Incredible Experience

My time in Tokyo was honestly the best experience ever. I was quite nervous before leaving but the help and support that the Beyond team gave me was really what made the entire experience so great. From helping me prepare for interviews to even advising me on what to pack for the trip! I arrived at a similar time as another intern, and we were picked up from the airport by the community manager. Being able to meet others who were new in town during orientation really helped me settle in as well, and my worries went away pretty quickly.

The internship itself was fantastic. I worked hard but it was really worth it. My team (and the company in general) was really international and I was able to work on a range of projects that put my marketing degree to the test. Tokyo was very different to home but more the reason to love it. I got to try lots of local Japanese food that we just don't get in the UK. I have to say that I’m completely in love with Japanese food now, and despite my failed attempt at making sushi again after our class in Tokyo, I’ve bought a new Japanese cookbook! Most Japanese people in Tokyo speak a little English, but despite the language barrier everyone was just so friendly and nice. I’m planning to visit Japan again with my family next year, and hopefully see the sakura season this time round!.

Life changing experience in Tokyo

I went to Tokyo back in January, having no work experience and I having never travelled by myself before it was definitely one of the best decision I have ever made. My company was amazing and I grew so much professionally and personally over the 2 months. I had always wanted to go to Japan but I always thought it would be too hard to organise so never thought that I could actually live and work in Tokyo. Thanks to Beyond Academy who were there for every step of the journey and really made it an incredible experience. I really have to thank Krystal who was like a mentor, I had my first admission call with her and she helped me in answering my giant list of questions. She stayed in close contact with me throughout the program and even joined a few of the events in Tokyo which were amazing. The program has also helped me build my confidence and my CV. I truly love Japan and can’t wait to go back.

I Love Tokyo!!

I had the best adventure in Tokyo thanks to Beyond academy. Tokyo was fascinating, I loved every second and I wish I could go back. I loved the area of our accommodation and was able to walk (and cycle) around most of central Tokyo which was nice. My intern company was a startup based in Shibuya, a super busy and fun hub in central Tokyo. Aya from the Beyond Team was amazing and was like my bf for the last 6 weeks. There were so many events and I went to as many as I could but i never failed to make our family (intern) dinner every 2 weeks at an izakaya. Tokyo is the most magical place, if you are thinking of interning, do it. Thank you so much Beyond team! I am really going to miss everyone!
