Can you pick your IAESTE work placement?

I'm studying Civil and Environmental Engineering so I would need a placement relevant to my degree course - do you get to pick one from a list? If I'm allocated a placement that's relevant but I would prefer to do something else, can I turn it down? How much freedom do you have with this?

    Hi there, 

    Yes, you do get to pick your IAESTE work placement - we wouldn't expect anyone to do a placement unrelated to their work.

    You get to choose from our catalogue which highlights all the subjects related to each job.

    I hope this was helpful!
