IAESTE (The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience) Malta forms part of an international organisation (IAESTE a.s.b.l).  We aim to provide paid course-related work experience to University students.

This includes sending students studying in Maltese institutions on internships abroad, whilst welcoming foreign students in Malta who complete their internships with local employers.  As an organisation we offer various fulfilling roles in the team and enjoy a number of fun team building events throughout the year.

Being part of IAESTE Malta means being a part of a global community whose culture embodies core values of career growth, travel, and human connections around the world. We are not bound to a single faculty but represent students of multiple faculties at University.  

Moreover, we reward students joining our team by giving them additional points to go up on an internship with IAESTE. More information can be found at www.iaeste.org.mt.
