  • Have been accepted by a public or private organization, located in any of the participating countries, to carry out an internship period with an end date before April 30, 2022, and have the authorization of their center -through the coordinator of internships- to carry out the stay, in accordance with the internship regulations of the TecnoCampus and the school itself, based on the positive assessment of a training project agreed with the host organization.
  • Do not enjoy an Erasmus + Studies scholarship at the same time. It will be possible to enjoy both Erasmus scholarship modalities, as long as the stay for practical studies is carried out consecutively, ie they cannot coincide in dates.
  • Students who have been selected during the last year of their degree must complete the internship during the period of one year from obtaining the degree.
  • Adaptation of the practices to the profile and to the academic curriculum of the student.
  • Once the award has been resolved, the internship will be formalized by signing a tripartite academic agreement between the company, TecnoCampus and the interested party, which regulates the main aspects of the internship as well as the commitments of each of them. the parts.

The selection will be carried out in a competitive bidding regime, in accordance with the evaluation criteria of the following applications:

  • Average mark of the file that the student has open at the time of making his application. This average grade is calculated on a scale of 0 to 10.
  • Accreditation of knowledge of the working language at the host company will be assessed. Only official certificates will be accepted in accordance with the AGAUR table (Agency for the Management of University and Research Grants) for the MOBINT call, including the UPF language proficiency certification test (PCCL): up to 0,5 points

In the event of a tie, preference will be given to the student with the most credits passed.

Internships must last minimum of 2 months and maximum of 12 months, if you have no previous mobility.

If you have already done another Erasmus mobility (either for studies or internships), the total sum of all stays cannot exceed 12 months at the same level of studies (degree, master's or doctorate).

For example, if you are doing a second degree and in the previous degree you did a 9-month Erasmus mobility, in the new degree you will only be able to do an 3-month Erasmus stay (either for studies or internships). On the other hand, if you start a master's degree, your "Erasmus counter" will be back to 0, no matter how much you have exhausted the 12 months during the degree.

For the current call, the dates of your internship must be between theJanuary 1, 2021 and May 31, 2022.

Students benefiting from mobility places who meet all the requirements will be able to receive a grant from the EU, as a contribution to their travel and accommodation expenses during the internship period abroad.

This amount will depend on the host country, and will be calculated according to the following table:

  • Group 1 (400 € / month): Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, Norway, the United Kingdom and Sweden.
  • Group 2 (350 € / month): Germany, Austria, Belgium, Spain, Cyprus, France, Greece, Italy, Malta, the Netherlands and Portugal.
  • Group 3 (300 € / month): Bulgaria, Croatia, Slovakia, Estonia, Slovenia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Northern Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Czech Republic, Serbia and Turkey.

Students who have enjoyed a general MECD scholarship during the year prior to mobility will have their grant increased by € 100 / month.

Internships will be funded for a maximum of 3 months, which may be extended up to a maximum of 12 months in the event of not exhausting the full amount awarded by SEPIE.
