The Intern Group Reviews
What an exhilarating experience!
Submitted by Heema Upadhyay - Bournemouth University | September 14, 2017
I completed a Finance internship with a Wealth Advisory firm which was such an eye opening internship and really made me realise what I don't know and encouraged work even harder through my 6 weeks. The social aspect was just amazing! Met some really really great people some of which will even help you in your future endeavours! Definitely worth it, would highly recommend to anyone thinking of doing this program.
The only improvement I would suggest is the accomodation. It was sufficient however could've been better in terms of facilities.
Overall what a great summer!
At home and away
Submitted by LJD - University College London | September 13, 2017
Taking part in this internship abroad has been perhaps one of the most challenging and yet rewarding time of my life. From meeting new people to living in an entirely different city, these last six weeks have challenged me more than most! However I have learnt a lot myself and the culture that I became immersed in. I loved my internship as I really felt as though I became part of a team and was able to see the behind-the-scenes to political campaigning. That being said, there were times that I struggled, especially feeling homesick because of the time difference. I do think that more could be done in this area, with regards to accommodation, to make interns feel more comfortable and at home. There are also a few things that I was not informed of, including lack of toilet roll and cleaning accessories prior to my arrival. Apart from that, my time in New York has been amazing and I have certainly experienced a great deal. I look forward to using my time here as I progress through my career.

It was a great social and learning experience. I made friends with people from all over the world that I intend to keep in touch with. The internship allowed you to gain valuable real life experience in your field of study.
6 weeks internship as a materials engineer
Submitted by Guillaume Zoetelief Tromp - Imperial College London | September 11, 2017
The whole experience was amazing, from the country to the workplace. Medellin is a great city to live in with all the facilities you need close-by. During my 6 weeks in Colombia I got the opportunity to explore a whole new country and activities were organised to help discover the culture as well as touristic sites in and around the city. As for the placement, the Intern Group try very hard to put you in the internship that you prefer and are always there to help. I had a great experience doing research in a startup and getting to know Colombian people and improving my Spanish.
Thanks a lot to the Intern Group for all they have done for me during my six weeks there.
First time down under (literally!)

Living in the UK, I always forgot Australia existed, being so far away. When an internship opportunity in Australia arose, I thought "why the hell not? Never have been, unlikely I would go in the future, so why not mix travel and work experience together?" Graduating in Geography, I had no idea what I wanted to do, but I knew from my three years of university that I wanted to see how a local NGO company worked, seeing how many of my lectures and lecturers always talked so positively how the local is more effective than global organisations. This experience definitely helped me focus on what I wanted to do, what I was good at and what the office atmosphere was like (as I had never worked in an office before). My company was very welcoming. Having come off a long and strenuous flight from London, I was feeling homesick, especially after seeing where I was on the globe - literally the other side of the world! They made Melbourne feel less distant, making going to my office each day the best part of Melbourne for me! At the end, I was given good references, both from my host company and The Intern Group, which has definitely helped me boost my CV. Through the internship I am able to show real experiences in job applications and interviews back in London, which has definitely made job hunting less nerve-wracking. As for Australia itself? EXPLORE! It's a big country (even though I graduated in Geography, even I was thrown off with how large the country was). Melbourne is great for it's culture, with loads of events to do after work. There's also so much to do further out of the city, with Great Ocean Road, the Puffing Billy Steam Train, Phillip Island, the Grampians (which I didn't go to unfortunately!) and so much more. There's Sydney too, which also has a lot to offer and gave off more of a city vibe to me than Melbourne. You can easily spend a good 3-4 days there since there are ferries available to explore the entire coastline of Sydney. I only went to Sydney outside of Melbourne, but other interns recommended Cairns (if you want to escape the Melbourne "winter" - which isn't a winter if you're from London). My only piece of advice? Go during the Australian spring/summer!
