If your home university has an Erasmus Charter, you may be eligible to undertake training through an Erasmus traineeship at the University of Copenhagen.
The Erasmus Traineeship must be of a duration of minimum 2 months and maximum 12 months pr. study cycle (BA, MA, Ph.D.). The same student may receive grants for mobility periods totalling up to 12 months maximum pr. cycle of study (traineeship and studies).
An Erasmus Traineeship must be arranged in direct contact with a department or research group at the University of Copenhagen. This means that students are responsible for the initial contact to the relevant professor, researcher or research group and for planning the Erasmus Traineeship.
The International Education office cannot help students find a relevant professor, researcher or research group.

Please note that students must have a clear motivation and argumentation for doing the Erasmus Traineeship before the initial contact to the relevant professor, researcher or research group is made.
When both the student and the relevant contact person at the University of Copenhagen have agreed upon doing the Erasmus Traineeship, a Learning Agreement for Traineeship must be filled out and signed by the student, the home university, and the UCPH department or head of research group responsible for hosting the student.
Once we have received a fully signed Traineeship Agreement we will register the student and the student will receive a letter of admission with information regarding access to KUnet, UCPH e-mail account, student ID card etc.
Please note that Erasmus Traineeship students are not allowed to sign up for courses.
Individual clinical rotations at one of the University Hospitals as an Erasmus Traineeship student can only take place during the summer holiday (approx. from mid-June to mid-September) when the clinical departments do not teach Danish medical students. Please note the traineeship must be of a duration of minimum 2 months.
Students must arrange the clinical placements over the summer break directly with the clinical departments. The general procedure is as outlined above.
