What is IAESTE?

The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience, Association sans but lucratif (non-profit association), commonly known as IAESTE A.s.b.l. is an association of national committees representing academic, industrial and student interests. We serve 3500+ students, 3000 employers and 1000 academic institutions through career-focused professional internships abroad, social and intercultural reception programmes, international networking and other career and employer branding activities in more than 80 countries worldwide.





On – Site Internship

Our traditional internships offer you the chance to live and work in a foreign country, gain valuable experience, enhance your CV, make new friends from all over the world and have a truly life-changing experience.

Remote Internships

Remote internships offer the chance to gain experience for those that for one reason or another cannot travel. They offer the same real work and expectation but you can do them from the comfort of your own home.
