The Erasmus+ programme, which is financed by the European Commission, makes it possible for you to apply for an Erasmus+ scholarship for practical training (Erasmus placement) and ex-jobs, for a minimum of 60 days up to 12 months.
You can go abroad more than once as an Erasmus student during your studies. You can get scholarships for studies and/or traineeship for a maximum amount of twelve months per study level, that is to say twelve months each on bachelor, master and doctorate level. You could for example get scholarships for four months of traineeship or ex-job and six months of exchange studies during your master and still have the possibility to study abroad with a scholarship for a whole year during your PhD level.
