The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience (IAESTE) has over 60 years experience in arranging international paid, course-related work placements for technical students in over 80 countries. In the UK, IAESTE is managed by British Council.
IAESTE placements are:
• paid (hurrah!)
• in over 80 countries
• course related
• culturally enriching
• real work
• not simply foreign language focused

IAESTE are looking for highly motivated undergraduates, normally resident in the UK, and in their 2nd year and above, to undertake a period of work experience of 6–12 weeks in summer 2013.
Placements will involve real work on industry projects or research related to your studies. You will receive a salary to cover your living costs, accommodation will be arranged for you, a summer social programme and local support will be provided and assistance given should you need a visa or work permit.
