What is PEX

The project "Pursuing EXcellence" (PEX) is a co-financed project from the Human Capital Operational Program and it involves the participation of students from Romanian universities in compulsory and additional internships, carried out following the university curriculum. We will implement this project for two years endingin September 2022.

PEX in numbers

166 students started their internship with us and 5 out of the 166 are already engaged in an additional, secondary internship to deepen their knowledge and understanding about their area of study. 159 students are currently enrolled in Undergraduate study programs, and the rest are already studying for their Master’s degree. 

The project's objective is to increase students' participation rate in the internship programs while implementing a partnership between universities and employers in Romania to facilitate the insertion of participants in the labor market after graduating from different academic programs (ISCED 6 and 7).

You can join this project if:

  • You are pursuing undergraduate, master, or postgraduate studies;

  • You are domiciled in Romania, except for Bucharest and Ilfov;
  • You do not have the quality of participant in other POCU projects with European funds for internships;
