Traineeship abroad is a great way to gain work experience while still studying!

Students going on a traineeship abroad receive 5 ECTS for each completed month of the internship. You can choose from a wide range of our Traineeships programmes according to the country of the placement and character of the Internship:

Erasmus+ Freemovers


Work placements are arranged by students THEMSELVES. Some work placement offers can also be found in the IS (Noticeboard) or through the current traineeship offers from the National Agency.

The work placement must be always arranged as full-time employment; other arrangements cannot be accepted.


  • Learning Agreement for Traineeships

A detailed work plan signed by the student, approved and signed by the Departmental coordinator (guarantor of the work placement) at MU and the responsible representative of the host institution abroad.

The Departmental Coordinator at our Faculty is the Vice-Dean for International Relations, Ing. Markéta Novotná, Ph.D., who approves and signs all Learning agreements. Learning agreements are collected and checked by the International Office so please kindly send them to the Coordinator for Exchange programmes -  Štěpánka Lacková (

  • Letter of Motivation
  • Letter of Recommendation from MU academic staff (academic staff from the study field of the work placement, who CANNOT be the same person as the guarantor of the placement). The recommendation must include how the placement corresponds with the study field of the student and what impact it will have on the student’s expertise.

Before Departure

Before departure, it is important to record your Traineeship in the IS.

After Return

The student will be awarded ECTS credits based on a Seminar paper (Final report), which should be submitted within 3 weeks after completing the Internship.

Students are awarded 5 ECTS for every month of the internship.

The length of the seminar paper depends on the length of the internship. Students submit 3 standard pages for internships up to 2 months (max. 10 ECTS). For longer internships (15 ECTS or more), 5 standard pages are required. The student describes the course of the internship: company description, length of the internship, job content, the eventual impact of the internship on student's studies, positives and negatives, a summary of the internship itself. The seminar work must be written in the same language as used during the internship.

Please send your Final report to the Coordinator for Exchange programmes – Štěpánka Lacková (
