1.4 Selection of Trainees


Process of choosing the most suitable participants according to quality criteria set by the sending organization.


This process is necessary since there might be more applicants than available placements and it is desirable to give this opportunity to trainees who will gain the most from this opportunity.


By applying certain criteria established by the sending partner.

Although each sending organization will have its own selection criteria, the final selection is usually based on the information provided in the letter of application and personal interview, the evaluation of the teaching team and the academic results.

In general, it is considered that the trainee with the best academic results is not necessarily the best suited for the internship abroad, other personal characteristics such as open-mindedness or self-confidence being considered as important.
