Great opportunity for graduates- the Leonardo De Vinci Programme 2012. Its not another Dan Brown book but instead a great opportunity for graduates from any degree discipline to get work experience in major European cities.
The Leonardo Da Vinci Programme is a Brussels initiative, co-funded by the EU and ‘host companies in Europe. The programme supports Mobility Projects: European work placements for graduates and school leavers.
The programme consists of a two week language course followed by a ten week multi professional work placement in a European city, departing in September, January or April. The best thing is that while it is not salaried all your expenses are covered. Plus you’ll have a small living allowance.
The only costs to you are:
- Your spending money
- A commitment sum of £150 (and you’ll get that back 3 months after your placement has finished)
And that’s it! Leonardo pays for everything else: flights, insurance, language course… even your accommodation.
Will you qualify for Leonardo funding?
You should be eligible if you can tick all these boxes:
- I’m a British citizen or European National
- I’m legally resident in the UK
- I want to improve my career prospects through vocational training
- I’m not in full-time education
- I’m over 18 years old
