The Erasmus+ Traineeship Programme enables students to carry out an apprenticeship/internship in University Departments; the duration of the Erasmus+ Traineeship ranges from a minimum of 2 months to a maximum of 12 months.
The Erasmus+ Traineeship Programme is open to students who are enrolled in a Degree Programme offered by European Universities that are part of the Erasmus+ Programme (not necessarily partners of Politecnico di Torino).
In order to participate in the Erasmus+ Traineeship Programme, you can check the activities of the research groups within the Departments and contact the Professor responsible for the research group you are interested in. You can check this link for further information: http://www.polito.it/ricerca/dipartimenti/
You can send the following documents to the Professor responsible for the research group you are interested:
- Updated curriculum vitae
- Updated Transcript of Records
- Motivation/recommendation letter or a short summary of the activity you would like to develop at Politecnico di Torino
- Learning Agreement for Traineeship proposal
If the Professor approves your request, you can ask for his/her help to fill in your Learning Agreement for Traineeship proposal and, once this document is signed by the Professor of Politecnico di Torino, you will send it to your Home University that will assign you a scholarship.
When your Learning Agreement for Traineeship is signed by your Home University, you have to send it to the Incoming Mobility Office that will enable you to fill in the online application form, which is necessary for the enrollment (you will receive the instructions to proceed by e-mail). Notice that you have to fill in the application form before your arrival at Politecnico di Torino.
In case your Home University does not provide you with a scholarship, you will still be able to perform your traineeship period at Politecnico di Torino as a host, upon the Department authorization, without being enrolled.
