New experiences are always reliable challenges through which our mindset and attitudes are forged. Attaining some new scientific experience favorable to our scientific and professional lives’ visions is immensely promising. IAESTE is the association meant to purveys invaluable work and research experiences . My involvement in IAESTE internship is shared in upcoming paragraphs so as to letting you ascertain how will it be to win an IAESTE internship.
Their widely accepted entity let it happened. As an international association, there are less organizations across the world harboring the merit to give work internships as extended as vastness of 70 countries so as IAESTE. Taking the extensive variety of opportunities they provided at different majors, their relentless effort and also well-organized following-ups facilitated the whole procedure post to the acceptance. For instance, those have got to pass German Visa bureaucracy as a Schengen member would know how burdensome it could be in Iran. Since I got informed of acceptance, the German Visa procedure seemed intimidating, but I could receive my Visa at a proper time which could not have been possible without IAESTE.
Benefiting from IAESTE’s concomitant support led me toward the country of Goethe. On 2nd of November I commenced my internship at “Hochschule Weihenstephan-Triesdorf” university of applied science in the Bayern state in Germany. Spending 6 weeks of scientific group work holding high research standards beside the feeling of playing a real positive role toward achieving the group’s goals was the essence of my stay in Germany.
IAESTE support were not constrained to Iran . Having someone knowing the local language, culture and the system through which things work would seems trivial and be belittled, but, in fact, it is going to be vital when you cannot even convey simple concepts while buying even everyday groceries. IAESTE local committee will become a helpful reference as staying at your destination handling every guidance you demand, making sure of needs be met, and even managing memorable trips via destination country. For example, Salzburg was our celebrated destinatio being my
highlight of internship.
To wrap it up, IAESTE was an outstanding occurrence in my scientific life catapulted my resume. All due to their efforts this fruitful experience was made real. I really appreciate all IAESTE guys, especially Iranian part which undoubtedly aided mr through every steps.
