Find out more about an ERASMUS+ Internship at TUBAF

The minimum duration of an Erasmus internship or traineeship is two months. As a trainee you won't be enrolled at TU Bergakademie Freiberg. Therefore, you don't have to apply as if you were an Erasmus student (attending lectures for at least one semester).

The Erasmus internship takes place in one of the six faculties of TU Bergakademie Freiberg. You will need the commitment of an (academic) supervisor. If you need help in finding a supervisor at one of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg faculties, please contact torsten [dot] mayer [at] iuz [dot] tu-freiberg [dot] de (Torsten Mayer) at the International Centre (see contact details below).

We at the International Centre would appreciate it if you would inform us by email about your planned internship in Freiberg as soon as you have received approval for the placement from your supervisor at the faculty. We will be happy to help you with any questions or problems that may arise during your stay in Freiberg.

Participation in the Erasmus programme does not include insurance cover. It is compulsory for Erasmus trainees to be insured against liability for damage caused at work and against accidents at work. This insurance can be taken out by the employer or by the trainee.

In addition, Erasmus trainees (outgoing and incoming) can take out a combined health, accident and personal liability insurance through the group insurance of the German Academic Exchange Service (Tariff 728/D). Condition for conclusion: "The insurance can only be taken out by foreign students who are doing a compulsory internship in Germany as part of their study regulations. Students who are doing a voluntary internship in Germany cannot take out this insurance".
