Social life

Meeting IAESTE members (pick-up at the airport, organized events...)

They picked me at the train station, showed me the dormitory. During my stay there was a cooking event every Wednesday, where all the internf gathered with some of IAESTE's members.

Meeting other foreign students

At the cooking events. Going out sometimes. There were a lot of international students in the city who were always getting together and organizing some meetings and trips. You donť have to worry to get bored or lonely in Linz. Honestly everyone who wants can find friends there.

Sport and culture

There was a small fitness in the dormitory. There are plenty possibilities for sports in the city. Cycling, in-line skating along the river Danube, beach volleyball, basketball and fitness park for free in the sport area not far from the city center.

Benefits of the internship

Great working environment, with a lot of employe benefits (team buldings, company events,...)

Cooperation with IAESTE in the foreign country

Honestly, I have to say that I expected more. The members could offer more help. I expected guide around the city in the first days but even when I asked for it, there was none.

Overall experience with IAESTE

Overall experience is great. If I were younger and still student I would definitely became a member of IAESTE.
