In the framework of the programme Erasmus+ of the European Commission, “International Balkan University” – Skopje announces a call for allocation of grants for students that wish to do their traineeship abroad.

For realization of the mobility, students should select one company in which they wish to do their traineeship. The company must sign an inter-institutional agreement with the International Balkan University prior the mobility period. The students are required to:

  • Choose the country in which they wish to do their traineeship;
  • Choose a company in which they wish to do their traineeship;
  • Contact the company and get invitation letter for the traineeship period;
  • Find accommodation on their own for the period in which they will realize their traineeship;

Eligibility:

  • All students, except 1st year students, are eligible for applying for traineeship
  • Students are eligible to apply to companies in EU Member States and Candidate Countries for traineeship (Turkey and Serbia).
  • Students are not eligible to realize traineeship in countries where they have their citizenship (for example, students with Serbian citizenship are not allowed to do an Erasmus+ granted traineeship in Republic of Serbia)
  • Students are eligible to apply only if they have an invitation letter from the company (since in the application form there is a part in which they have to upload the letter).

Please note that International Balkan University does not bear responsibility for your choice of a country or 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/
