IAESTE offers undergraduate students the opportunity to gain valuable work experience abroad.. 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 not only enhances your independence, flexibility, communication and foreign language skills but also 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 interviews. The majority of traineeships take place in the summer months although longer periods are also available.
Operating in over 80 countries, IAESTE can send you to parts of the world you never even thought about! All IAESTE traineeships are paid, course related and give you the chance to fully immerse yourself in a new country and culture. IAESTE trainees are part of a world-wide network and are supported through the entire application process. From work permits and visas, to accommodation and a social program, IAESTE makes it easier for you to get on with developing your skills and enjoying new cultures.


You must be currently enrolled full-time in a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree at the time of application and be studying one of the applicable disciplines.


While most positions require English, other language skills are sometimes preferred.


Most placements are for 6-12 weeks during the summer, but longer term placements are also available throughout the year (24 - 52 weeks).
