Undergraduate and graduate programmes offered by the University iuav of Venice:

Erasmus+ Traineeship


The Erasmus+ (E+) programme supports student exchange in the frame of the first, the second and the third study level (bachelor’s degree; master’s degree; postgraduate specialization programmes; doctoral studies).  


Students can benefit of an exchange abroad in the frame of E+ programme as follows:

>       mobility for traineeship, with E+ scholarship or E+ status: from 2 to 12 months


Mobilities for traineeship and for studies can be both supported multiple times in the same cycle of studies, provided that:

>       the total time abroad does not exceed 12 months

>       the mobility for studies and the mobility for traineeship do not simultaneously take place



student’s success stories - Erasmus Traineeship @Iuav


The E+ traineeship frequently leads to an employment opportunity for the trainee in the host institution. Moreover, an internship in a foreign Country, being more challenging than a local placement experience, improves in participants the development of additional soft and hard skills.

Main information




> Students


E+ for traineeship is addressed to Iuav students - regularly enrolled to bachelor’s degree; master’s degree; postgraduate specialization programmes and doctoral studies - who want to carry out a curricular internship, namely a traineeship embedded in their study plan, which awards university credits.


For Iuav students E+ traineeship can only be recognized, in fact, when it is curricular. It cannot be recognized as supernumerary in the study plan.


> Recent graduates


It is also possible to carry out an E+ traineeship as a recent graduate, that is within 12 months after graduation, yet by the programme deadline.

Candidates must apply for E+ traineeship before graduation (e.g. during the last a.y. of studies). Therefore, for students approaching the end of their study programme it is recommended contacting the International Mobility office to be acknowledged in advance about the opening of application calls, application procedures and deadlines with regards to E+ traineeship.




The internship can last from a minimum of 2 months to a maximum of 12 months. However, it must take place according to the timeline of the project.
