Information for Students
In an increasingly competitive job market, much has been said about the need to gain relevant work experience before graduation. IAESTE not only provides traineeship experience but also the valuable experience of working abroad.
Work experience gained abroad enhances your independence and flexibility, communication and foreign language skills, and contributes to your personal and academic development. Employers know that if students have successfully overcome the challenges brought on by international work experience, they will stand out from the crowd at interview.
IAESTE is open to degree level science, engineering, technology and applied arts students in the second year of study and above. The majority of traineeships take place in the summer months, although longer periods are also available.
IAESTE can also provide you with the opportunity to gain valuable volunteering experience in one of our many local committees. Joining IAESTE is joining a world-wide community of like-minded students, willing to take on new and exciting challenges in a fast changing world.
