INTERNSHIP PROGRAMMES IN ATHENS
The Erasmus+ programme is an educational programme funded by the European Union. It gives university students, vocational students and teachers the chance to participate in mobility and training projects across Europe. Its main aim is to enable European citizens to live, study and work in another European country for a certain period of time.
What are the benefits of an Erasmus+ project?
Experience Athens: a vibrant, hospitable and exciting city, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.
Improve your English: like in most international work settings, we all speak English as the shared European communication language.
Gain job & life skills: become more independent and self-confident, learn how to adapt to a new environment, challenge yourself and return to your home-country with a suitcase full of new life experiences!
Boost your CV: demonstrate to future employers that you are not afraid of trying out something new and that you are capable to work in an international environment.
Make new friends: meet new people from all over the world through HostEd, your workplace and simply by exploring Athens!
Where will my internship take place?
HostEd cooperates with a wide range of companies in Athens that offer short-term and long-term internships to international students and support the Erasmus+ programme.
Depending on your work profile these could be travel agencies, hotels, logistics companies, charity organisations, non-profit organisations, consulting offices, media and IT companies, cultural centres, bakeries or restaurants – we only cooperate with companies that work in an international environment and are able to offer English-speaking tasks and communication.
Please contact us if you have an enquiry for internships in a specific industry.

Minimum age: 18 (some exceptions for 17year-old students can be made)
Minimum English level: B1 (in some cases A2 is sufficient or B2 level required)
Minimum number of participants per group: 3 (contact us to enquire about smaller groups)
An open mind: the ability to adapt to an international environment
