HOW IT WORKS
Here are the main steps of Erasmus+ internship
 
1. CHECK IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE
You may apply for a scholarship to do internship abroad if *:
  • you are a degree seeking VGTU student (full time, part time, distance learning)
  • you (will) have positive evaluation of exams when leaving for internship
  • you have a command of foreign language B+ 
  • you have spent less than 10 months in other Erasmus+ exchanges
  • you have financial capacities to carry out internship abroad
  • you desire the traineeship experience!
*there may be exceptions at faculty level, please ask your Erasmus+ Faculty coordinator
*IRO may refuse to allow you participate in the Programme based on evaluation of your earlier participation results
 
2. FIND A COMPANY
To find a company is the biggest challenge during the whole Erasmus+ internship experience. Please see for the advice at My VGTU -> Internation opportunities -> Erasmus+ internship or follow IRO on Facebook - sometimes we post the request from companies. It is student's responsibility to find the company, fill all relevant documents and get the sigantures needed.

  • Fill an online form (the link is in My VGTU)

  • You apply via My VGTU -> Apply for Erasmus+ internship and attach all the required documents. 
 
The criteria for granting a scholarship are: language competence, problem solving skills,  motivation; your academic achievements and programme of internship will be checked by your faculty coordinator . Higher priority is given to: 1) students willing to carry out obligatory internship; 2) first time participants in the programme; 3) phd students; 4) proactive students (carry out wide extra curricula activities, ESN mentors, etc). Students who cancelled their previous participation in the programme are listed at the end despite their evaluation score.
