Come to the University of Lille on a traineeship

International students (bachelor’s or master’s level only) have the possibility of completing a traineeship at the University of Lille in one of its many structures: laboratories and research units, central administration and its different departments. In the area of healthcare (pharmacy, medicine and dental surgery), traineeships are available at one of our partner hospitals.

Who can apply?

The University of Lille offers traineeships to the following candidates: 

  • bachelor’s and master’s students
  • students on courses in medicine, pharmacy and dental surgery (hospital traineeships). These candidates must follow a specific procedure: please contact

All students who wish to complete a traineeship (obligatory as part of their curriculum) in France must sign an agreement beforehand. The University of Lille’s traineeship agreement is the only valid document for hosting foreign students, even if the home institute provides its own document. 


  • Laboratory
  • Hospital
  • Administrative department

How to apply?

As part of an inter-university agreement

If you are from a partner university and would like to complete a traineeship (in a hospital or laboratory) as part of the agreement between the two institutes, please follow the application procedure outline on this page.

For Erasmus+ traineeships, a “learning agreement for traineeship” must first be drawn up and signed by your home university and the host structure.

On an individual basis 

  • Step 1: Send your application directly to the structure of your choice: laboratories and research units, central administration or departments (see University organization chart)
    Prepare a CV and an application letter
  • Step 2: If your application is accepted, you will have to draw up a traineeship agreement with your host structure. This is mandatory for your stay at the University of Lille.
