Traineeships for international students

General information

UAM accepts individual applications from international students for traineeships at UAM, preferably to be managed within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme, but applications for traineeships that are managed with other non-Erasmus training agreements will also be taken into consideration, provided that they are signed between the UAM, the student and their home university.

Pleae also take into account that:

  • Traineeships are unpaid, so it is important that you are to receive financial support by Erasmus+ or other programmes.
  • UAM can only accept recent graduates if their traineeships are managed exclusively within the Erasmus+ programme, by signing the programme’s Learning Agreement for Traineeships (not any other type of agreement).
  • UAM cannot manage traineeships for medical graduates in its affiliated hospitals.
  • It is particularly difficult to an internship during summer, especially if it includes August, since there is very little activity at the university that month.
  • UAM only manages traineeships that take place at the university, not in external companies or organizations
