You’re about discovering the amazing world of IAAS Expro. The IAAS exchange program – ‘Expro’- exists over 45 years and in this time, more than 20.000 students have been exchanged with IAAS. The IAAS exchange program gives opportunities to all students in Countries, where a recognised local committee of IAAS is active, to do a traineeship (internship) in another country. With ‘Expro’, you can learn and experience things that cannot be learned out of course books.
Internships on farms
Internship in companies, organizations, universities and research institutions
Internships are community-based projects, mostly voluntary work
Students that are majoring/studying in the field of Agriculture and Related Sciences, coming from countries that are ‘full member’ and ‘Candidate member‘ of IAAS, are eligible to participate in Exchange Program. Some other affiliations can enable certain types of participation as well. Also students, who are graduated, less than one year ago, can participate in Expro. Note that the accepting country need to resign your application and that it has to accord with the working-visa restrictions of that specific country.
It previously broke the international exchange policies and quality standards. It cannot meet international exchange policies and quality standards (IEPQS) due to several reasons (i.e. the organization cannot provide proper working place, sufficient accommodation or salary, employees cannot communicate with an intern, etc.). A decision has been made by the VP OF EXCHANGE, because of violation of IEPQS.
Having the opportunity to go to a completely new culture, experiencing and living it , was amazing.
