Pop-up (COBE) Internships

Step 1: From the below list, find an internship you are interested in applying for, noting the reference number.

Please note that some of the offers visible on the platform may be past their “nomination deadline” and are unavailable. We can check this for you in step 3.

Pop-up internships allow you to select from a list of currently available offers. These offers are available throughout the whole year but are of the same calibre as Traditional Offers.

Please note that you can only apply for one internship at a time. If you are not successful you may then apply for another.

Step 2: Create a profile on the IAESTE Exchange Platform using the button below.

Here you can view offers as they become available. Once you have created your profile, please login and enter all of the required details on the “My Profile” page.

A subscription fee of 35 AUD applies for all registrations. This grants you access to all of our available global offers for 12 months from the date of registration.

Step 3: Using the Contact us page, enter the Reference Number as the subject (e.g COBE Internship AU-2022-1234Z) of the internship that you are interested in to receive confirmation of offer availability and eligibility.

Once we confirm your eligibility, we can initiate the application process and fully activate your Exchange Platform profile. This usually takes ~24-48hrs, so ensure you apply well before the nomination deadline of the offer.


Step 4: Download the Pop-up (COBE) application package.

Step 5: Complete and email us the application package.

Once completed, your application is sent through to the employer for confirmation.

IMPORTANT: The application package must be submitted at least two days before the posted deadline. Submitted applications are reviewed before being submitted to our partner countries. We cannot guarantee that your application will be reviewed and submitted before the due date if not submitted at least two days before the deadline.

Step 6: Employer confirmation and visa processes.

Once confirmed, we will put successful applicants in touch with the iaeste committee in there receiving country. This committee will provide assistance throughout visa applications (if applicable) and help with other necessary steps needed to prepare.

Step 7: Embark on your adventure!

Book your flights, pack your bags, and join the IAESTE family.
