The lists are informative only. Please contact your Faculty/Academic coordinator for available places.


Students participating in one-cycle teacher training programme can choose from which major they apply to the mobility, depending on whether the partner institution offers suitable courses for the training.

Help on how to find a traineeship:

1. A regularly updated list about institutions and companies with established dialogue (where previous ELTE students have worked and further ELTE students are welcome). 
(Please pay attention to the column called "Year of the traineeship". This indicates the year when an ELTE student proceeded internship at the host institution. The earliest the year the more likely that the contact person and the contact details ar outdated. Should you be interested in any of the institutions, please always check their current contact information.)

Evaluation of the applications

Submitted applications are evaluated by a professional board, stood up by the Institute/Department.
The evaluation criteria are published in the call.
The student might be required to participate at a personal interview after receiving the written evaluation.

General criteria of the evaluation (the list is not in a priority order, there might be other aspects as well according to differing Faculty regulations):

  • Language proficiency at the study field,
  • Academic achievement,
  • Professional awareness,
  • Academic excellence or other significant professional achievement,
  • Participation in Student Union activities or others at related organizations,
  • Participation in a Student Mentor/Buddy System, supporting students.

Those students who have never participated in the Erasmus+ Programme have priority during the evaluation process, however, we strongly encourage the re-application of former Erasmus + students too.

Based on the above points, the Institutes/Departments nominate students to the Erasmus Board (for study tours, internships and financial grants).

Those students, who were nominated by the host university but were not granted financial support by the Erasmus Board, might also travel to participate in the Erasmus programme, but they need to fully cover their costs. These students are named “label students”. Thanks to this status, students are free from any payment at the host university, i.e. label students do not need to pay tuition fee and any costs of registration, exams, laboratory and library.

The full list of the accepted students will be approved by the Students and Staff Mobility Committee expectedly in the second half of April 2021.
Supported students will be informed via Neptun message and via e-mail not later than 3 weeks after the Committee’s decision.
(To see the result you have to login to Neptun.)
All the applications for internships submitted later will be approved by Students and Staff Mobility Committee every 2 months, thus it is still possible to apply for Erasmus+ traineeships after 1 March 2021. Supported students will be informed by the Faculty/Academic international coordinator.


The supported students will be nominated by Institutes/Departments at the partner institution. We would like to call the students’ attention that the nomination process and deadlines are varying in every host institution/university, thus we suggest to obtain informations about the nomination deadlines of the host institution and make sure that you are nominated at the right partner institution. 

The partner institution always confirm whether or not can receive you for the semester and the programme that you have applied for. 


The impact of the coronavirus pandemic can be felt in all areas of life, this is not different when it comes to international mobilities either. All international, national and academic organizations involved in the Erasmus+ programme are working to continue to ensure the realisation of mobilities while responding flexibly to changes caused by the epidemiological situation, with the interests of students in mind.
From the autumn semester of 2020, it is possible to implement fully physical or blended (mobility consist of virtual and physical component) mobilities. It is considered to be purely physical mobility when a student spends all of his / her mobility in the host country and fulfills his / her mobility obligations from there (either through attendance education / work or online education / work). Blended mobility is when the student spends part of his / her mobility time in the host country (minimum 2 months for internships and minimum 3 months for study mobility) and the other part in Hungary/home country (virtual component). Therefore fulfills his / her mobility obligations partly virtually. However, the monthly scholarship is granted only for the period spent physically abroad. 
If your mobility fails due to the epidemiological situation and costs associated with mobility (booking / insurance / flight ticket) have already been incurred an individual equity claim (vis maior) can be submitted to cover them. 
If you have to interrupt the physical part of your mobility due to changes in the epidemiological situation, you can also submit the individual equity claim (vis maior) to reimburse your costs. More information about the individual equity request and fresh coronavirus information here. Please, visit it frequently in all stages of your application.
