TUHH Internship Programmes:

Erasmus Traineeship

Students coming to TUHH from ERASMUS partner universities, are regular interns at departments of TUHH – with the exception that they receive a grant from their home university through the ERASMUS student mobility for traineeship programme (SMP or SMT). No bilateral ERASMUS agreement is needed.
ERASMUS traineeship (SMP/SMT) is not to be confused with ERASMUS student mobility for studies (SMS), also called ERASMUS student exchange.
The Learning Agreement of ERASMUS Traineeship has to be signed by the direct supervisor  (member of the TUHh department) of the internship.
The Registration at TUHH- in order to get access to the Campus infrastructure- will be as Guest Researcher,  no matter what level of expertise you have (student, PhD candidate, Postdoc, Professor). Please contact: the STUDIS department /Mrs Hennke/Room 0026/SBC 95E who  will help you to carry out your registration procedure.

Please, be aware that the German minimum wage regulation applies to ERASMUS interns as well! The Internship is exempt from the minimum wage regulation if it is marked as being part of the curriulum at the home university, in the ERASMUS learning agreement for traineeships.
