Application deadline

Please submit your application for an Erasmus+ funding about 4 months before your planned traineeship start date . You can still add your traineeship institution later on. The application must be submitted while you are still studying, i.e. before your last examination.

Applications received less than 2 month before the start of the traineeship can unfortunately not be considered. In this case, please contact us by phone.

Complete the application form and register in our Mobility Online applicant database.

Then upload the signed application form and your application documents to the database. As soon as they are complete, they will be sent to EU-Praktikum THÜRINGEN.

Please note:
Please make sure that your letter of recommendation is printed on the university's header sheet and includes why you are eligible for funding through the Erasmus+ programme, e.g. because of your interests shown in your studies and/or your commitment.

We first check your application for completeness. When selecting you for funding, we particularly consider your personal motivation and the letter of recommendation from your faculty/department.
