Offer a work experience to an international student and let your students know about traineeship opportunities abroad. 

Host an international trainee on your campus

With a pool of 10,000 high-calibre trainees from 80 countries, hosting a trainee is a great way to bring fresh skills and perspectives to your science, engineering, technology and applied-arts faculties. It is also a chance to build relationships with international students and universities. 

The programme is reciprocal - for every placement offered at your campus, one of your own students will be offered a placement overseas. (However your students can still apply for IAESTE whether you host a trainee or not).

To find out more about hosting a trainee, please visit https://www.britishcouncil.org/iaeste and apply by Friday 15 December 2017.
