Part 4A. List of Regions

Below is the list of regions from which you can select. The regions you select from this list are binding
and they will be entered on your final form if you are selected. Your level of flexibility is a very
important selection criteria.

When you select a region you must be willing to go to ANY of the countries in that region.
However, you are permitted to name 2 countries in the selected regions (not including Austria) to which
you are not willing to go – valid reasons must also be provided. This will also be binding.

Please note that the regions are grouped by AIESEC administrative groups and therefore, please check
that your understanding of the countries in that region is the same as that of AIESEC. A list of the countries
that make up the regions is on the next page.

There are countries in the world with extremely delicate political situations (see foreign ministry website)
and if you are matched to a country where you may be in danger you will not be expected to go there.
So, if there is a region containing such countries, but which also contains other countries where you
would be willing to go then please do not avoid selecting the whole region as particular situations such
as these will be taken into account.

 Please indicate your regional preferences here. All the countries within the region you choose will be
 considered when finding a match through our online-database Insight2.

Part 4B. Summer Traineeship Countries

According to experience that we have had in previous years, most students would prefer to go for a
short term traineeship (2-3 months) during the summer holidays. We have such a high demand for
traineeships over the summer period that it leads to difficulties in delivery. In addition to this, a lot of
countries only offer long term traineeships (6+ months).

To avoid misunderstandings and frustration due to unrealistic expectations on your side, we have listed
below the countries that have the most short term traineeships available over summer:

In Europe:

Of course we will try our best to find a suitable traineeship for you according to your choices in Part 4A,
however, the countries that you select in Part 4B will be used as a backup and doing this greatly increases
your chances of getting a traineeship on time. We are counting on your flexibility and openmindedness!
With MOVE you have to start your traineeship between April and Juli 2004

Part 8. Languages

Which languages are you able to speak? How do you estimate your knowledge of the language?
Please cross the level that you estimate your language ability to be in each language. If your native language
is not German, please cross N against your native language, otherwise, German will be taken as your
native language.

A level: This indicates an excellent ability in the language, with smooth speech, few grammatical errors, reading
of text with ease, an excellent understanding of native speakers and the ability to address a number of varied

B level: This indicates a good ability in the language. Speech contains some grammatical errors and is
occasionally hesitant with mispronunciations. You are able to understand native speakers with some
clarifications and a reduction of speed. Reading of text is relatively slow as is writing speed.

C level: This indicates a basic level in the language.

If you wish the language to be listed in your profile and therefore used in finding you a traineeship, you must be
tested - please mark this beside the language, in the test section. Please note that if you are not tested in
the language, it cannot be taken into consideration in finding you a traineeship.
TOEFL and Cambridge results taken within the last 12 months are valid and can be converted into our grading
system. Please provide a copy of your TOEFL results if you wish to do this. University diploma exams taken
within the last 12 months can also be taken into account. (Notes 1-2 = level A, notes 3-4 = level B – if you have
only achieved level B, we would strongly recommend that you take part in the tests)

Our language tests are kindly provided by Berlitz Language Schools.
Retesting is available, if desired, at a later date after selection, as well as language courses to improve your
ability are available at their language centres. Please contact your AIESEC representative for further details.
