Every year we travel to other countries to give DN Colleges students the experience of working and living abroad.

Co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union

We are committed to providing students with opportunities to gain global employability skills and an increased awareness of the value of international experiences.

These experiences allow students to broaden their horizons by travelling to one of our partners in Europe on 2-week Erasmus+ fully funded trips to participate in work placements with companies overseas.

Our students return with new skills, confidence and independence as well as valuable training in the very subject they are studying in college. This is a great addition to their CVs and an increase in their employability as well as being a rewarding cultural experience.

This year, for the first time for our students, they can work and live overseas for 3 months on Erasmus+ VET Pro mobilities. Contact the international office for further details.

Upcoming Opportunities

Currently activities are postponed whilst we await guidance regarding Covid-19.

Plans for future opportunities for Erasmus+ 2 week International work experience and Erasmus Pro 3 month placements include locations in Portugal, Germany, Finland, Sweden and France.
