Internship abroad

© IAESTE LC Potsdam/Franka Thiesen

IAESTE arranges subject-related work placements abroad for students of all technological subject areas and those related to the natural sciences.

Placements both in industry and at research institutes are available. The majority of IAESTE placements last for 2–3 months and frequently take place in summer. In general, the placements are paid, with salaries usually adjusted in line with country-specific student living costs. The IAESTE committee abroad will make suitable living arrangements for you and will be on hand to provide you with guidance at all times. IAESTE Germany will take care of all the necessary formalities on your behalf. For students registered on degree courses in Germany, these services are free of charge. This is made possible thanks to the IAESTE programme’s integration within the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

Several benefits offered by an IAESTE work placement abroad are summarised on the following page.
We also explain the application procedure and provide useful tips for your stay abroad. And, if by chance we haven’t yet been sufficiently persuasive, reading about the experiences of former interns is bound to convince you.
