10/10

Now that my experience is finished I can say that Come2England really do a very good job. I was living in London for two years, one of which I've been a waitress. When I looked unlikely to get an internship in my area (Marketing), I met Come2england and in less than three weeks I started my internship. The customer service is great and they are very concerned about all you needs.

Response from Come2England

Great internship

10/10

Come2England was very helpful for me. I was very tired of looking for a internship by myself without good results. Everything changed when my friend recommended me Come2England. They really know how to do their job and found internship for me. Now I'm working in the industry which i was dreaming all my life. Now I belive that if you really want something you can do it. Sometimes you just need ask for help.
Costumer service was brilliant so every contact with them was pleasure for me.
Thank you for everythink;)

Great experience

10/10

I was looking for internship abroad but it was not easy to find a job, place to stay plus my english is not the best.

I contacted come2england and they explain me and help me with everything.

Giada was very helpful and always replay to all my questions. She introduce me few companies with who I had skype interviews and check which of them can help me develop my skills the most.

Then I decided to choose company related to my study which is designing.

When I come to London I was completely lost, but team of come2england been really helpful. The member of their team who speak spanish as me make my life easier.

They as well find for me accommodation which was absolutely one of the best things. I have a river view, weekly cleaner and in the apartment was gym and sauna! Yeeey

That was experience which will influence my future career. I built my portfolio which I can show my future employer.

Response from Come2England

Hola Graziella! :)

And thanks again for your nice words!

We are all very happy that you had a good and fruitful experience here in London and we wish you all the best for your future career as a designer! :)

NEGATIVE ASSESSMENT OF YOUR PROFESSIONAL SKILLS

1/10

Come2England was entirely responsible for the administation of my grant, provided by the Leonardo programme for accommodation and subsistence. Part of the money was used for the rent of my room in a place in terrible conditions where there was no hygiene and no privacy, the landlord was disrespectful and I had to solve many big problems every day. When I asked for your help I was told I was simply lacking adaptability. When the contact person gave me the money for my subsistence I immediately found out a huge part of the grant was missing (£508). Only after several requests of transparency I came to know part of my grant was used to pay Come2England for its assistance. According to the training agreement I had signed with my sending organization, the expenses of accommodation and subsistence should have been covered by the grant but I had to rely on my own my money instead. The organization Come2England found for my internship was bad managed, I had no tutor, no clear taskk and I did not get any training experience. The contact person never helped me in any single aspect concerning working issues.

Response from Come2England

Hello Clara and thanks for your feedback.
We checked your history in our database and we found some discrepancies between your comment and the information we have.
According to our record you came to London with a Leonardo scholarship which Come2England had to manage in order to find you an accommodation and an internship in a charity organization. Part of your scholarship has been used to pay the rent and Come2England services. As we are sure you are aware, finding a placement and an accommodation is a job and it has a fee. All our prices are clearly reported on our webpage to show 100% transparency.
Once again we are surprised to hear this feedback from you as the accommodation was in the average of London houses and we had a very positive feedback about your internship performance by your tutor.
We are sorry to hear your discontent but we hope in your understanding about the reality of the facts.

Unforgettable experience

9/10

I participated in this program in 2013 when it had been recently created. At first I thought it might be a bit troublesome but I decided to take the risk as it was really cheap and I had my parents financial support.
Surprisingly, I found the experience to excess my first expectations. The staff (specially Giada who speaks my language fluently) was really nice and caring, and the company in which they found my internship (a football club management company) was the best environment for me to start my career. They were completely multicultural and in some cases the work was challenging, though I always had my superiors support. I totally recommend Come2England, they are very serious and professional people.

How can this program be improved?

By the time I went to London they didn't provide many the accommodation options, they should work in getting more residences, rooms in shared flats or family home staying.

Response from Come2England

Hey Jose! Thank you so much for your kind feedback :)
We are so happy to hear that your internship in London has been a good experience for you and your personal development ;)

We definitely improved our accommodation option in the last year and we are now providing homestay and student residences together with top quality flatshare!

You should come back, visit us and give it a try :)

Fantastic internship in London

9/10

I had only 15 days in order to find an internship, Come2England did find in a couple of days.
I did a couple of interviews over Skype and I chose the perfect company which did match my studies.

The accommodation was fantastic, very clean apartment, river view with spa, gym, Jacuzzi, sauna.

How can this program be improved?

The staff was really nice and helpful I can not see any negative part of the program.
The free business English courses was great, I whish I could do more hours. Unfortunately the classes are limited.

Response from Come2England

Thank you Mario!
We are so glad our help was useful for your experience in London!
Our Business English Workshop is getting very popular and we are planning in increasing the number of classes soon ;)

Program help me to achieve my goal

8/10

I always wanted to do my internship in London, and this program helped me with this.

As recent graduate in marketing I wanted to gain experience in that field.

Thanks to support of the staff in Come2England I got opportunity to get extensive training in one of the Marketing agency based in central London.

I have learnt a lot already. Before I didn`t know anything about SEO, Google Advertising, content management now I am able to set up my own campaigns.

I am happy with my internship and looks like the employee as well.
Hoping to get the job with them after I finish.

Response from Come2England

Thanks a lot for your positive feedback Aggie :)

It is a pleasure to hear that your internship experience is running smoothly!

Keep up posted for any update and we hope your efforts will bring you to a job offer soon! :)

I expected a different, more professional thing

2/10

As the headline resumes, I expected a different thing. I expected to be placed in a company directly related with one of my professional competences, and in which I could have some opportunity when my internship period finishes.

I think the time Come2England had for the company/organization research and my own CV, English level (even if it's not proficienty, is quite good and fluent), and competences don't match with the ONLY place that it seemed came out.

I expected more interviews, more options, and other scenery for my internship.

All I have just said, was said with all my respect for the organization I am doing my internship in: what they do is really interesting, and there are many professional people working there. The disappointment is about the match Come2England made between the organization and me.

Response from Come2England

Hi Maria and thanks for giving us your feedback.
As it seems you are still in London and you are not completely satisfied with your internship placement, we would like to invite you to our office in order to discuss better all the internship opportunity you might have.
Especially we would like to understand what exactly didn't work with the company match and we would love to hear all your suggestions in order to find a better solution for you.
Please contact us by email or phone in order to arrange a meeting asap

Learn the performance of the enterprise

7/10

I don't know what to say, but I think there are many things to improve. For example before sending people to the different enterprises I think that Come to England must go to ee the enterprise and to learn about the performance, because sometimes Come to England don`t know a lot about the enterprise and its performance.

Response from Come2England

Hi Javier - thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately we have many partner companies all around London and it is not always possible for us to go and visit each of them. Our most precious resource are our customers and their feedback, we are happy if you are happy! In case of problems we always invite students to come and visit our office in order to try an internship change or solve the problem in the most effective and fastest way. With good communication between all parties we believe that any problem can be solved :)

Kind regards,

They don't care about us

1/10

You have to pay too much money for a minimun service, they don't know where is exactly situated the company in the city who they send you and the real information of your timetable and your real tasks.

Response from Come2England

Hi Sergio, we're sorry to hear you weren't satisfied with the service provided. For privacy reason timetable details are usually given directly to the intern by the hosting company without Come2England interference but we'll make treasure of your review for future occasions!

Kind regards,
