Beyond experience

I had an excellent time and thoroughly enjoyed the Beyond Academy activities. My favourite was definitely going to Cambridge, kind of wish there were more out of London trips too. Also really enjoyed the pub quiz activity and game night. The community coordinators were extremely fun and very nice and supportive. However I do wish there were more career building/advice activities or lessons. For example maybe meeting with industry professionals or one on one coaching with an industry professional.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Go for as many Beyond activities as you can!
Pros
  • Good community
  • Good activities
  • Amazing community coordinators
Cons

Interning abroad

My time abroad was a journey of self-discovery and personal growth. Stepping out of my comfort zone forced me to confront challenges and adapt to unfamiliar environments, fostering resilience and self-reliance. Whether it was navigating public transportation in a bustling city, each obstacle became an opportunity for growth. To future interns, embrace uncertainty and be open to new experiences and perspectives. Flexibility is key when navigating unfamiliar environments, and being adaptable will help you overcome challenges and make the most of unexpected opportunities.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
Mexican food, never had it before.
Pros
  • career coaching
  • Adventurous
  • meeting new people
Cons
  • Commute times
  • cultural sensitivity

Program experience with Beyond Academy

The program was a remarkable journey that significantly contributed to my professional growth and skill development. I did my internship at a charity for 6 months. This internship has undeniably played a pivotal role in my professional and personal development. The experience throughout the program has been wonderful. Not just the help received with the internship but also the community events organised. It allowed me to make new friends and network with other interns. I sincerely thank the Beyond Academy team for offering such a rewarding experience. I wholeheartedly recommend this program to anyone seeking a comprehensive and enriching internship experience.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
The most nerve-racking moment during the program was my first day at the internship. Walking into an entirely new workplace filled with unfamiliar faces and procedures was daunting. There was an inherent pressure to perform well right from day one. I wanted to make a positive impression, showcase my skills, and demonstrate my value to the team. This added to my nervousness as I wanted to ensure I met or exceeded the standards set for me. Despite these nerves, however, the first day turned out to be a pivotal learning experience. It pushed me out of my comfort zone and taught me the importance of adaptability, quick learning, and resilience in a professional setting. Over time, I gained confidence, built relationships, and grew both personally and professionally.

Feedback

Absolutely loved my experience with Beyond Academy!! Super friendly and professional staff (especially Stella and Izzy❤️). The girls were supportive, always answered at any time and helped throughout my entire journey. Everything was top-notch from start to finish. I would highly recommend Beyond Academy for those who are looking for professionals who will take care of them while they study/work abroad. I really loved going to the Top secret stand up club and to the Savoy Theater to see the musical Pretty woman.

Beyond academy

This program has been the best experience of my life. The staff was very communicative and always made sure eveyone in the program was taken care of. The search for my internship was super easy and I’d definitely recommend this to anyone! This program is good for anyone wanting to mix the experience of traveling and work life in one situation. Not only was I able to find my path in my career but I was also able to explore a new place with new people. I think anyone who has even had a thought about working overseas this is the program for you!

Pros
  • Great space to stay
  • Events planned all the time
  • Great location

A valuable experience

The reason that I applied for this programme was to know whether I would be able to work in this country. And I saw the possibility.

English is not my first language, so I was always afraid of using it. However, during the programme, I had a lot of opportunities to practice and improve my English knowledge. Now I feel confident and ready to have meaningful relationships with other people using the language.

It was not only about the language; it was also good to learn the work culture in the UK. I was working for a marketing company, and it came to my mind that communication is very important. I saw many people giving feedback to each other relentlessly to get to the best result. It also helped me learn how to work as a team, and I believe this is something you wouldn't get to learn when you are a student and often just write essays stuck in your room all day long.

London is a multicultural city. It was such an opportunity for me to get used to various regional accents and experience many different cultures. You would get all sort of Indian, Korean, Chinese, English, and other types of foods, and surprisingly they are authentic. During the programme, I was also able to meet a lot of people from different countries. We had community events twice a week from Beyond Academy, and it was interesting enough for me to meet people from India, Nigeria, America, etc.

London has a lot of things to see and experience. Many attractions are located in Central London altogether, so it was easy for me to look around the area and visit them. Although the hustle and bustle of the city, there were always new things coming up whenever I entered in a different area, which kept me enjoyable and excited.

I would like to give thanks to the team of Beyond Academy for giving me such a valuable experience. I believe that people have to see and experience as much as possible, especially when they are young. Hope they keep up the good work.

Pros
  • You can easily get all different types of food from different countries
  • And meet many people from different cultures
Cons
  • Your accommodation might not be so close to your workplace
  • Sometimes you'd feel overwhelmed because of the busy area and crowded places in the city

Beyond Academy London 2023

I enjoyed my time in london with beyond academy and Jet Media Network as a marketing intern! It was a great experience and I even got to go to fun content shoots with celebrities in the sports industry. My office was soo welcoming and I always felt like I had something to do and was appreciated! I love London and I now decided to come back to study my master's soon! The beyond staff were so caring and welcoming and made moving to London alone such a breeze for me! Olivia was awesome and I hope to hangout with her again upon returning to London. This experience was amazing and I wouldn't change a thing about it.

Pros
  • Location
  • Work
  • People
Cons
  • No AC (its just a London thing)
