Each person studying in France is eligible to our program IAESTE France GA.

If you are accepted in an IAESTE internship there are some application fees to pay. It will cost you 65 euros.

You have to bring us an internship offer.

Our association is based on a give and take principle. In the best case scenario, for each French student that goes abroad, we should have an internship in France for a foreign student. That’s why we are looking for internships offers in France.
So if you have some contacts with companies or laboratories thanks to your family, friends, teachers… You could talk to them about our association (we can give you some presentation documents if needed). If you can bring us an interesting and viable offer you will be exempted from all the fees.

The offer has to respect the following conditions:

  • Being in one of the fields we cover
  • Being remunerated
  • Its duration must be between 6 weeks and 1 year
  • Being an exclusive offer to the IAESTE and can’t be published anywhere else.

If you need more information don’t hesitate to contact us.

Unfortunately no, you can’t. It is only possible to apply to one offer at a time. You will need to wait for the answer of the company to apply to another offer.
