Global Experiences Reviews
Social services intern in Dublin
Submitted by Gabby - SUNY Potsdam | April 24, 2018
I interned at a human rights organization in Dublin during my spring semester. Even before going abroad Global Experiences made me feel well-prepared. They helped with resumes, found a placement that fit the best for individual interests, and were always available for any questions. They provided articles what to expect and some other helpful tips. The cost was a little expensive, but it was worth it because the program provided me with an experience that I will never forget. In the beginning of my internship I was not getting as many tasks as I was expecting, but during my second week I was assigned to youth work which I never thought I would want to do. I ended up loving it and now have a better idea of what I want to do in my future. Accommodation was not bad and the issues that did arise were out of the hands of GE. When a major incident occurred, GE was there through it all and post-incident as well. I feel that one or two more cultural events could be added so interns could be more immersed in the culture. Overall, I cannot thank GE enough for the amazing experience they gave me. The group of friends I met have forever changed my life. My internship site is one that I will never forget. One of my goals before starting this semester was to step out of my comfort zone, and I can confidently say that I am more outspoken and sure of myself than I have ever been. GE definitely did not disappoint me, and I would highly recommended interning abroad.

Interning abroad for three months was one of the best experiences of my life to date. My internship placement was 100% perfect and I learned so much, further clarifying my career path. The advisors were extremely helpful and attentive to my needs. I had an amazing time working as well as being able to visit other countries while abroad.

This program was honestly amazing. You really were able to immerse yourself in the culture and feel like you were actually living there. The internship taught me so much the PR industry and helped me decide what I wanna do later in life. Our program advisor was super helpful the whole time and so responsive if we needed anything. I would recommend anyone doing this program.
Sydney is the awesome!

I did an internship in Sydney from Jan - April. The experience was unreal nothing i have ever experienced. From applying to arriving in Sydney was the smoothest process very easy to follow. When i arrived the housing was nothing like i expected. It was very close to public transport, groceries, and bars. Interning in Sydney has made me grow as an individual and i can confidently feel with the knowledge and experience I've gained through my internship i can finally have a career in my field of studies.
Come to Sydney!!!

I had the most amazing experience in Sydney through Global Experiences. I fell in love with the city from the moment I arrived. I worked on unique projects and had extraordinary responsibilities during my internship that definitely helped me grow and develop and gain a sense of what it is like to be a part of the working world rather than just a student in school. Andrea, our program director, was fantastic. She became like my mom here and was so welcoming, caring, kind and helpful. We did really fun activities with her throughout our time in Sydney such as the Taronga Zoo, paddle boarding and an outdoor movie. Our housing was safe and clean and we had our own washer/dryer/kitchen which was fantastic. Oh also, the weather here is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. I escaped the miserable northern weather in the US and was able to be in Sydney for summer. Everyone must come to the greatest place on earth and experience life in the land down under.
