  4. Member universities can receive a certain amount of internship placements proportional to the offers they have collected for the same exchange year.

  5. The eligible students can apply for the offers sent to their IAESTE representative on condition that they meet the application criteria for the offers. IAESTE Turkey office do not collect individual applications.

The acceptance papers are not sent directly to the students, as the student should pay a fee before receiving the acceptance documents.

Reserved offers are processed between the student who has an individual acceptance and the IAESTE Turkey office. The procedure is as follows:

  1. The student contacts an institution abroad and receives a personal invitation on their behalf.

  2. The acceptance letter should state the period of internship and the payment that the student will receive during this period. As the IAESTE is not a funding institution, the employer should guarantee a certain payment.

  4. If the other country’s IAESTE office approves the reserved offer, the student can have the documents required for the visa.
