Live and work in a European city with an European internship
Along with our European partners, we offer traineeship roles across Europe. Placements are wide-ranging so you could be working within architecture, media, law or bioscience, for example – there’s a position that suits your interests and ambitions. Working abroad is a fantastic way to immerse yourself into a new culture and add valuable skills to your CV.
Work placements carried out as part of the Erasmus+ programme allow you to undertake placements lasting two to twelve months during summer holidays or a sandwich year. You may find your own placement or speak to your School’s International Mobility Coordinator, LJMU Careers Advisers or the LJMU Go Abroad Team to help you find a traineeship placement in Europe.
Who is it for?
You are eligible for a European internship as long as you find your placement before you graduate.
What does it involve?
European Internships – Sourced by students
If you find your own internships in Erasmus European partner countries you are entitled to the Erasmus+ grant. For further information on the Erasmus+ grant and once an internship has been secured for between two to twelve months, please email the Study Abroad Team.
One way to find a traineeship is through a placement agent. LJMU recommends Stage Malta for internships in Malta. They will arrange unpaid internships and provide accommodation and support during the placement. For further information and prices, please refer to Stage Malta. Please note that Stage Malta will charge an administration fee.
How to apply
If you are interested in applying for a European internship, please contact your School’s International Mobility Coordinator (IMC).
Internships in Europe are often unpaid but if you're on a placement from two to twelve months, you will receive the Erasmus grant.
Who to contact about going abroad
If you’re a current student interested in going abroad, you should discuss your options with your International Mobility Coordinator (IMC) and/or Programme Leader within your School.

Erasmus has become who I am. I had an incredible experience engaging in international culture and I have friends from all around the world.
