What is IAESTE?

International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience (IAESTE) is a global non-governmental, non-profit organisation. We benefit students, employers and universities through the IAESTE internship programme. Paid internships abroad help students gain professional experience and cross-cultural skills. Employers and universities gain access to talented international interns, who bring new impulses and insights to their business or research. IAESTE provides primarily STEM internships, however we expand to other fields, such as marketing, management and languages.

IAESTE Nigeria

IAESTE Nigeria is a proud member of the IAESTE A.s.b.l. global exchange organization and operates as a non-profit association. Initially affiliated with a founding member of IAESTE in 1948, IAESTE Nigeria focuses on facilitating international internships for students.

Annually, IAESTE Nigeria offers approximately 120 internship opportunities for Nigerian students studying at higher education institutions. Likewise, an equivalent number of internships are provided for international students, giving them the chance to work with approximately 100 Nigerian companies, research institutions, and higher education establishments.



IAESTE Nigeria maintains strong collaborations with numerous technical and further education institutions, universities offering technical and science programs, as well as other higher education institutions across the country. These partnerships play a crucial role in the work of IAESTE Nigeria, with companies, institutions, and associations represented on the board. Such collaborative efforts form a significant foundation for IAESTE Nigeria's operations and achievements.
