European 'Traineeships' are part of the European Incoming Exchange programme and allow students from EU universities to undertake a placement anywhere in Europe. Students may apply for placements in many types of organisation not just at universities. Placements must last at least 2 months and count towards the home degree programme. These placements would usually be unpaid placements.
If you are interested in undertaking a traineeship at Durham University, you must meet the following eligibility:
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your traineeship request. This will then be sent to the department indicated. We cannot guarantee that a traineeship will be approved.
If you do not receive a response within 4 weeks of submitting your application you should assume that on this occasion you have been unsuccessful in securing a traineeship. If you are successful then an application form will be emailed to you.
University accommodation at Durham University is very limited due to high demand, therefore we are unable to offer university managed accommodation to incoming European students. Students will be required to source their own accommodation on the private market. Students who live in private accommodation are still a member of a College and we will let you know which College you have been allocated to.
