If you consider going abroad for a traineeship after your studies, you already have to hand in your Pre-Application as long as you are enrolled as a student - even if you haven´t got a traineeship yet. The funding is available up to one year after the end of your studies at maximum.
Who can apply?
This offer applies to graduates of all universities in Saxony-Anhalt who are not (re-)enrolled at a university. It is generally open to all disciplines.
Where do the traineeships take place?

Traineeships in one of the EU institutions or in institutions managing EU programs are not possible. Target countries are all countries of the EU (except Germany) as well as Norway, Iceland, Serbia, Liechtenstein, Macedonia and Turkey.
Duration of traineeships
The traineeship duration has to be between two and twelve months. Only full-time traineeships with at least 35 hours per week can be funded.
