Academic recognition

If you successfully complete an Erasmus+ internship abroad, and the internship is a compulsory part of your degree course or programme, it will be fully recognised by the home institution using ECTS as required by the Training Agreement.

Upon successfully completing an Erasmus+ internship abroad, the home university - as required in the "Training Agreement" - documents this internship stay in the Diploma Supplement (DS).

You may be denied recognition of the educational achievements in the host company if you fail to meet the academic / professional performance level required by the host company or if you have otherwise failed to meet the conditions required by the participating institutions for recognition.
