Information for students

To be eligible for a work placement abroad through IAESTE Denmark, you are required to be studying in Denmark in a full degree programme. In case you are an exchange student or similar you should check the possibilities to apply through the IAESTE-committee in your home country.

IAESTE Denmark has no possibilities to directly arrange training placements for students in other countries – all internships are exchanged between the IAESTE organisations on national level. If you are living outside Denmark, please apply through the IAESTE-committee in your home country.

We are always looking to recruit energetic new members in IAESTE Denmark, if you wish to be a part of one of the largest technical internship exchange organisations in the world, send us an email to To read more on our Local Committees and volunteers, you can look into our page, For Students (in Danish)

Information for companies

IAESTE is an international, non-profit organisation founded right after World War II, in a time when increased cooperation across borders was on top of the agenda. Denmark was one of the ten founding IAESTE member countries back then, in 1948. We have ever since been committed to the same spirit – to promote cultural and professional exchange, new perspectives and strengthened international networks.

For whom?
Most of IAESTE’s internships are in the science and technology field, but we also provide many placements within areas such as architecture and economy.  Thanks to IAESTE’s extensive international network – you can find us in over 80 countries worldwide – we are able to recruit and match qualified students with appropriate internships, in accordance with employers’ demands.

Our service to you
IAESTE will help you with the all the administrative arrangements, including work permits and tax office registration. In case you are already in contact with a student, whom you are interested in hiring for an internship, we can also offer our help with these matters. IAESTE’s network of local committees helps the intern to find accommodation, opening a bank account as well as arranging social activities. There is a local office in Lyngby and one in Odense, for more information please refer to our page For Employers (in Danish)

Internships may vary in length between 2-12 months, in accordance with the employer’s wishes. The salary paid to the student should cover basic living costs plus some allowance. In Denmark, minimum internship wage is 12.470 DKK/month. The student pays tax on income, usually 30 percent. Unless the company wishes to cover expenses, the student also pays travel costs, rent, insurance, etc.
