To me, AIESEC brings together many elements that I’m passionate about: leadership opportunities, work experience, meeting people abroad, and exploring a new environment. I’m interested in medicine and chose Indonesia because working somewhere with a high HIV rate could give me a new, broader understanding of public health. The community I lived in gave me a revived sense of purpose, and the modest living conditions of the people I encountered fostered a new-found appreciation for simple living.

There are 4 types of internships:
- Management Traineeship (might include HR, marketing, sales, accounting)
- Technical Traineeship (might include engineering, design, coding)
- Development Traineeship (might include NGOs, community volunteer, social work)
- Educational Traineeship (might include language teaching, cultural education)
Do I need to look for living accommodations myself?
No, you do not need to. The local committee at the city you will be traveling to will take care of all accommodations. The great thing about doing an internship through AIESEC is that local AIESECers will assist you during the internship, so you don’t have to worry!
More concretely, the members of this hosting local committee organize your accommodation, pick you up from the airport / station, show you around in the city and accompany you to work on your first day. In addition, they will integrate you into their activities, organize events for you and the other interns and help you get to know the people and culture of your host country. If there should be any problems, there will always be someone to help you. We will keep in contact with you and support you in every possible way.
Is there a fee for obtaining the internship?
Yes, there is an initial application fee and once you obtain an intership, there are additional fees depending on the country and duration.
How long are the internships?
Internships range from 6 weeks to 18 months.
How does AIESEC differ from other providers of internships?
AIESEC does not define itself as provider of internships only. Rather, AIESEC offers you many different opportunities to discover and develop your potential. Although an internship abroad is an essential part of the experience you can gain in AIESEC, it is closely linked to other experiences rather than separated from them.
What does the AIESEC Exchange Program offer?
The AIESEC Exchange Program offers you the possibility to have an intense cultural experience in one of its 110 member countries. AIESEC in your home country prepares you for the internship, while the section in the host country helps you apply for visa and work permit and organizes your accommodations. In addition, the host committee take care of you as soon as you are there, familiarizing you with the culture and organizing events where you can get to know other interns.
