General information

We are looking to recruit an Erasmus+ trainee who is currently enrolled in a program on bachelor, master level or a recent graduate from a Higher Education Institution with the Erasmus+ charter for a period of around 5 months during the Autumn semester 2020 until January 17 2021, arrival between 21-25 of September 2020.

The Faculty of Arts and Humanities is one of five faculties at Linnaeus University. We offer a flexible and international environment for learning. Together we form a creative and inclusive environment where the relations between staff and students are informal and open. In the Faculty of Arts and Humanities we are currently working on highlighting international possibilities for our students and staff. This means that we are both working on the administrative as well as qualitative input and outcomes involved in student exchanges.

Who are we looking for?
We are looking for someone whose English proficiency level is high and who takes an interest in educational administration with a focus on international work. The potential intern should be able to work independently with projects. The Trainee will be working under the supervision of the Head of Faculty Administration and the Faculty’s International Group. The role will involve training in a genuine university environment, where the candidate is expected to take on some important general administrative tasks as well as independently innovate and lead projects promoting international possibilities for students at the faculty.

The internship is full time, 40 hours per week and will start in the Autumn semester 2020, starting between 21-25 of September. Time for writing a report and relay information about activities back to the home university is included in the time allocated for the traineeship.

This opportunity is open for bachelor and master students or recent graduates from a programme registered in a higher education institution holding an Erasmus+ Charter for Higher Education. Benefits The internship is an unpaid position, Linnaeus University and The Faculty of Arts and Humanities will help with finding accommodation but the Trainee will need to pay for housing and other living expenses.

Endorsment from previous Trainee
"I can highly recommend to apply for an Erasmus+ Traineeship at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at Linnaeus University. It will give you the chance not only to work independently and in an environment which is friendly, open-minded and supportive, but it also gives you a unique insight into University life from a complete different point of view. You won’t be a student attending lectures, but you will be a trainee giving presentations for students to help them making the best out of their study time and international possibilities. The experiences I got are various and inspiring. I could improve my English and Swedish language skills, my presentation skills and I could gain important work experiences helping me later to be more self-confident in taking initiative and coming up with new creative ideas."
