The Whole Package

Global Experiences provided such a well rounded intern abroad summer for me in Sydney. The internship placement was smooth and I was very happy with my host company. The hours for my internship were flexible and I was able to gain new accounting knowledge. I was also able to travel around Australia a good bit as well on the weekends. The social scene at our housing and around Sydney was such a fun time. I would definitely recommend this program. The money in life will come back, but the adventures you make won’t!

Go Travel Abroad!!!

Global Experiences provided an amazing program with great people and an incredible living arrangement here in Sydney!
I would definitely recommend this company if you’re in your young 20’s looking for programs to get internships with other college aged kids looking to travel in their free time.
There are a lot of different programs that you can apply to and all offer ways to earn credits for traveling.
Overall the program was very easy to apply and get set up with, and they provided everything i needed to get abroad and to get credits at my college for my internship.

Interning down under

I really enjoyed my internship. I feel like I got a jump ahead in terms of experience in my field of study. My coworkers and supervisors were great- very friendly and willing to help me learn. Outside of that, being in Australia was an excellent time. Even though it was winter, I was able to spend pretty sufficient time on the beach. The GE excursions included a trip to the Hunter Valley wine country and a trip to the Blue Mountains, both of which I enjoyed thoroughly. The living accommodations were nice, too.

Amazing Experiance!

This was an amazing experience. I am so grateful I found such an amazing program that supported me every step of the way. I was able to explore the other side of the world, and develop professionally. I met other interns in so many different fields as well. The program coordinator, Andrea, was amazing! She made sure everything went smoothly from the second I landed in Australia. I have made so many amazing memories and learned so much from this experience! The scariest part about going overseas is figuring out how to do it. This program helped me every step of the way.

Sydney GE Internship

Working and living in Sydney was an incredible experience this summer. My local coordinator, Andrea, worked super hard to make sure we had a great place to live and she also set up a bunch of different excursions for our group. I wasn't sure what to expect on my trip, but I found a lot of comfort in both familiar foods and activities as well as new experiences. The transportation options were incredible and the city was easy to get around. I loved my time in the city and I'm looking forward to coming back to Australia whenever I can.

Pros
  • Local coordinator
  • Local Food
  • Easily Navigable

Global Experiences Sydney

I have learned so many valuable lessons and skills during my internship with Global Experiences. I think one of the most important things I have learned is independence. Moving across the world is an incredibly big commitment, so to be able to do that alone is a great achievement, however, I have also had the responsibility of caring for myself without the help of family or close friends nearby. Global Experiences provided all of the resources necessary to succeed and excel in this environment, and wanted nothing but the best for us. They offered many interesting day trips and excursions for us to explore all that beautiful Australia has to offer, and really tried to make us feel at home. The program coordinator, Andrea, went above and beyond to make everyone feel comfortable, included, and welcome.
I have also found this internship to be very valuable in terms of communication and networking as you meet so many other interns through global experiences, as well as an abundance of professionals in your line of work with similar interests. This has provided me with friendships that will last a lifetime, and memories I will cherish forever!

Pros
  • Flexibility
  • Connections
  • Experiences

Global Experiences Sydney, Australia Internship

Overall great experience. Australia was always on my bucket list and this was a great way to see Australia and gain work experience. It was great to meet other people from different Universities across the United States (and some Canadian). Sydney had everything for every interest. There was never a time where I was bored in Sydney. We took lots of day trips and some weekend trips to see different parts of Australia. If you have the chance to come, take it. It is an amazing culture to see! Also, the internship allows you to learn about the field you are interested in, but get a different perspective. You get to learn about the work life in Australia and network with many people!

Pros
  • Work experience
  • Get to see many parts of Australia
  • Make connections at work and with students in program
