    In today’s world where your daily cup of coffee is probably imported from South America, your clothes are likely made in Asia and your classmate is an exchange student from the United States or Spain, having international experience as a student is almost inevitable.
    AIESEC is a non-profit organization which facilitates international internships. These are available for UT-students who would like to go abroad, but also for international students who want to come to the Netherlands. AIESEC is established in 127 countries over the whole world, so there are little limitations! You can choose to do voluntary work in a developing country for a weeks, but doing an internship abroad for over a year is also no problem.

Together we make it possible for a lot of students to broaden their horizon and to take the leap.
