ERASMUS+ Traineeship for Graduates

Call for Applications

  • Deadline: Friday, May 31st, 2024

The Erasmus Office of the University of Nicosia is currently recruiting prospective graduates to participate in the Erasmus+ Graduate Traineeship Programme. Therefore, should you be interested in joining this exciting programme make sure to submit your application on time! The eligible mobilities can take place within the period 15/07/2024 – 30/06/2025 upon budget availability (any other special arrangements, only upon discussion and approval by Erasmus Office).

Based on the Erasmus+ Impact Study, graduates who have used the Erasmus+ Programme have doubled their recruitment opportunities. 64% of employers underline that graduates with an international background are given greater professional responsibility. In addition, they also believe that international experience is important for recruitment.

  1. Be a full time Bachelor’s or Master’s or PhD new graduate
  2. Have a CPA of at least 2 out of 4
  3. Official Student Residence Permit (non-EU participants)
  1. Priority will be given to applicants who have found a host organization. However, it is not a requirement to have a letter of acceptance at this phase.
  2. The graduate applicant must have his/her internship within 12 months after their graduation date (date of degree issue).
  3. Students wanting to go back to their home country are given lower priority in the selection of the whole year. They will be listed last during the selection process and will be considered only if there is grant availability by the end of the project. However, if a student is selected he/she is allowed to receive the same amount as the other students, independently from their country of origin. Otherwise, a Zero Grant Mobility can be considered or be offered the minimum eligible funded period which is two months.
  4. Due to limited funds, the maximum mobility period to be funded is 6 months. Nevertheless, the Erasmus Grant will be discussed in detail with each participant after the selection of the successful applicants.
  5. Distance Learning participants must do their traineeship in another country other than their country of origin (permanent residence) and the country of their home University (in this case Cyprus).
  6. All approved applicants should settle any outstanding balances they have from previous semesters at UNIC before the start of their physical mobility.
