3. What is the minimum and maximum duration to receive the Erasmus Internship grant?

 

Minimum duration: 2 months

Maximum duration financed: 5 months * (the duration of the internship may be longer than 5 months, but the extra months will not be funded by the Erasmus + program, although they are considered part of the scholarship).

* Depending on the budget finely allocated by SEPIE, the maximum number of months financed may be modified.

 

4.When can I do an Erasmus Internship?

 

Start and end dates must be between September 15, 2021 and September 30, 2022.

In addition, the internship cannot begin until 15 days after the end of the period in which you request them. This means that, if for example the term ends on January 29, until at least February 14 you could not start and therefore the contract start date must be that and not before.

 

 

5. Should I find the host entity or will the University look for it?

 

The search for the host entity is part of the content of the practice and should be the responsibility of the student, although we help you in the search in the following ways:

· The Internship Commission of the center compiles the offer of internships which will also include entities located in the international sphere. This list is made up of the entities provided by ADEIT and the contacts that the internship coordinator or other member of the center may have.

· On the International Relations website (www.uv.es/relint), in the section Erasmus Internships> Outgoing> Find an institution, you will find useful links to entities that offer internships, and also the list of companies where other students have been doing their practices. You can see it here.

 

 6. Can I modify the internship period?

 

Yes, in a motivated way, as long as it is in the same host entity, before finishing your internship and with the approval of the entity and the internship coordinator.

To do this you have to send from your university email (@ alumni.uv.es) to our email practiques@uv.es the document "Addendum for modifications in the internship agreement" that you can find here.

 

 7. If I request an extension, will I also charge for that period?

 

Taking into account that only 5 months can be financed, if the extension does not exceed this maximum, it would be charged.

If, when requesting the extension, you exceed the 12 or 24-month count of the Erasmus grant, it cannot be granted.

 

 8. If I do not have the nationality of the country where I am studying, can I participate in the program?

 

Yes, as long as you have a valid nationality or residence permit in one of the countries participating in the Erasmus + program or in third countries; In this case, you must prove that you are in possession of a valid permit to reside in Spain during the period of the mobility.

If you are from a non-European country, you should check with the consulate or embassy of the destination country if you need to process any type of permit or visa.

 

 9. If I have already enjoyed the Erasmus Studies grant, can I apply for the Erasmus Internship grant?

 

Yes. Provided that, added to the study and internship period, you do not exceed the maximum total of 12 months in each of the training cycles (bachelor's or master's degree). This limit is 24 months in the degrees of Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy and Double Degree in Pharmacy and in Human Nutrition and Dietetics as they are degrees from which you can access the doctorate). The computation of these 12 or 24 months will include:

• Erasmus stays that have been carried out without financial funding.

• The Erasmus stays that the student had enjoyed in previous courses within the framework of the lifelong learning program of the European Union.

 

Thus, if you have enjoyed, for example, an Erasmus Studies stay for a total of 6 months in your undergraduate studies, you still have 6 months to carry out Erasmus mobility, either as Erasmus Studies again or as Erasmus Internships.

 

10. So, if I leave for more than five months, what exceeds does not count towards the maximum of 12 months, does it?

 

Yes it counts. The Erasmus Internship scholarship includes the funded months and also those that are not funded, since your contract must include the entire internship period.

 

11. What is the Training Agreement or “Practice Agreement”?

 

It is the document equivalent to the "Learning Agreement" for studies. It is a personalized document that includes: the work or work program to be carried out, the results at the level of knowledge, skills and abilities to be acquired, the tutoring activities, the recognition to be obtained after the internship, etc.

Also, in the case of modality A, remember that you must sign the curricular internship agreement provided by ADEIT, following the usual procedure for your degree. If you have doubts, you should consult the secretariat of your center.

 

 12. What are the language requirements?

 

The host institution will be in charge of evaluating the candidate's linguistic competence for the internship. It is not necessary to accredit linguistic knowledge to the University of Valencia.

 

13 - When will I collect the scholarship?
