In this context, it encourages and promotes the realization of various international internship modalities, according to the objectives and profile of the student, within the framework of the Erasmus Programme, Free Mobility or the Curricular Internship Programme in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Students taking these placements may, for this purpose, benefit from an Erasmus grant if the internship is carried out in a country covered by this program (eg Member States of the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Macedonia, Turkey), as well as a possible reduction of tuition fees during the mobility period.
