How it works

Students from non-member countries can apply for the internships found on this website (Please follow the steps outlined below) and in many cases, employers can still offer internships.

Step 5 - Acceptance & DepartureArrow dropdown

Once the nomination is completed and uploaded to the EP, it will be shared with the receiving country and the employer. The receiving IAESTE committee or the employer might want to conduct an interview with the student. Unless students were contacted by the receiving committee or employer directly, they are not allowed to contact them. If they do, they might be excluded from the IAESTE internship programme. Once the nomination has been shared with the receiving committee, the student should receive the final decision in max. 8 weeks. If not, they are allowed to cancel their nomination and apply for another internship. Once accepted, the students should follow the instructions of the receiving committee. They should confirm their wish to undertake the internship within 2 weeks. If a visa or work permit is required, they should start the process as soon as possible. All students are required to purchase health insurance which covers their free time during the duration of their internship. Students are asked to submit their arrival details on time so that the receiving country can make all necessary arrangements to welcome them.

Step 6 - During & after internshipArrow dropdown

IAESTE supports the intern during the internship by helping with the reception and also organising the social events. In case of any problems they can always reach us for some tips or in case of emergency. After the internship they'll be asked to complete a feedback form to help us to evaluate their internship as we are always trying to improve our performance and reach the highest standards. The report should be submitted within 4 months after the end of the internship. Afterwards, they will be issued with a certificate that confirms their participation in the programme
