Why join IAESTE Leuven?

  • You get to participate in a meaningful extracurricular activity while enhancing your teamwork and leadership skills: we have weekly board meetings to discuss ongoing projects and plan awesome events.
  • Your experience will be adapted to your personal preferences: members are permitted to choose a function with more or less intensity and time spent on board work can range from a few hours a week to as many as you like. Of course, you gain more useful experience the more you participate!
  • You can live your creative dream in our team: we have one well-defined core mission (internships abroad), allowing us to fill the rest of the year with activities that we deem interesting. No two years are the same at IAESTE. As a consequence, members can dream up any relevant event, and we can make it happen!
  • After or in between our meetings, we plan some fun to make the year as memorable as possible. At our latest teambuilding, we rented a karaoke studio for an evening and went loose. What happens in karaoke, stays in karaoke!
  • A board year at IAESTE results in marketable skills for your future. Among our current and former members, two distinctive character traits stand out: our sense of initiative and our global perspective on the world.
