The International Education and Grants Office at the University of Copenhagen administers Erasmus Traineeships. To find out whether you are eligible to apply and to read more about the application procedure, please see the University of Copenhagen's portal for international students.
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, the International Relations Office 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 space in our clinics, we do not accept Erasmus traineeship students in dentistry.
Individual clinical rotations at one of the hospitals as an Erasmus Trainee can only take place during the summer holiday when the clinical departments do not teach Danish medical students: from approximately mid-June to mid-September.
The duration of the traineeship must be at least two months.
Applicants must arrange their traineeship directly with the clinical hospital department. The following two links will lead you to the hospitals’ websites in the Capital Region of Denmark and Region Zealand.

Please note that the International Relations Office cannot help students find a relevant department or researcher.
The application procedure is the same as for other fields and is described on the University of Copenhagen's portal for international students.
