Paid traineeships for short periods (one, two or maximum three months) are occasionally available for university students for whom such a traineeship is compulsory for the completion of their studies. In order to be accepted for a short-term traineeship, the applicants must:
- be studying at university or a higher education establishment;
- have a thorough command of one EU language and a satisfactory command of another, one of which must be English or French for operational reasons;
- be a national of a Member State of the European Union. However, a limited number of nationals of non-Member States may also be accepted on condition that the applicant fulfils all legal requirements concerning work and/or residence permits in Belgium.
What do we offer:
- a monthly grant corresponding to 50% of the monthly amount granted to long-term trainees;
- a mobility allowance;
- a travel allowance (if applicable).
Applications are opening soon.
Your application will remain valid for six months. If we are in a position to offer you a traineeship during that period, we will get in touch with you and ask you to submit the following supporting documents:
- a certificate confirming attendance at a university or a higher education establishment,
- proof that such a traineeship is compulsory for the completion of your studies,
- proof of valid health insurance,
- an extract from police records, and
- a medical certificate proving that you are medically fit to carry out the traineeship.
Please note: Short-term traineeships may only start on the 1st or 16th of a given month, except July and August. There will be at least two months between the submission of an application and the start of the traineeship.
