Where and when to apply:
- Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and should be submitted to the International Office around 5 months before you wish to start your internship. In certain circumstances, applications may also be accepted at shorter notice.
- In urgent cases, applications can also be submitted directly to the EU-Praktikum Thüringen upon consultation with the International Office.
- Graduates wishing to apply for funding must submit their application before they complete their studies.
- For more important information and a description of the application documents required, see https://www.tu-ilmenau.de/eu-praktikum/erasmusplus/studierende/bewerbung/.
Selection is based on the application documents you submit. You will need to state in your application your motivation for wishing to complete an internship abroad and the expected impact on your future studies or entry into professional life. The letter of recommendation from your faculty moreover qualifies you for selection for Erasmus+ funding for your planned internship.
When you meet the prerequisites for funding, the Learning Agreement is prepared and finalised.
Depending on the working language during the internship, an OLS language test and possibly also an OLS language course may be required (available online, free of charge).
The funding agreement for your internship will then be prepared so that the first payment can be made shortly after all of the documents have been submitted (and, where applicable, the language test completed).
