Erasmus Traineeship in Sardinia
The "Erasmus Traineeship in Sardinia" (ETS) programme results from the cooperation between the University of Sassari, the Provincia di Sassari (Provincial Authority), the Comune di Sassari (Municipality of Sassari) and the Camera di Commercio, Industria Artigianato e Agricoltura di Sassari (Chamber of Commerce - C.I.A.A.). This new programme is targeted at university students enrolled in all the countries participating in the Erasmus+ Programme who wish to carry out an internship in companies, institutions, private offices and agencies of North Sardinia.
The ETS call and the list of traineeship available are usually published twice a year and are reserved to university students who have obtained an Erasmus+ Traineeship grant from their university. In each traineeship offer the candidate's requirements, language proficiency, work experience, training activities, the duration (from 2 up to 6 months) and the period of the internship will be specified. Based on the candidate curricula and/or on the results of interviews held via Video Conferencing (i.e., Skype), the University of Sassari and the hosting company/agency will select the suitable applications among the list of eligible students provided by the sending Institution. The selected students will receive a grant by their university for travel and living costs and they should be fully covered by a specific third-party and accident insurance policy provided either by the home institution or by the students. Should the training activities be carried out in a laboratory, the insurance policy must also provide coverage for any accident connected with the use of chemical-biological substances. No financial support will therefore be required to the host institution/company.
Selected students will be enrolled at the University of Sassari and will get a matriculation number. They will be allowed to attend courses and take exams, provided this is compatible with the foreseen internship activity. Free courses of Italian language and culture will also be offered by the University Language Centre. Students who will successfully pass the final exam will receive a certificate reporting the results and the credits obtained (ECTS). At the end of the mobility period, student attendance will be certified in the Transcript of Records, that will include the list of the exams taken, their result, the credits awarded (ECTS) and any research activity performed.
Students will be granted free access to library facilities and wireless connection. They will benefit from several services such as: canteen at reduced fee provided by the Regional Agency for the Right of Study (ERSU); discounts on local public transport; free medical assistance; access to guidance and counseling service; discounts on music and theater tickets and sports activities.
A first reception service and a programme of leisure activities will be offered by the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) association (firstname.lastname@example.org)
