Music Business Internship in Sydney

I had an absolutely blast in Sydney, Australia! Through this program, I was surrounded by open minded people from different backgrounds who were eager to explore and try new things. I was absolutely impressed that our internship coordinator, Andrea, was able to help me get a great internship in the music industry (which is very difficult). I worked a variety of tasks in music management, marketing, and PR, with supervisors who have worked and are still working with artists on a regional and global scale. Some notable artists I have worked with are Pixies, Lauv, and Northeast Party House. I learned a great deal about myself from the people I worked with and the friends I made on this trip. This trip is a great way to get you out of your comfort zone and get a bit of a taste of adult life.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
For people interning abroad, I would recommend being mindful about the money you spend. It is easy to get caught up in spending more money than you need to when you are traveling.

Sydney global experiences

I absolutely loved my time interning in Sydney with global experiences! Also Andrea the on site staff was very helpful & went above and beyond what she was required to do. I would recommend this program to anyone. I did a internship with a corporate event planning company & it has shifted what I want to do in the future. Everyone on the group was nice and always open to try new things and go new places in Australia. We went to the great barrier, port Stephens, blue mountains, royal national park, Olympic stadium, northern beaches, the outback, south Australia, tassie, Perth (pink lakes) and many many more!! Such a great time, a lot of people on the program chose to stay in Aussie after there program ended as well! If you are hesitating just go

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Do weekend trips as much as possible! So much to see outside Sydney!

Amazing Experience

Sydney is such a beautiful city, amazing views, great culture, and very diverse. I worked in the central business district which was the best area I could have been placed for my internship field. My program coordinator was always so helpful and truly cared about me having a great experience through her support, recommendations, and advise. Weekend trips were a constant for my roommates and I which was amazing because you can go so many places through where I was living in Sydney that was placed by the program. I also could not have asked for better program mates who have turned into my family and my actual roommate who was placed perfectly through the roommate survey. 10/10 for the program overall, it was everything I expected and more for the effort everyone has put in.

What would you improve about this program?
Maintainance was difficult to reach regarding issues we had but to be fair we didn’t do much follow up because we were always so busy.

I love Sydney

This was truly a once in a lifetime experience. I went all over Australia including Sydney, Melbourne, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Gold Coast. Everywhere I went just continued to blow me away. I truly loved diving in to the Aussie culture and I’m sure all my friends and family back home will look at me funny when I start saying “mate”, “cheers”, and “brekkie” all the time. My internship was for a nonprofit yoga foundation that offers free yoga to people effected by mental illness, domestic abuse, homelessness, etc.. I had two of the nicest bosses in the world and learned so much. It even inspired me to want to teach yoga to people struggling with mental health during my gap year. From the city to the people here, there’s nothing not to love. I came here knowing no one and I’ve left with friends that will last a lifetime.

What would you improve about this program?
There are no medical internships in the Sydney program. I would definitely look into it becoming an option because my internship wasn’t suited for my future profession.

to me

I had an amazing time living and working in Sydney. It's a vibrant city with so many options for how you want to spend your time. The people are kind and the weather is great. Working with global experiences was super easy and I loved all the people who I worked with. The location coordinator, Andrea, is my favorite person ever and she makes the adjustment easy and the rest of the trip fun. I got meet and live with some amazing people. This experience was incomparable to anything else because it gave me the ability to grow and become apart of my professional field, while also giving me the opportunity to grow as a person and learn more about myself as I experienced independence. This is truly a one-of-a-kind experience and i'm so grateful for it.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Do everything you can. Spend all your free time exploring as there is so much cool stuff to do here. You just have to go out and find it

The Best Experience

I didn't know what to expect when I packed my bags for a year in Sydney. I am so grateful for the incredible people I met as soon as I arrived. The entire program was fantastic, all thanks to the support from our program director, Andrea.

I spent my weekends exploring both within and outside of the city. Whether it was lying on the beach, hiking, trying new dishes, or learning about Australian history, I was able to have weekends full of great people and memories.

My internship placement was perfect and I got to gain a lot of experience in a field in which I had none. Though it was fast paced, I was able to balance travel and work.

Finally, I would just like to encourage anyone who is thinking of applying to the Global Experiences program to go for it. You won't regret it!

What would you improve about this program?
The only improvement I can think of would be to modify one or two of the program events. I would suggest moving the Bondi to Coogee walk to the beginning of the trip to give students a taste of coastal walks. The night noodle markets were also not necessary as a planned event. Otherwise a great program!

Amazing Experience

This program definitely did not disappoint. I absolutely fell in love with Sydney and I am so glad it is where I got to spend my internship. it is truly a beautiful city with so much to see and do. I love the fast-pace vibe of Sydney because there are is always something going on and there us never a dull moment. I will also never forget the people I met on this trip and the amazing experiences we had together. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better group of people to spend the last three months with learning and growing with in a new country. Not only did I experience a lot of personal growth during this program but also a lot of professional growth working as a marine biology intern at Macquarie University. I'm looking forward to applying the knowledge and skills I have gained from this internship to my future career opportunities.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
I recommend going out and seeing somewhere new whenever you have the chance. 12 weeks goes by really quickly and you'll definitely want to finish the program knowing you did and saw as much as you could. It will definitely be worth it.

An amazing experience

I was very impressed that Global Experiences was able to find me a quality internship, especially in the competitive music industry world. I had a great time working in PR and Management for five different small companies in the same office. I have worked for great artists such as Lauv, the Pixies, and Northeast Party House and have met great people in the industry with global connections. The friends I made hear left a big impact on me when it came to trying new things and pushing each other to live life to its fullest. The people I met through this program are all very unique from different backgrounds and have given me confidence and support in my personal development. And our site supervisor Andrea, of course, has been an amazing and welcoming help on this trip. 10/10 adventure.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Spend every second of your free time with your friends here and explore life here in Australia. Also, be mindful of how much money you are spending throughout your trip because it is easy to get carried away at the moment and spend more than you need to.
