Posted By: medvidek (Nezapomen na radost) on 'ForeignJobs' Title: IAESTE Date: Thu Jan 11 11:53:46 2001 I think we could write english on this board, even if it won't be completely correct. So, briefly about IAESTE (The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience). Some information is on its home page www.iaeste.org, www.iaeste.cz. I'll write my experiences with IAESTE. Thank to IAESTE I spent 11 weeks in Norway last year. First you have to register as an applicant for the exchange program and then pass a language exam (English or German). You get some points for it. Other points you can get for marks at the university, successes in your field of study, work for IAESTE, etc. Then a waiting list in your local IAESTE centre is created. All applicants can choose five from all traineeships gained for the Czech Republic. Then a national commitee of IAESTE is arranged and representatives of your local centre try to gain the selected traineeship for you. I don't know the system but it is dependent on number of your points. If you are lucky, you can go abroad. It is easy to obtain all permitions of alien offices of the foreign country, usually there are no problems. Another chance how to obtain a traineeship if you weren't successful is to obtain a post-commitee traineeship. It is a traineeship gained by the Czech IAESTE after the national commitee. To these traineeships no rules apply and faster wins. The only condition is that you are registered as an applicant and you passed the language exam. If you want to know more, ask me. medvidek -- Hi!
