Four tips to help you get approved!

1. Apply to at least 5 projects

We have 1 million young people around the world on Opportunity Portal right now - that’s a lot!

To increase the chances of you and your dream project finding each other, apply to a whole range of projects that appeal to you. We recommend at least 5-10 (especially if you are tight on time!) there’s heaps of awesome ones there!

2. Try out our Featured Projects!

Some projects have limited spots for exchange participants from the same country (to keep the diversity of the participants on the project) however our featured projects have more opportunities while maintaining the participant diversity. Check them out!

3. Act Fast!

When you are accepted for a project, you have 10 days to confirm your position. Since the overseas organisation needs to ensure they have enough people for the project, after the 10 days they are allowed to offer the position to someone else. So get in quick!

4. Ask for help from your local AIESEC representatives

As always, you can always ask for help from your local AIESEC representatives! Shoot an email back, find a time to meet us on campus, or over the phone - whatever you’re comfortable with. We’re here to make your exchange experience extraordinary!

Good luck!

Louise enjoys the small things in life - whether it's her daily gym workout, her matcha green latte, or convincing her roommates to cook for her. If you ask Louise to describe her perfect day, she'd say relaxing in summer heat of India. Louise always enjoys taking a challenge which is why she loves seeing how young people can transform themselves through stepping out of their comfort zone.
