OVERVIEW

IAESTE is for students who are currently enrolled, preferably in the third year or above, in technical courses like Engineering, Science or IT in third-level institutions in the Republic of Ireland. Graduates can apply within the first year of their graduation. You can apply online between September and December each year. Traineeships can last from two to 12 months and be hosted in any IAESTE country other than Ireland.

COSTS

IAESTE Ireland has an application fee and a further placement fee when you accept a traineeship, to contribute to the running costs of the programme. IAESTE trainees pay their own travel costs, including any fees for visa or work permits. All trainees must have valid international health insurance before travelling.

BENEFITS

IAESTE places you in a different country and work culture, enhancing your technical, professional and intercultural skills at the same time! Trainees are paid by their employers in line with local norms, and in most cases accommodation is arranged before you arrive. Most IAESTE countries have active local volunteers who will meet you on arrival, show you around, and set up social events. Many trainees have gone on to full-time employment with their host employers or in their host countries as a result of their IAESTE experience.

The personal and professional links you can make with international employers,universities and other trainees is one of the most long lasting benefits of IAESTE. There is an active Alumni network who exchange job and networking opportunities.

The main thing that I learned from my IAESTE internship is that different cultures do things differently and there is no correct way of doing things in terms of life or work' - Edwin Henry, China 2017 #EXCHANGE #workabroad #travelphotography
