Students who are enrolled in TalTech can apply for Erasmus+ scholarship for internships (traineeships, work placements, ect).
The internship abroad can last from a minimum of 2 months to a maximum of 6 months. Students can participate in the Erasmus+ programme multiple times, either as a student or as an intern, up to 12 months per one level of study (Bachelor/Master/PhD). In order to get funding, internship has to be related to your studies and students must receive ECTS for it afterwards.
Application for Erasmus+ scholarship for internship is open all year round! However, make sure to submit your application at least 1 month before the internship starts*.
Students can do their internship in EU member countries, as well as in Iceland, Liechtenstein, North Macedonia, Norway, Serbia, and Turkey. Host organisations for internships may be enterprises, training centers, research centers and other organisations including higher education institutions in Erasmus+ Programme Countries. Excluded are European Union institutions, bodies and agencies.
*Applications submitted in July might take longer time to be processed.
Important to know
In case you have already fulfilled the internship course in your curriculum, you can still go for your internship abroad and use the course UTT0130 - Internship Abroad (Välispraktika) to fulfill the requirement for ECTS.
Keep in mind, we can only give out the scholarship when the internship is actually taking place in host institution/country. Online internships cannot be funded.
We are unable to fund internships, which are halfway done or has been already completed. Students must submit their applications at least 1 month before the internship starts to be eligible for the scholarship.
If you are studying in one of the joint study programmes between TalTech and another Estonian university, students can apply from the leading side only: Cybersecurity, Materials and Process for Sustainable Energetics and Design and Technology Futures students must apply through TalTech; Software Engineering must apply through University of Tartu.
Students can also go for an internship abroad as a recent graduate, within one year of graduation. Plan ahead - you must apply at least 1 month before your thesis defense, while still enrolled in TalTech. There are 10 places available for recent graduates for 2023/2024 Academic Year.
In case you are doing your internship on your last semester before graduation, the end date of the mobility shall be:
15th of May in Spring semester;
- 15th of December in Autumn semester.
