The best company to use to make your dream internship a reality

I recently completed an internship with Intern Abroad HQ and I cannot recommend this company enough- my trip was an incredible experience which is down to their professionalism and exemplary organisation. I found the company to be extremely helpful, with any questions I had being responded to quickly and efficiently. I felt safe and secure when travelling to my internship location, as I knew that I was able to contact Intern Abroad HQ at any time if I needed. If you are a student looking for an internship to broaden your knowledge of other cultures and to help progress in your desired career, this is the company to use!

Archipelagos - Samos

Living accommodations and food were not great, but the location and the people were amazing. There is no air-con and the bathrooms are quite disgusting. A lot of the time for food you eat mostly bread for every meal of the day. Go into it with a project already in mind, if you do not go in with a project in mind you will spend a lot of time and many days thinking of one and/or sitting around. Always say yes to everything, you will regret not doing things when at the internship, air adds to the entire experience and makes it that much more memorable.

Greece Internship Experience

We had a group of 23 students that went together on a 2 week internship experience in Greece where we worked on a few different projects in the country which was exciting. We also had plenty of time to see the beautiful historical aspects of the area and even go on a short cruise. We had some changes throughout our planning process that were handled wonderfully by the staff at InternHQ. Once we were in Greece the team at Cerca Abroad took over our experience and it was amazing. InternHQ does a great job choosing the in-country companies that they work with.

Pros
  • Many different opprotunities
  • Historic area
  • Safe
Cons
  • Big city

An Experience To Remember!

I went on a six-week internship to Greece with Intern Abroad HQ and was working in Marine Mammal and Sea Turtle Conservation Research at the Archipelagos Institute of Marine Conservation. I always had someone to rely on with this company if I had any questions or concerns, and they are very proactive in ensuring their interns get the best out of their experiences. You can tell they've been doing this a very long time and companies like this help take the stress out of finding the right internship for you. I was lucky enough to have Dallas as my point of contact with Intern Abroad HQ and she always went above and beyond to make sure everything was going according to plan and kept in contact before, during and after the internship. Thanks Guys!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Be ready to be adaptable as anything could happen! Especially weather wise!

My experience at Archipelagos Institute of Marine Conservation

I absolutely loved my experience at Archipelagos. I learned real professional skills from the environmental conservational realm. The scientific directors and staff are wonderful people with the passion to influence future generations about the value of ecosystems. Additionally, they are true activists that dedicate their lives to conserving the ecological heritage of both marine and terrestrial services.
Although some students found their management frustrating because they have deadlines for their masters or phD, I had the honor to see their true motives which are to protect, conserve and spread awareness through monitoring ecosystem services with academic studies. I was disappointed when I realized I would not be taught to scuba dive, due to time frame issues I wish could've been addressed before I arrived. However, I gained a much broader experience in assisting in plenty of projects that matter for sustainable development.
Archipelagos Institute of Marine Conservation have locations on a couple of islands for research. I absolutely love the Lipsi location because it is the perfect authentic Greek experience. You can experience a lot on foot, the locals are kind and the food is forever imprinted on my taste buds. Samos felt more like summer camp, it was hard to explore without a car, so I recommend getting an international license before you go abroad! Both locations are among the world's biodiversity hotspots. In my whole entire life, I have never felt so harmonized with nature and my self from being geographically located within organic balance. The abundance of species is something everyone must experience because this exemplifies diverse functionality. I am forever grateful for the alignment that I harbored in the Aegean Sea.

What would you improve about this program?
More clarity on what to expect. Some students believe they will be taught how to dive when really they should expect to be helping with PhD or masters projects.

My Greek Adventure

If I were to describe my Media internship in Greece in two words it would be - 'valuable experience'. It gave me everything I needed in a way I did not expect.

I applied for my internship about six months before the departure date and throughout this whole time, I've been in contact with Dallas Boyd from Intern Abroad who has been a huge support and patiently answered all my questions and made sure I was prepared to leave.

I came to Greece with a lot of expectations about how will it work and was originally disappointed with the reality. However, it turned out to be a benefit because I had to learn how to adjust and mainly how to work independently which I'm certain will be useful in the future. Archipelagos are a very friendly organization who are doing an amazing work and I felt proud to be part of them even for just 4 weeks. I came to Archipelagos to specialize in Photography and boost my portfolio with wildlife and nature images but I ended up doing much more than that. I got to document all the amazing surveys other people were doing which helped me learn more about conservation etc. I photographed dissections going on in the lab which has definitely been a new experience for me. I edited a video for Archipelagos and I helped improve their website and reorganize their image library. I felt like I was really making a difference and getting experience in my field which was the whole point of the internship.

I'm very grateful that Intern Abroad are making these internships affordable and helped me get the experience I needed. I would definitely consider this organization if I were to do some other internship in the future.

What would you improve about this program?
For the Media internship, it would be a huge benefit if Archipelagos hired a Media manager as sometimes our work was quite unclear and unorganized.
