Students at the Iceland University of the Arts can apply for an Erasmus+ grant to complete an internship in Europe for a minimum of two months.
For a shorter stay, students can apply for a Nordplus grant for internships in the Nordic and Baltic region, for a period of one to eight weeks.
In both cases the internship must contribute to the student’s professional development in relation to their studies.
Students can apply for grants for an internship during the summer break, which will render 2 ECTS that will appear on the student’s transcript of records.
Internships during studies
Two study programmes, Theatre and Performance Making and Contemporary Dance, offer internships as a part of the study programme for up to 30 ECTS (the equivalent of one semester). The internship will appear on the student’s transcript of records.
Internships post graduation
Graduating students can apply for an ERASMUS+ grant to complete an internship after graduation. It is important to apply for the grant before graduation, and the grant has to be used within 12 months from graduation. The minimum placement period is two months and the internship must contribute to the students’ professional development in relation to their studies. Interns do not receive credit points for this type of internship but will receive a document stating acquired knowledge and skill.
