Notes for planned Erasmus+ internships abroad | Status 03.06.2020

Internships in the Erasmus+ program are still supported!

Even if not all developments are foreseeable against the background of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, you can still plan your Erasmus+ stay abroad. Please note the following information:

  • You can start an internship abroad at your own request and on your own initiative. Neither EU-Praktikum THURINGIA nor your home university can take responsibility for the existence of infection prevention measures on site. Please consider the regulations of your home university regarding stays abroad (students of the TU Ilmenau please inform yourself here).
  • Please inform yourself sufficiently about the valid regulations and infection prevention measures at your home town and at your destination before you start your journey. In particular, please use the information provided by the German Foreign Office (AA) and the local authorities. The existing regulations for the planned internship period apply.
  • Inform yourself regularly before and during your stay abroad about the current security situation at the Foreign Office (travel and security information).
  • Please inform us immediately if you do not start, interrupt or cancel your internship stay in your host country due to a changed security situation or current travel warning from the German Foreign Office.
