Erasmus Traineeships

International Education at the University of Copenhagen administers Erasmus Traineeships.

You can find a link to Internationa Education's website though the link below to Traineeships at the University of Copenhagen.

At the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences Erasmus+ Traineeships must be arranged directly with a specific department or research group. This means that you are responsible for the initial contact to the relevant professor, researcher or research group and for planning the Erasmus+ Traineeship.

You should have a clear motivation and argumentation for your traineeship when initiating contact.

Unfortunately, Guidance & Internationalisation at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences cannot assist you in finding relevant research groups.

Please note: Erasmus Trainees are not allowed to sign up for courses.


Due to very limited capacity the University of Copenhagen does not have the capacity to help you organise a clinical internship.

The hospitals are not part of the University of Copenhagen and, therefore, you cannot be enrolled in classes nor receive signatures/stamps on documents from the university upon completing a clinical rotation.

Most hospital departments only accept exchange students. This means that your home university must have an exchange agreement within medicine with the University of Copenhagen.
