LLP/Erasmus Placement Mobility
Placement mobility enables higher education students to do their placement (internship) in an organisation or enterprise. Internship is student’s gaining work experience or taking vocational training of an organisation or enterprise in another country participating program. The duration of the Erasmus Placement Mobility is between 3-12 months for the undergraduate, post-graduate and doctorate students. Placement mobility is not expected to be obligatory for the curriculum. The sector student doing internship must be related with curriculum. Host organisations for student placements may be enterprises, training centres, research centres and other organisations. An eligible organisation is one that is involved in economic activities in the public or private sector apart from its size, legal status or the economic sector in which it operates, including the social economy. If the host institution is HEI, as it is going to be considered an enterprise, does not need to hold Extended ERASMUS University Charter.
