ERASMUS Internship Opportunity

The International Relations Office at the University of Salzburg is pleased to be able to offer the opportunity to complete a traineeship within the Erasmus exchange programme during summer semester 2020 and winter semester 2020/2021.

The traineeship requires participation in the organisational intricacies of the exchange programmes offered at the university. Language competence in spoken and written German and English must exceed C1.

The duration of the traineeship in the summer semester 2020 would ideally begin as early as possible and can end by 31st July 2020. It would be beneficial for us if the trainee in the winter semester 2020/2021 could start on 1st September 2020 at the earliest.

Funding within the framework of the Erasmus programme, as granted by the sending institution, is a prerequisite for this traineeship. The successful applicant will not receive payment from the University of Salzburg for this role.

Please send your detailed application, including a cover letter and CV, by email until the 9th February 2020 to Petra Höpfner.

For further enquiries please contact as well Mrs. Petra Höpfner.

The Orientation period for Erasmus and Exchange Students who will study at the University of Salzburg in the upcoming summer semester 2020, will start on Monday, February 17th and end on Friday, February 28th 2020. It is an essential event at the beginning of your studies here. Your participation is not mandatory, but we highly recommend you take part in these activities. You are going to receive important information with regard to the admission process, course selection and registration. You will get an overview on university facilities, student life, organizations, etc. Above all, you have the great opportunity to meet each other before the start of courses, as there are social events also included in the orientation programme. The orientation sessions are going to take place at different places (more or less in the old town) and at different times (before and after noon).

The registration (see sign-up sheet below) is available until February, 24th!
