Erasmus Programme (Work Abroad)

Work in Europe

Work or language assistant placements which are part of your degree programme may be funded through Erasmus allowing you to live and work in another European country.

The work placement should be recognised by Queen's as part of your degree programme and will need to be approved by your School.

Michael Rauch - Haga, Gothenburg: - This photo was taken on a cold February morning in the Haga area of Gothenburg. One of my favourite Swedish traditions was “Fika”, which essentially meant taking a break (even during group work) to have coffee & cake. Haga is one of the best places in the city to have Fika, and you can get cinnamon swirls the size of your head!
