(s) with the study program of the student;
