Erasmus+ Internship

Congratulations on your internship in Europe! All important information regarding Erasmus+ grants can be found on this page.

General information

  • The Erasmus+ grant for internships abroad is a financial aid to support a self-organized internship in one of the 27 EU member states, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Northern Macedonia, Serbia, and Türkiye.

  • Students can complete several funded internships abroad up to 12 months per study cycle (e.g. Bachelor or Master) and thus complete a maximum of 24 months in total. For budgetary reasons, internships starting from January 2023 will be funded only up to a maximum of 4 months. Grants are awarded are subject to available funding.

  • Mobility to the country of origin is possible, however, these will be given the lowest priority when awarding the grants. Stays in neighboring countries where students usually reside and have their center of life (cross-border commuters) are excluded. Please report mobility to the country of origin when applying.

Prerequisites & Requirements

  • The internship takes place full-time and lasts at least two full months (60 days).

  • It is a physical stay at the location of the hosting organization/company.

    Internships can be completed at all organizations that are engaged in entrepreneurial activities. Excluded are institutions of the European Union (e.g. EU Commission) and organizations that administer EU programs. Information on this and internships positions can be found here.

  • * Bachelor's students must have completed courses amounting to at least 38 ECTS credits. Free electives do not count towards the 38 ECTS credits.

    You can check whether you meet the application requirements online at any time. To do so, please log in with your user name and password.

  • ** Master's students only need to be admitted to a master program at WU.


  • * BBE students can be awarded 8 ECTS credits for their internship, provided they have positively completed the respective internship seminar.

  • ** A CEMS compulsory internship cannot be funded through Erasmus because it does not meet the minimum performance required for the grant (3 ECTS per month).

  • Convention de Stage/Confirmation: If you need a confirmation for your internship abroad in the form of a "Convention de stage" or similar, the colleagues in the Study Information at the Study Service Center will help you. Internships are not mandatory in WU's curricula (except CEMS), which is why an Erasmus+ internship is a voluntary internship.
