To go abroad with IAESTE is and shall remain free of charge!
Since you are usually the only applicant on an internship, we have to ask a deposit of €100 from you.
This is the only way for us to prevent, that students reserve internships and cancel them spontaneously.
A spontaneous cancellation eventually leads to an unused offer and thus one student less going abroad!
The payment of the deposit is the condition for receiving the O-form, which is necessary to apply.
We will return the deposit if you:
- did your internship or got rejected by IAESTE or the employer.
- submitted your experience report on time (8 weeks after the internship ended). We appreciate if you allow us to publish your report on our webpage!
- could not do your internship due to reasons you are not responsible for (sickness, travel warning, visa issues etc.). You have to inform us about such a case as soon as possible, the latest 4 weeks after you got to know about it.
