Internships in Europe

Erasmus+ programme for internships

ASH Berlin awards Erasmus+ scholarships for internships in European countries eligible for students enrolled full-time at the ASH Berlin in all fields of study (Bachelor and Master levels). The scholarship is funded by the European Mobility Program Erasmus+ and can be granted for internship placements in all EU countries, as well as in Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Turkey. 

Applications are open to all regularly enrolled degree-seeking students at ASH Berlin (Bachelor and Master levels). In order to be granted the Erasmus+ scholarship, the period of your internship must be at least two months. The funding can be granted for internships that last at least two months up to a maximum of 12 months.

The amount of the scholarship as well as the total number of awarded scholarships depend on the funds provided by the national Erasmus+ agency, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and on the target region.

The scholarship is awarded on the basis of academic performance. Other selection criteria are the motivation, language skills and social commitment of the applicant as well as the reasonability of the stay abroad. The mentioned criteria correspond to the selection criteria defined by the KIA (Commission for International Affairs at ASH Berlin) and the Academic Senate of ASH Berlin.

The decision regarding the scholarship is taken within one month after the application deadline. The scholarship will only be awarded if the application has been submitted by the deadline and if it meets the selection criteria above.

Internships for recent graduates (Erasmus+)

You have nearly finished your studies?
You want to take the chance to gain experience by doing an Internship abroad?
Or you may want to use the free time you will have between finishing your bachelor degree and starting a masters degree, by doing an internship abroad?

Then you should think about applying for the “Internship programm for graduates”.

Erasmus+ supports traineeships (work placements, internships, etc) abroad for recent graduates. By doing a traineeship abroad with Erasmus+, you can improve not only your communication, language and inter-cultural skills, but also soft skills highly valued by future employers, as well as become more entrepreneurial.

Your internship abroad can last from a minimum of 2 months to a maximum of 12 months in all EU-member states (as well as in Norway, Island, Liechtenstein and Turkey). You can apply for a grant of 400-520€ per month.

Please note that:

  • You have to apply for the grant at the International Office before your removal from the register of students (“Exmatrikulation”), ideally you apply during your last year of study and before handing in your last exam or thesis.
  • The internship can only start after your removal from the register of students. Therefore you have a timeperiod of 1 year in which you have to start and finish the internship abroad
  • After being removed from the register of students at ASH and starting the internship with the Erasmus+ grant for recent graduates you are not allowed to be registered at any kind of University
  • You should have at least two months of Erasmus+ promotion left to be able to apply for the grant

All information regarding application you can find on our website. You are also welcome to come to our counselling hours on Tuesdays 14-16pm or Thursdays 11-13am.
