    Nursing internship in Kathmandu, Nepal

    My stay in Kathmandu was such a rich experience personally as well as professionally. The city has such a rich culture that you are able to experience by visiting the different temples, museums, town centers, attending festivals and living with a host family also offers a unique opportunity. At first the city is overwhelming because it's such a different environment with the chaotic traffic and crowded streets, but after realizing you are safe and learning to cross the street, it is very enjoyable to immerse yourself in the way of life. Eating momos at small restaurants for lunch, taking tuk tuks around town, learning a few Nepali words and bargaining for handmade treasures. The people of Nepal are friendly and open to sharing their culture and way of life, take the time to learn about them and be open about yours as well. If you are a westerner, living in Kathmandu will be an experience of a lifetime.

    How could this program be improved?

    Lower the cost of the program perhaps.

    Unforgettable Experience
    07/28/2014

    World Internships made one of my dreams come true with this internship. I fell in love with the city of Barcelona and I cannot wait to go back. The cultural activities provided by the staff in Barcelona were a great tool to aid the immersion into the Spanish culture. I would recommend this program to people who like to have control over their experience but also want a bit of guidance and some planned activities to supplement their independent exploring.

    How could this program be improved?

    Better communication from the beginning about the planned activities every week would be nice and an earlier implementation of the "Mentor" system to help the students get to know the city better sooner into the program.

    6 Weeks in Ecuador
    04/04/2012

    While in Ecuador, I worked with indigenous tea farmers around the jungle town of Tena.

    My internship was incredible. Not only was I in the Amazon Rainforest, but I was constantly forced to step out of my comfort zone and try new things. I tried new foods, spoke in different languages, and most importantly, learned how to interact in a different society. That's the beauty of an interning abroad - you get the same technical experience, but you also get that added bonus of interacting and learning from people, communities, and situations that you wouldn't normally have here in the States.

    Interning abroad helped me grow tremendously. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested.

    Interning in Wellington, New Zealand
    03/31/2012

    Overall I had a fantastic experience whilst partaking in this internship. Most obviously is the fact that I learnt so much within my field of interest, media post-production, and would say that in that respect the internship was invaluable. The city of Wellington provided a fun, friendly and exciting backdrop to my placement and I was never bored or unhappy living in such a great place. The accommodation was very nice and fantastically located, though I would have to say I was not very happy with the fact that it was expected of the interns to share bedrooms, with there even being a be in the kitchen area for when there was a large influx of interns. One would assume that the high cost of the internship would allow for individual bedrooms at least. But other than that I had absolutely no complaints about the experience and would happily recommend it to others.

    Taking an internship in Florence Italy is definitely a wonderful opportunity ! It is so beautiful here, and learning the language is definitely easier when you are surrounded by people who speak it all the time. Florence is a safe fun place with many options on things to do. If you decide to take an internship in Florence you will be satisfied.
