The vocational internships are integral parts of the ESCI curriculum.

• Information
Information meetings concerning mobility abroad are held regularly. The ‘Getting Started’ session, which is offered at the beginning of the academic year, provides you with general information.
Other, more specific sessions with particular subjects (how to finance the study period abroad, how to fill in the application, all about paperwork [specific Erasmus documents], etc.) follow throughout the semester. Each student will be provided with relevant written documents which are also available at the IRO.
Furthermore each student can ask for a personal meeting with the staff of the office.
• Validate the Missions
Once you have been in contact with the company abroad you are interested in you have to make an appointment with the Director of International Relations at ESCI to discuss the several missions and outcomes.
Once the internship approved, a specific training contract has to be signed by you, your home and host institution.
• Recognition
The vocational internship is an integral part of the ESCI curriculum.
The credits you obtain in the company abroad for your successfully undertaken mission are fully recognised and integrated in your ESCI transcript of records.
Please bear in mind that you have to obtain an official proof from your host institution that you stayed in the company for the whole mobility period as indicated in your training agreement in order to be awarded the corresponding credits. Make sure that all relevant documents have been sent to ESCI.
• Application for Erasmus Grants
The Erasmus programme is funded by the European Commission which provides grants to outgoing students based on the number of months the student will be doing an internship in a company abroad. These grants are supposed to help them to cover additional costs related to the mobility (travel or subsistence costs). In 2012/13 the monthly amount is 350€ for an internship between 3 and 12 months. If your placement takes place in one of the eligible countries for the Erasmus programme you can apply for Erasmus grants.For all details please refer to the official Erasmus information guide or ask your International Relations Office for advice.It is important that you apply for Erasmus grants as soon as possible in order to sign the Erasmus training agreement BEFORE your mobility starts.
• Selection Procedure
The eligible students will be invited to complete an internal application form. A selection committee will select those students who will be given a financial support. The application for grants is strongly competitive. We select students based on academic results, motivation and character.
Once accepted the student has to complete an official Erasmus training agreement where the total amount of the grant for the mobility period will be indicated.
• Required Documents
Before, during and after your internship required forms have to be completed carefully.
The Training Agreement, the Certificate of Attendance and the Erasmus Internship Report Form are essential documents which frame your Erasmus mobility. If you fail to submit these documents you may be asked to repay your grants.
• Visa Requirements
If you need a visa to go abroad, please bear in mind that the paperwork takes time. You must request the document in time at the relative consulate in your country.
EU/EEA countries: If you do not have EU/EEA nationality, you must apply for a visa to study or work in your host country. If you have EU/EEA nationality you don’t need a visa. But we advise you to ask you host institution if a resident permit must be obtained after your arrival.
Bear in mind that you need a passport to apply for a visa! The costs and the requirements for obtaining a visa vary from one country to another. Start early to assemble the documents in order to have sufficient time for lengthy procedures.
• Monitoring/ Mentoring
During your stay abroad the International Relations Office will be in contact with you in a very regularly way to provide support and guidance.
We want to be sure that you adapt quickly and that your study period abroad or your placement runs well. For this purpose we ask you to provide us with short monthly reports containing information about your new learning environment, your integration, academic progress but also difficulties in order to advise you or help you if necessary. Please don’t hesitate to contact us by e-mail or by phone whenever necessary.
• Reports
If you go abroad in the framework of the Erasmus programme you will be required to submit different administrative documents before, during and after your mobility. Even if it is your responsibility to provide all required documents in time we will remind you the different deadlines in order to make a success of your period abroad.
Moreover each student studying abroad or doing an internship must provide brief monthly reports which allow us to stay in contact and to show improvement and progress within your mobility.
