The European Union’s Erasmus+ programme enables university students to undertake and internship in their field in a European country of a duration between 2 and 12 months. In the Erasmus+ programme graduates can also go on an internship.

An Erasmus work placement may take place only in the countries involved in the Erasmus+ programme:

  • EU member states: Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Cyprus, Lithuania, Latvia, Luxembourg, Hungary, Malta, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Austria, Romania, Greece, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden
  • countries of the European Economic Area (Norway, Iceland and Lichtenstein)
  • also Turkey, Serbia and Macedonia
  • mobility to Switzerland is not possible

ERASMUS ID code of Masaryk University is CZ BRNO05.

Participation Conditions

To be able to participate in an Erasmus+ work placement a student has to:

  • be enrolled in an accredited Bachelor’s, Master’s or Doctoral study programme at Masaryk University – full-time, combined or even distance form of studies
  • be a citizen of any country but studying in the Czech Republic in an accredited study programme of any year
  • be duly registered in a study programme at the sending institution during the work placement; the student can neither interrupt nor terminate their studies at the sending institution before completing the work placement
  • be chosen in an officially announced selection procedure


Further specifications:

  • a student who studies in an accredited study programme in the Czech Republic and wishes the work placement and/or study exchange to take place in his/her Country of Origin receives the lowest priority during the selection procedure and is given the status of a zero grant student, i.e. is not entitled to receive financial aid
  • work placement cannot take place in the Country of Residence (where the student is enrolled in an accredited study programme)
  • students who came to the Czech Republic through the Erasmus Mundus/Erasmus+ ICM programme are not eligible to the Erasmus+ work placement


Graduate work placement:

  • the work placement can newly take place also within 12 months after graduation (including the placement period)
  • student becomes graduate on the day of successfully passing the state examination – the work placement must start and end within exactly one year starting from this day 
  • the work placement might take 2-12 months where every previous Erasmus mobility within the specific study cycle reduces this period (this concerns the study cycle during which a work placement application is submitted – be careful with the long-cycle Master’s programmes, see more information in Qualification Criteria (see the section Documents)
  • participant must successfully pass the selection procedure BEFORE his/her graduation, i.e. before the date of state examination
  • whoever has interest in a graduate work placement, must determine what manner it will be registered in the country of origin with regard to health insurance a social security


Other important conditions:

  • each applicant has to meet the Qualification requirements of the Erasmus+ work placement (see the section Documents)
  • the work placement should take place in any public organisation or private enterprise active on the labour market or in the sphere of education (private or public enterprise on local, regional, or national level; professional association; trade union; research institutes; non-financial organisations; educational centres, etc.)
  • unauthorised organisations where a work placement cannot be entered into:
  • the student has to work full-time in the host institution
  • research cannot be financially supported under this activity
  • the condition of work placement is not the signing of a bilateral agreement, but the work placement has to be arranged and confirmed in advance
  • the work placement has to be part of a study programme, to be approved by the department and subsequently to be recognised – the student has to achieve ECTS credits for the work placement which have to be noted in the diploma supplement (the work placement becomes a part of the given study programme)
  • Mobility programme – an Erasmus work placement requires the student to apply for course/credit recognition from the exchange study, see article 9, paragraph 1 in rector’s directive No. 8/2011 Rules of Exchange Study Results Recognition from Study Placements and Work Placements Abroad of Masaryk University Students. More information can be found here.


From the academic year 2020/2021 it is also possible to carry out an online mobility or a blended mobility (a combination of online and physical mobility). Such mobilities will be recognized into the individual studies.

  • physical part of the blended mobility must fulfill the requirement of a minimal length as set by the Erasmus+ programme rules (2 months). The length of the physical mobility could be shortened or replaced in full by online mobility only in duly justified cases of force majeure.
  • the duration of the online mobility is not financially supported within the Erasmus+ programme. Financial support is given in cases of physical mobility abroad or in case of physical part of the blended mobility.
  • the duration of the physical part of the mobility is calculated towards the Erasmus+ mobility limit of 12 months within one study cycle.


Repeated Student Exchange Placements within the Erasmus Exchange Programme

The European Commission has set down the following rules for repeated Erasmus student exchange placements within the Erasmus+ programme:

  • each student might participate in a work placement for a maximum period of 12 months
  • any previous mobilities (study and work placements) at the given level of studies are included (counted together) in the given 12-month period allocated for the placement (this also includes mobilities within the LLP Erasmus 2007-2013 programme)
  • the programme is not intended for students who came to the Czech Republic studying under the Erasmus Mundus/Erasmus+ ICM programme

Despite the possibility of repeated Erasmus+ work placements, their repetition may be taken into account on the basis of preferences in the selection procedure due to limited financial support allotted by the European Commission.
