There are two types of Erasmus+ Internships:

  1. Credit internship (internship as part of an internship course)
  2. Non-credit internship

Credit internships are possible only if there is an internship course offered allowing for internships outside of Sweden. Non-credit internships can be completed either during or within a year after (“Recent Graduate Internship”) the completion of your studies. Non-credit internships are recorded in your Diploma Supplement upon successful completion of your internship. Please note that “Recent Graduate Internships” have limited availability - e-mail erasmusutbyte@su.se to ask if funding is still available.
