Fully-funded Erasmus+ Internship Programme
3 month Erasmus+ internship in Spain, Portugal or Ireland fully-funded by the European Union
Our Erasmus+ programme is in operation and currently sending candidates to all countries. We closely monitor and follow all UK and participating countries governments, FCO and Erasmus+ advice and rules.
After a year in lockdown and fierce competition in the job market, why not get out to Dublin, Portugal, or Spain for some international work experience? Erasmus+ offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to launch your career in Digital Marketing, TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) or Hospitality.
You get to travel, meet new people, experience different cultures, and get a change of scenery for a while. Not to mention your CV gets a little something to make you stand out from the crowd. So why not apply?
While Erasmus+ is an EU funded programme, all placements and funds are guaranteed until December 2021!
Meaning, for this year at least, you can still take advantage of this fantastic opportunity where flights, accommodation, insurance, work placement, support and mentoring throughout your placement are all included!
Erasmus+ offers you a unique opportunity to boost your employability, become more independent, possibly learn a new language (depending on the country of your placement), develop new skills and even earn credits towards a BTEC level 3 qualification.

Spend three months in the "World's most leading city" according to the World Travel Awards in 2018. Lisbon's beautiful cobbled streets are nestled in amongst the city's famous seven hills, each of which offers a scenic panorama of the Rio Tejo. By day Lisbon is a charming and quaint city perfect for lovers of the laid back cafe culture. At night the town comes to life as jovial locals and visitors make use of the absence of laws prohibiting consuming alcohol on the streets.

Placements take place throughout the year, meaning we operate a rolling application process to accommodate several departure dates. Even though our 2021 departure dates are still COVID dependent, our first cohort has already departed at the end of April, and we have limited spaces left to take advantage of an Erasmus+ work placement experience!
We process applications on a first-come, first-serve basis, and if your application is successful, we will help you start preparing for your placement.
You will have to complete compulsory onboarding training with Twin and complete your chosen course credits before starting your placement. The training, usually taking place at our Greenwich school, due to COVID-19, is now delivered remotely and, depending on your course, can take between 3 and 5 days to complete.
No need to worry about venturing out on your own to a new country. We look after our people and provide 24/7 support before and during your Erasmus+ placement. A member of our team will even fly out with you, introduce you to your company and assist with the transition into living abroad.
The Erasmus+ programme is a fantastic opportunity to develop your work skills, confidence levels, and employability prospects. Of course, you'll also have lots of fun, and you'll get to meet new people and make friends.
