Campus Mundi internship

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

 

CAMPUS MUNDI scholarship for internship abroad (primarily for students with ERASMUS+ zero grant status)

Within the framework of the Campus Mundi (mobility and internationalisation in higher education) programme (project: EFOP-3.4.2-VEKOP/15), the Tempus Public Foundation calls for applications for student mobility for internship abroad, to be carried out in the period between 1 June 2017 and 30 September 2018.

 

Objectives

The objective of the programme is that applicants acquire competences, experience and skills, which are closely connected to their studies at the home university, and which can be an advantage for them in the labour market. In the case of master and PhD students, research work can also be supported, if it is closely connected to their study requirements.

The mobility for internship can be performed in countries participating in the Erasmus+ programme as well as in other countries. Within the framework of the current call, students cannot apply to the countries participating in the Stipendium Hungaricum programme, a separate call will be issued for those countries.

The minimum duration of the internship is 2 months (60 days) excluding the days of travel, the maximum duration is 5 months. The internship must be finished no later than 30 September 2018.

Students currently studying in Hungary with the Stipendium Hungaricum programme or any other Hungarian state scholarship are NOT eligible to apply.

In case an applicant applies to a country which is part of the Erasmus+ programme[1], at the same time they must also submit and Erasmus+ zero grant application to the University of Debrecen International Relations Office (Erasmus+ call for application here: http://mobi.unideb.hu/hirek/10572).

Applications cannot be submitted to countries not suggested for travel by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs:

  • institutions and agencies of the EU
  • organizations dealing with EU programmes
  • diplomatic and public institutions of the home country of the student in the receiving country (embassies, consulates, cultural institutions, schools)
