I didn't really have any problems with the program itself. The requests of the program weren't unreasonable. The people who worked for the program were really nice and easy to talk too. I can honestly say in my belief that the program was perfect.

For this program we had to take an "Internship Reflect" course, where we were supposed to reflect on our time at the office, the work that we did, and the experiences we had - basically compare one another's experience. Since we all had different majors and therefore different internships, I found it not applicable to everyone in the class. It was not very effective and would much rather have had this time to be out in London exploring something! Other than that, the CAPA staff was fantastic, I loved my "Exploring London" class, and my internship was the greatest pre-career experience I think I'll ever receive.

I wish a CAPA staff member could have come to my school before the program started. I didn't really understand that a different company was in charge of the program until I actually got to Australia
HannahAge: 19-24FemaleOswego, New YorkMy Summer Spent in London10/19/2015How could this program be improved?
One way this program could be improved is by cutting down on the required hours a student must be at an internship placement. It was extremely hard to find time to explore the city and culture of London when I was in either class or my internship all day Monday-Friday. For a 6 week program, the requirements shouldn't be the same as full semester abroad students.
