Absolute Internship London

I was referred by my university to apply for the Absolute Internship Program.

Absolute Internship not only helped enhanced my business skills but also helped round me as a more cultural and professional individual. Spending my days in the capital of Europe in an office environment where colleagues where extremely helpful and friendly was very interesting. I couldn't have enjoyed my free time more, spending time with other interns from US, Italy, Spain, Sweden and Australia. We spent time together after work at bars, restaurants, went to amazing places in the weekend such as Paris, Oxford. So many beautiful places.

Absolute Internship will without doubt be an experience you will never forget.

Absolute Internship

I only have great things to say about Absolute Internship. I had the most valuable time in London and learned so much at my marketing internship. I worked with an e-commerce site and learned so much through my colleagues and supervisor. They were very friendly and helpful during my two months in London.

The best thing about the program is all the other students that I met. I made friends for life that I don't think I'd ever meet back in Queensland in Australia. I also attended some professional networking events where I made some really good connections as well.

I'd advice all students to try out London. It's definitely the capital of Europe. You'll be challenged, you're stepping out of your comfort zone and you are learning both professionally and personally. Just go for it, you'll never regret it.

Great summer in London

I had the best time in London. Coming from Australia I always wanted to experience life in London and travel around Europe and I came across Absolute Internship at my university. It was definitely one of the best decisions I ever made. I'll never forget my two months in London, the people that I met, the colleagues that I had at my internship (did a marketing internship), all the beautiful places that we visited, the premier league matches that we went to watch - absolutely amazing experience.

The city is very well-connected with the tube and the public transportation is very easy compared to Australia. The nearest tube stop is only a 5 min walk also from the accommodation.
I'd recommend this program to anybody, not only Aussies who are looking for an experience in London. Absolute is doing a great job and I'm very thankful.

Cheers guys!

How can this program be improved?
Perhaps open up the program for 3 months?

Lovely Experience with Absolute

I had the most amazing time in London. I had always wanted to live in London. Something unique, wonderful and amazing about this city that made me so attracted to it. I spent two amazing months in London. The aspect of this program that really sets it apart is the wonderful people that you meet. The other students are from all around the world and very open-minded which makes the experience so much more worthwhile. The staff of absolute is also tremendously friendly, helpful and supportive.

My favorite event was our weekend in Paris which I will always cherish. It was so cultural and beautiful. One of my best summers ever. I would highly recommend this program!

A fantastic month in London

I joined the program in 2014 and interned in Fashion. This was definitely one of the best decision I've ever made. I met amazing people and I am extremely thankful to the support team in London and the service that was provided.

My internship was a great learning experience and my supervisor is and will be a mentor to me for quite some time.

During my time there Absolute organized so many activities: a day trip to Oxford, a weekend in Brussels, an evening at London Eye, movie nights, group dinners, museum visits... There is so much you can do in a month!

I would definitely recommend the program and would go again if I was offered to!

Fantastic PR Internship!!

I just spent the summer interning through the Absolute Internship program in London. Fantastic experience! Did a PR Internship with a company that had clients mostly in the fashion industry, and as a girl that was perfect for me.

I'd really recommend the program for anybody who is looking into going to London. Absolute Internship really cares about their students and I found them very organized, structured, friendly and simply just lovely!

Thank you Carla and Team Absolute in London for a fantastic summer!

Intern in London

Everyday, something was organised but there was no obligation to attend or not. The activities were great and I specifically appreciated the support staff that stays at the accommodation as they were so helpful. It is a daunting experience to go do an internship, as well as move to another country so the fact that you have someone there always and other interns is amazing. There were a variety of activities that allowed us to see London and all the tourist attractions it has to offer. On the 3rd weekend we took a trip to Paris which was amazing. And of coarse, the internship itself has provided me with valuable experience. The business I interned with were phenomenal and they gave me a lot of responsibility. It was a small company which meant more personal attention and more opportunities. I got to sit in on client meeting and work on some big projects.

