The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience (IAESTE) provides cutting edge, paid industry placements for international students in the UK and for UK students in over 80 countries worldwide.
Since 1948, over 350,000 students from the fields of science, engineering, technology and applied arts have taken part in the programme. Students can kick-start their careers through the programme, while the added challenge of working abroad allows them to build confidence, develop a global network of friends, and gain valuable skills.
IAESTE has also played an invaluable role for businesses and univeristies. The programme helps them to recruit top students and fill skills gaps on short and long-term projects, and to benefit from trainees' ideas and language skills.
The British Council manages IAESTE UK with support from the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Department of Education of Northern Ireland.
