The Commission for Exchange Programme (EP) offers forestry students the chance to gain professional experience in a foreign country by participating in short-term practical placements. As past participants can attest, learning about forestry is just one part of the EP experience. Living and working abroad gives trainees the chance to learn about a different culture, meet new people, and share and exchange knowledge and ideas. So why not apply today!

About this commission
The Exchange Commission is set up to help IFSA students find internships or jobs internationally. The Exchange Commission will help interested IFSA members find and contact companies that fit their learning interests in the region that they are interested in going. We are also planning to work on building a data base of companies, including the regions they work in and the types of work they do.
If anyone has a company in their region that they think would be interested in providing international opportunities for IFSA members please let me know so that I can contact them. Feel free to send me an e-mail at anytime or set up a Skype meeting. Figure out what you want to do and where you want to go and together we will make it happen.
