We consider our services start at the point in which both parties agree to work together. We prepare the official documents according to the intern’s university’s requirements and make sure the intern is accepted to participate in Erasmus.

After the documentation process is completed, we provide basic accommodation information, either offering a safe house or providing other suitable accommodation options.

We also guide our interns in their residence permit applications, explaining the procedures and what to do when.
