Hi Grace! Airfare is not included in your program tuition. Janissa had great advice to book early and look for the cheapest and shortest flight.

Great Program in an Awesome City

My experience in Florence through Global Experiences was great. I had never left the country before this trip and was a bit nervous as expected. GE was really helpful in not only preparing me, but in placing me with my employer and providing on-the-ground assistance. I was matched with a student travel agency where I was a communications intern. GE was great with preparing me for my interview. I got to experience real life office environment, the flow of communication between employees, overcoming challenging tasks and the overall camaraderie of a workplace. Aside from all of this was the intimidating language barrier and cultural differences. I definitely came back to the states more confident in my abilities. Another cool thing about GE were the trips included in the program cost. We saw some beautiful regions of Italy. I also made some great friends from the housing GE provided. We all spent a lot of time together in class, exploring the city and museums , checking out nightlife, the awesome culinary scene and just relaxing after work. I really had an unforgettable experience in Florence.

How can this program be improved?
It took a while for me to get placed with my employer once I arrived in Europe. The match was fine, it was just a bit of a waiting game.

Fun,Challenging, Exciting and Life Changing

When I first became part of GE's 3-month internship program in Florence, I was not sure what to expect. Of course I was excited, scared and unsure of my future.... however, when I arrived I knew I chose the right path. My apartment was right in the center of town with roommates from around the world (who were all in the same boat as I was). My internship was so great that I even returned and worked for the company a few years later. Who would have thought I could do event planning overseas! Before heading to Florence I never would have expected to call a foreign country home. Don't miss this chance. With the support of the GE staff you can have a fun stress free experience you will not regret!
