Loyola University launches in 2015-2016 Erasmus + grants to be conceded as internships. These grants are aimed at Loyola University students who would like to do an internship in companies or institutions in the European Union. The student must look for the internship on his own in those companies or institutions that interest him and that are willing to accept him, respecting also the requirements and terms specified in the Erasmus + Internship Program.
To facilitate the search, various links to search engines for international internshipsare provided. Furthermore, the Employability and Entrepreneurship Service will keep posting the internship offers available in companies in the European Union. Those students who wish to receive them should send an email at request registration on the data base of students interested in internships abroad.
