Application Requirements

If you would like to particpate in an Erasmus+ traineeship at the Medical University of Graz, the following criteria need to be fulfilled:

  • Minimum duration of the traineeship: Two entire months = 9 weeks (Start is always on a Monday, End always on a Friday) - 8 weeks would not be enough
  • Enrollment as a student at an European university. A nomination by your home university is not necessary
  • A bilateral Erasmus agreement between our universities is not necessary, nevertheless, students from partner universities are preferred when it comes to scarce placings.


Students and graduates interested in an ERASMUS+ Practical Placement at the Medical University of Graz within the framework of the ERASMUS+ Program: please send an email to the contact mentioned on the right side of this website to begin the placement process.

The request should be sent 7 to 8 months before the start of the traineeship at the latest and contain the placement period as well as the desired departments, a CV, a letter of motivation and a language certificate for English and/or German.
