Happy IAESTE Day, and Happy 70th!

Fri, Oct 20th, 2017

We’ve been counting down all week to today, October 20th: IAESTE Day! It’s our day to celebrate the students, employers and volunteers who make the IAESTE programme so special, and invite them to join us for events ranging from fine dining in Jordan to ‘Back to Prom’ night in Slovenia.

In Ireland, the Irish students who travelled across the world will be enjoying the craic tonight with the international students who are currently working here. You can read about both sides of IAESTE on our blog: from the adventures of a UCD student in Brazil this summer, to the tale of the Indian engineer who got much more than she bargained for when she came to Athlone (and stayed!).

IAESTE Day also kicks off the celebrations for another exciting event: IAESTE’s 70th year!  The programme has been changing the lives of technical students since 1948, and we’re running a competition to celebrate. If you’ve been involved in IAESTE, choose the ONE photo that captures your experience and share it to the brand new IAESTE Ireland Instagram. The best photos will be submitted to the international competition, and be in with a chance of winning a travel voucher for 500 Swiss Francs. So get looking through those photo albums, and make sure to connect with the IAESTE Dublin Local Committee to keep up with the 70th celebrations!
