Results of the AGM

On Tuesday night we held our AGM and appointed a new board for the coming academic year. The positions filled were:

  • President: Jack Byres
  • Treasurer: Emma Doran
  • Secretary: Sam Williamson
  • Social Coordinator: Laura Cowan
  • Social Media Officer: Junaid Ahmad

We feel this board will serve us and the whole of the IAESTE program in Glasgow well over the coming year. Well done to all of them.

Application Workshop – 11th February

For all of you who pre-registered for the IAESTE 2014 summer placement program the list of placements came out on Friday and the application deadline of 12noon on the 14th is fast approaching.

To help you complete your applications, we will be running an Application Workshop. This may help to answer any burning questions you have and hopefully help you to make your application the best that it can possibly be in order to stand out from the crowd.

The workshop will be held on Tuesday the 11th of February at 7pm in room R2.13 of the Royal College Building at Strathclyde University.  To access the building please use the door near the bottom of the hill on Montrose Street, room R2.13 will be straight down the hallway on the left. The map below shows the location of the Royal College Building.

Glasgow University Internship Fair 2013

Hey guys, tomorrow the 23rd of October is the first internship fair of the upcoming academic year. It will take place in Glasgow University Union from 1000-1600. We have a stall which will be manned by friendly faces from both the local committee here in Glasgow and also from the British Council. Its a good opportunity to learn more about the programme and to ask any questions about what IAESTE entails. Don’t worry if you can’t attend as there will be other talks and fairs before application deadline date on the 10th of December. Hope to see you all there.

Different Meeting Location

Just a short one here to let you all know that we’re changing things up a bit from the usual Tinderbox/Bar Home arrangement this week, and instead will be meeting in The Old Schoolhouse on Woodlands Road (map below).

If you’re a trainee who has been on placement this summer, or even just a keen bean looking to have a pint and some banter, then come along and join us from 8pm.

Also, this will be our last meeting prior to the AGM and will also be our last weekly meeting of the summer, as we’ll be moving back to meeting every 2 weeks thereafter.