How can this program be improved?
The accommodation was very disappointing. The website suggested that it was in Zone 1, had a fitness centre and looked completely different. It was fine but it was not what they made it out to be. Also, the internship I did had nothing to do with accounting which is what I applied to do. However, I really enjoyed my internship.

Great Summer!

I interned in London through Absolute Internship last summer and had a great time! I interned with a wealth management company and learned so much from my boss. She used to work for UBS and decided to start her own company after working with for a couple of years. It was very inspirational working in London over the summer.

I majored in finance and economics and wanted to do something that was related to my major. Absolute made the application process extremely smooth from the day I applied and I interviewed with my host company a few months before heading to Europe. I got a great first impression of my boss during the interview and was happy that she wanted to host me.

If you're looking into meeting a lot of students from all around the world with a safe, fun, well-organized and caring program - then Absolute Internship is a great choice. The program events were amazing. The staff (who took us to France, Brighton, London Eye and a few other places. We had events organized almost every weekend which was nice.
During one of the free weekends, I decided to spend a weekend in Brussels with a friend from the program which was really cool. Everything in Europe is so well-connected so travels between cities is very easy and quite affordable.

The housing was great too. I met so many people through the program and would recommend it in a heartbeat. Overall, I had a blast with Absolute Internship and would highly recommend it.

Best Summer Ever!!

What can I say?

My experience with Absolute Internship on the London Internship Program exceeded all of my expectations, all of them.
I was extremely impressed with the level of service (top notch from the day I applied), attention to me as an intern of the program. The staff was there literally there for us 24/7, available for us and really made us feel at "home" in London and part of a family. Always being enthusiastic, positive and talkative! I really enjoyed having them around along with the other interns that were part of Absolute Internship.

What made this program so great? The staff. My marketing internship (in a digital agency). The program events (loved Paris and Stonehenge and Bath) and of course the other interns.
I interned in a digital agency and I learned so much from my team. My colleagues were mostly British but some were from Spain and France as well. I was handed a project literally on day one, which I was working on the entire summer. We had weekly progress meetings which was great, I was able to get constructive feedback throughout the whole time from my manager which helped me do better at the internship.
We had events and day trips that were organized every weekend by Absolute Internship. Aurélie, Fredrik and the team did a fantastic job acting as guides. I can't forget the trip to Paris as that was my favorite along with the day trip to Stonehenge and Bath. Paris was so beautiful and thanks to Aurélie's local knowledge as she is French and had lived in Paris for many years, it made my weekend unforgettable. She was so knowledgeable and helpful. The Eiffel Tower, Sacre Coeur and all the fantastic local restaurants we went to was so amazing (Thanks Aurélie!!)

I would without doubt recommend this program to anybody. Absolute Internship is a great program!! You will have the time of your life!

Awesome summer!

Absolute Internship partnered with my university in Australia and I was recommended by my professor to apply to the program. The process of applying, getting ready for London and preparing for my adventure in Europe was very easy! I had always dreamt of traveling to Europe so this was a great opportunity to combine both travel and building my resume at the same time.

I learned a lot of great things at my internship. I worked for an international PR Agency that specialized in sports entertainment which was extremely exciting as we had clients that were in the soccer and rugby industry. I was involved with different projects at work and the manager really made me feel part of the team which I really appreciated. I still keep in contact with my manager and some of my colleagues at the internship.

The best part of the program is definitely the Absolute Internship community, the staff work so hard to make us feel comfortable and are great in building a community. The Paris trip was amazing... we spent the weekend in Paris and even though it was Winter in Europe I loved it, the culture, the food and all the beautiful sights that we visited. The people that you meet are also fantastic, the other students were all from Mexico, Spain, Italy, Sweden and Australia. We were such a great group!

I would definitely recommend Absolute Internship to any student who is looking into going to London for an internship. It will be the best summer of your life!!

How can this program be improved?
Nothing really.. I would make the program longer! The time passed too quickly...
