Did you know you can work abroad in Europe during your degree and get paid?
Erasmus+ Work Placement Scheme
Erasmus+ provides a financial grant for students to carry out a traineeship (work placement) in countries across Europe. The restrictions on who you work for and where you work are fairly flexible – you can choose to work in most sectors, in private or public companies, schools or non-profit organisations.
Erasmus+ will help you by providing funding but you have to apply for the work placement yourself. Below are some websites to start your search:
If you are eligible for a grant then you may receive up to €450 - €500* a month, depending on the country you visit. There may be some additional funding available for students with special needs, which you will need to apply for before you leave.
* As of 2016-17 academic year. For more information, please contact the Study Abroad Team
