Many facts speak in favour of the participation in the IAESTE program:

  • You will receive an additional employee, whose qualifications and length of stay you will determine. IAESTE places only students that have completed their basic studies; these trainees are therefore advanced in their studies and have fundamental knowledge that often has been strengthened in previous internships in their home country. IAESTE presents you a suitable candidate – you have the last word!
  • The trainees have very good foreign language skills – they speak, among others, fluent English – for a regular assistance. Your current employees have a new, interesting discussion partner.
  • You will later have helpful contact persons abroad, who have experienced Germany. Your trainees may be your future business partners.
  • You will actively contribute to the international understanding among nations. Germany's image is characterized by the Second World War and the media reports about new hostility towards foreigners. A trainee that has experienced Germany can confront this experiences with the media reports in their own countries.
  • You will also make it possible for German students to gain international work experience. For every internship placement offered by you we will in return receive a corresponding offer for a German student from our partners abroad.
  • The employment of a foreign trainee does not cause you any additional organizational expenses. IAESTE takes care of all the necessary formalities, including visa issues, work permit and insurance, as well as accommodation and activities.
  • The services of IAESTE are free of charge. Usually the IAESTE trainees are freed from the wages tax and are not subject to social insurance contributions. The health, accident and personal liability insurance of the trainees will be taken care of by the DAAD.
