Benefits of becoming an IAESTE Intern:
Paid professional experience.
An IAESTE internship will be a highlight on your resume whenever you apply for a job. The paid internships provide real work experience directly connected to your studies and are also flexible in terms of how long they are and when they take place.
Boost intercultural competencies.
An IAESTE internship gives you a deep intercultural experience as well as work experience. You will live and work alongside other international students, travel together on the weekends, and discover new destinations. Your IAESTE people will take care of you, so you will be in a safe environment.
International volunteer group.
As an IAESTE intern or volunteer, you become part of the biggest international group you could ever imagine. Taking care of each other, friendship and trust are the core IAESTE values that drive the whole IAESTE community.
Ready to change your life?
'IAESTE changed my life' is what we most often hear from our interns and volunteers. Once you become part of IAESTE you can look forward to immersing yourself in new cultures and working in international environments. You will know how to achieve all of this on your own, boosting your independence and self-esteem.
Contribute to building peace.
IAESTE was established in 1948 in the aftermath of the Second World War, based on the strong belief that building friendships through student exchange would contribute to world peace. IAESTE's mission is to promote international understanding, so by joining us, you help make the world a better place.
International Alumni Network.
