Side note

The following web page contains information for students who applied for an IAESTE internship in Cologne via their Local Committee. It is not possible to apply directly for an IAESTE internship in a county that you want to travel to. We kindly ask those who are interested in an internship in Germany to contact the IAESTE National Committee in your country.

What is a "Local Committee" in Germany?

In Germany, IAESTE is organized in various Local Comitees which are mostly consisting of students who contribute to the organization on a voluntary basis. The Local Comitees are responsible for sending students of their region abroad as well as receiving students (interns) from other countries. They also advertise and get in contact with local companies to create new IAESTE internship positions for foreign students in their area.

The overall management of IAESTE in Germany is handled by the National Comitee (NC) in Bonn. They belong to the DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst) and coordinate IAESTE in Germany.
