Traineeships for graduates

Comenius University students have the opportunity to participate in a work traineeship abroad through the Erasmus+ programme after graduation.

Graduate traineeships, funded by the EU under the Erasmus+ programme, are organised in cooperation with WorkSpace Europe. For more information about WorkSpace Europe, please see

You can complete a graduate internship in all EU countries (except Slovakia) + North Macedonia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Türkiye.

How to apply for a traineeship?

You fill in the application form directly on the WorkSpace Europe website. Each faculty then sets a selection procedure date. For further information, please contact the faculty Erasmus office. The application process will be open again in April 2023.

You must fulfil the conditions set by your faculty, and be successful in the faculty selection process while still in the final year of full-time study at a CU. Students in their final year of bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree studies can apply.

You must complete your traineeship within one year after graduation, but you must apply while you are still a student.

Duration of the traineeship

The minimum duration of the traineeship is 2 months, i.e. 60 days in one host organisation. The maximum duration depends on how many months of mobility you have already completed as an Erasmus+ undergraduate student (study and/or traineeship).

Number of months funded: maximum 3 months, grant amount 620 € – 670 € per month (depending on the country).

Number of hours worked: 35 – 40 hours per week

When I can go?: after my state exams - the traineeship must be completed within 12 months of graduation.
