The IAESTE National Committee in Poland is 100% student run and it is not part of any government institution.
The office of the National Committee is located in Warsaw. There are 12 Local Committees at the largest Universities of Technology in Poland, all of which are run by students only. In few cities, there is more than one Local Committee, because there is more than one University involved in the IAESTE programme.
The members of local committees are responsible for arranging your accommodation and picking you up when you arrive to the city of destination. They will also introduce you to the employer at your first day of the traineeship. Local committee’s contact information is printed on the form “O”. However, please remember that you can contact them only after you will receive your acceptance papers. We will do our best to make your stay in Poland a great and memorable experience. :)
“Well intership in Poland was amazing! I worked at Biotech Consulting, I had the opportunity to work with smart people, I was International affairs Assistant, I worked updating database from company, with information about South American companies who works in biothechnological field, I also contact this companies and invited them to participate in Bioforum, the biggest international event of biotechnology in Central Europe. I learn a lot during my internship, also I improve my english and learn some polish- I’m fascinated with this language. This was the best experience ever, and opened many doors to my development as professional.”
“In the summer of 2014 I had one of the most life-changing experiences that I have lived so far: the opportunity of doing an IAESTE internship abroad! in the Headquarters of Asseco Poland, located in Rzeszow, Poland
If you're thinking about going to Poland for an IAESTE internship, my suggestion is that you don't hesitate for a second more and apply for it! Poland is great! and IAESTE Poland makes it greater! You will have a great time there, and it will change your life as it changed mine!!
See you my friends, hopefully, in Poland!”
