Experience

We are only two trainees in Dublin, but we share a room together. IAESTE organises great weekend events, almost every week. I had the opportunity to try surfing, which was a great experience and without IAESTE, I wouldn't have tried it.

Discover

My first internship was two years ago in Tunis. It changed my life - the way how I see the world. I started to travel more, joined IAESTE, went to Erasmus and applied for a second internship, because I have realised that I love discovering other cultures, not just as a tourist but like locals. And that's possible, if you stay for a longer time, work or study with locals and speak with them.
