In general, I am very consent with my internship. I honestly believe it was extremely useful to get practical experience of working in an international community, and a 6-month traineeship in Brussels would be an asset for my CV. I am thankful for Erasmus for such an opportunity.
Erasmus Work Placement grantee, Belgium, summer 2015

Overall, my experience in the Erasmus placement was great. I really enjoyed the work I did, and I found the whole process – from the grant application through to this report – to be well explained and easy to follow. And in the end, I learned a lot, got inspiration for my further studies, and returned to Finland with new insights into a very different part of Europe. I will use this internship as part of my studies, and the experience has even changed my masters thesis topic. I would (and already have) encourage anyone I know to participate in an experience like this, and I am so grateful for the opportunity that the Erasmus placement program gave me this summer. Erasmus Work Placement grantee, Malta, summer 2014

Overall, the internship genuinely exceeded my expectations. It allowed me to get a first-hand experience of working in a demanding work environment in the field of conflict prevention and crisis management with a highly motivated team, and also provided me with the possibility to participate in a specialised crisis management training course and extend my professional network, which is very valuable while working on my thesis and in the future when looking for work. Nonetheless, the main benefit of this experience has been that it has substantially clarified my career aspirations.

2. The electronic Grant Agreement: signed by the student and the Erasmus Coordinator

After returning from abroad, you need to bring the following documents to the Erasmus Office (Room A 110, main building)
1. Your Traineeship Certificate, or other applicable document of your internship, containing detailed information on the duration of your work placement period (exact dates required).
2. A placement report, to be submitted in NettiOpsu, through the section “International Exchanges”. Separate instructions on writing a placement report available here. (PDF)
3. You also have to fill in the electronic Erasmus participant report which will be sent to you automatically from the European Commission’s system when your work placement is close to its end.
4. Remember to take the second part of your language test in the OLS system. You will receive an email from OLS at the end of your work placement period.

Also remember to have your work placement accredited! Contact the person in charge of accreditation at your School and if necessary, bring them the reports and certificates they need for the accreditation process.
