Much has been made of the need for students to gain relevant work experience before they graduate. IAESTE not only provides internship 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 science, engineering, technology and applied arts undergraduate students in the second year of study and above. The majority of these placements are for 6 to 12 weeks in the summer months, although longer periods are occasionally available.
