About us


In the aftermath of World War II a new spirit pervaded the world: a desire for international understanding and cooperation. It was this spirit which brought forth both the United Nations and IAESTE, organisations dedicated to promoting these objectives.

IAESTE, founded in 1948 at the Imperial College in London, is a non-political, independent, non-governmental association maintaining a consultative relationship with several agencies of the UN.

IAESTE Yugoslavia/Serbia has been a full member since 1952.


To provide students at institutions of higher education with technical experience abroad relative to their studies in the broadest sense;
To promote international understanding and goodwill amongst students of all nations.

These objectives are fulfilled through a reciprocal exchange of students for paid on-the-job training in foreign enterprises and institutions during their summer vacations (usually 6-12 weeks), with special arrangements possible for 3-18 months.
