Who We Are

The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience (IAESTE) is an independent, non-profit, student run exchange organisation. It provides students in technical degrees with paid, course-related, training abroad. With over 80 member countries and exchanging over 4000 job offers each year worldwide, it is the largest organisation of its kind in the world.

IAESTE is open to students in technical fields such as engineering, sciences and architecture, and students must have completed their 3rd year of studies prior to undertaking a traineeship. Traineeships can be from as little as 4 weeks up to a whole year, however most positions are 3-6 months. All traineeships are paid, and accommodation and visas are arranged by IAESTE, both in Australia and the host country. The international IAESTE network also means you will have an instant group of contacts and friends when you arrive!

An IAESTE traineeship is a great way to earn while you learn as well as being a fantastic opportunity to travel and meet fellow students from all around the world!
