Traineeships at the European Commission

The European Commission has recently announced a new application round for traineeships in 2013. These traineeships provide a unique opportunity to get to know the European Commission and how the various EU institutions operate.

The summer traineeships last from 1st of March 2013 to  31 July 2013 and  last between three and five months. The Commission provides a basic grant for the selected trainees.

In general the candidates are selected from EU member countries and pre-accession strategy countries. However – a limited number of places are offered to non-Europeans based on resource availability. The candidates are expected to have completed university education and have no prior experience in EU traineeship programmes. Please note that knowledge about three Community languages is required.
