PostSubject: Trainess in -- Luxembourg --    Thu Nov 26, 2015 1:57 pm

Hello everyone

As the majority of trainees is said to be located in Brussels, I thought of setting up a thread to share information among those of us who could (maybe/probably - cf. the discussion in the preselection thread ..) meet up in Luxembourg next March.

Anyone else around yet? Smile

Best regards

Hello!

We could (maybe/probably) meet in Luxembourg! I was "shortlisted" for the General Secretariat of the European Parliament, Directorate-General for Finance, Member's Travel and Subsistence Expenses Unit in LUXEMBOURG.

Have you tried searching for somewhere to stay already? Do you think they will help us with that?

Good luck with the next phase, I'm looking forward to meet you in Luxembourg! Very Happy

Hi! I was almost afraid that there are virtually no people in Luxembourg, so very happy to here that! So (parts of) DG Finance and DG Parliamentary Research Services, at least Smile And as we came to understand in the preselection thread, it looks as if it is more or less a question of formal eligibility now.

I thought of getting into those practical things in January then, when we should have gotten the offer; but would share all the information I get on living on Luxembourg in this thread Smile

(E.g.: There is this "European Parliament Stagiaires Association" organising some events etc. around the internships, but they seem to be focussed on Brussels ? )

All the best!

I'm pretty confident there will be many other people in Luxembourg with us, they probably don't know about this forum. It isn't publicized at all... I myself have found it only a couple days ago.

So... Where are you from? How old are you?

I'm from Italy and I turned 23 yesterday Wink

Just received an e-mail stating that my file is now complete and that I now have to wait for the admission letter in late december! Very Happy

They also suggested that we contact the Parliament's Welcome Desk in Luxembourg - accueillux@europarl[dot]europa[dot]eu - for more information about accomodation there!

Yay! Wink

Anyway I re-checked the FAQ and they say that each year the accept about 360 people. Given that that 10% of the trainees are located in Luxembourg... There should be 30-40 of us in Luxembourg Very Happy

I suggest you contact the Parliament's Welcome Desk in Luxembourg - accueillux@europarl[dot]europa[dot]eu - for more information about accomodation there!
They sent me a huge list of places and owners, I think I'm going to start to contact some of them in late december, after we know something more about our job there.

I think we could also consider sharing an apartment, you can find a room for as little as 300€ if you're okay with that.

Hm slowly but surely there could be a Facebook group for the upcoming year, couldn't it ? Smile Eh and hi hollyingram, nice to meet you in Luxembourg then!
@Michele, are the 360 each year or each half round, as there are two periods? Smile
Best regards!

Hey holly, I noticed you added your Facebook Profile to your account, but the link's not working because the website requires you to only write there the part of the link that follows "facebook.com/"

I also added my FB profile here and sent you a friend request! Wink
