IAESTE (The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience) is an organisation for the exchange of students wishing to obtain technical experience abroad. In Finland the IAESTE programme is administered by CIMO.
Participation in an IAESTE exchange programme is open to students attending courses at universities, institutes of technology and similar institutions of higher education. A traineeship must be related to the trainee's field of study. Students should apply through the IAESTE office in their own country - please see the "IAESTE Countries" -link below for more information.
IAESTE Finland arranges about 60-100 offers per year and exchanges per year with about 40 IAESTE countries on a reciprocal basis. The training periods mainly take place in the summer, and normally last from 8 to 12 weeks.
