Calling all 2nd and 3rd year Science, Engineering, Architecture and CMS students: stand out from the crowd!

The Guidance & Employability Team (GET) are pleased to announce that the International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience (IAESTE) will be visiting Medway Campus on Friday 11 October 2013 to talk about gaining work experience abroad with their Technical Experience Exchange Programme.

Come along and hear Hafsa Miah, one of our successful applicants, speak of her time in Qatar. Here is what Hafsa says about her placement:

Hafsa Miah, University of Greenwich IAESTE candidate

" The IAESTE placement programme was an unforgettable experience which I will cherish the rest of my life. The experience I gained from working in an actual lab part of an actual company was invaluable and cannot be compared to the university labs as they are two completely different environments. Being part of such a rich and diverse culture felt truly amazing and was nothing like I had imagined as it was completely different to my own culture and the western culture. I'll never forget the friends I made, the places I went and the immense fun I had whilst abroad. As well as creating the opportunity to return there in the future the IAESTE placement programme has proven to be a truly remarkable opportunity that I believe no student should miss out on. "


Where and when


Friday 11 October 2013, 12pm-1pm and 1-2pm (two sessions, choose which one you prefer).


Room 028, Blake Building, Medway Campus.


More about IAESTE

The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience (IAESTE) is a student exchange programme with over 80 member countries worldwide. Since it was founded at Imperial College London in 1948, IAESTE has exchanged more than 330,000 students, often as the first step in their international careers. Gaining relevant work experience abroad enhances your independence and flexibility, communication and foreign language skills and contributes to your personal and academic development. Employers know that if students have successfully overcome the challenges brought on by international work experience, they will stand out from the crowd at interview.

Important note

IAESTE UK is funded by the UK education departments in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland and these funding bodies expect that we only accept applications from students who are normally resident in the UK. This eligibility would of course include EU citizens who are here for the full duration of their course (e.g. not Erasmus students) and any student who was resident in the UK prior to entering university, regardless of their nationality.
