2.Traineeship

 

The European Commission traineeship programme is open to university graduates, from all over the world. Traineeships are available in a wide range of fields and offer a great insight into the work of the EU. The content of the job largely depends on the service to which you are assigned. Opportunities are available in the fields of competition law, human resources, environmental policy, communication and many more. Most traineeships last around 5 months, but this can vary, depending on which institution/ agency for which you work.

 

Duty station: Like the majority of EU jobs, most traineeships are based in Brussels or Luxembourg

 

Deadline: not specified

 

Description: Trainees are given the same sort of tasks as newly-recruited graduates. In practice, that can mean organising working groups and meetings, compiling information and documentation, preparing reports and answering queries, as well as participating in unit meetings and other events. There will also be tasks more specific to the particular department – lawyers in the Commission will be doing quite different things to economists at the Court of Auditors or generalists in the Parliament.

 

Open to: Graduates of any discipline can apply as long as their degree has already been awarded (a transcript can normally be provided if the certificate has not yet been awarded).  Unlike permanent positions, EU citizenship is not mandatory (a small number of places are reserved for non-EU citizens), but generally knowledge of two EU languages will be required. Work experience and postgraduate education is a plus, but not usually a necessity.

 

Wage: The majority of traineeships get a monthly grant, of around 1,100€/month and their travel expenses reimbursed.

 

 

Application process: Selection procedures for traineeships are run by the individual EU institutions and agencies. Check Quick Guide to EU Traineeships for more information. Applications are usually online, but paper copies of the application form are sometimes required. In general, applications are accepted about four to nine months before the beginning of the traineeship and applications should be submitted in good time.

From our locations, our students can walk to the most significant historical sites of Rome such as Piazza Navona, St. Peter’s, the Roman Forum and Colosseum, the market of Campo dei Fiori, etc.

 

The school is also easily accessed by public transportation from both the train stations and airports. Students can take just one bus from the Termini Station, the main rail station, from which there is also a direct train or bus for the airports.

 

Thanks to the interactive method we use, the language is not just a set of rules to be learned, but rather an instrument we provide to everyone to communicate, understand and express in everyday Italian life in a short time. The lessons are always really connected to everyday life: the language is the key to understand other cultures. Welcoming atmosphere of Italiaidea helps students throughout staying in Rome.
