Absolute Fantastic

Last summer I traveled to Singapore for a two months internship in Singapore. I always wanted to visit Asia and was told Singapore was the most modern and richest city/country in Asia.

Absolute Internship were fantastic in all the aspects of, they setup my marketing internship, making me feel welcome, making friends and helped me understand the local culture.
I would recommend Singapore to anyone considering doing an internship overseas as it gives you both personal life experiences as well as professional experiences. My biggest advice to other students is to check out Singapore. The country is such a underrated destination.

A+ Experience

If you're debating whether or not to intern in Singapore, you absolutely should! This was a once in a lifetime experience and I’m so grateful I had the chance to do it last summer.

This summer in Singapore was full of adventure, work and laughter. From setting up clean, awesome housing to straight-forward visa to a brilliant internship - Absolute did it all.
Interning in Singapore was easily the best decision I've made in my life. Since the start of the program, Absolute staff was so welcoming. I didn't know what to expect when I arrived, but the staff made me feel comfortable and helped me adapt to the local culture through the many events-, meetups and trips in the weekends.

Honestly though - the best part of the program is the people that you meet. I met so many incredibly great people and made friends from all part of the world.
After a summer in Singapore, you'll for sure come back with awesome memories and stories to share! I'd highly recommend the program.

Top Organization!!

I found out about Absolute Internship online. My biggest concern when applying to the program was the legitimacy of the program and that it would be a program with only American students. However, the program was as structured with students from all around the world (very international), fun and professional as it's advertised. The process from the moment I paid the program deposit was very smooth. Visa-, interviews with employers- and arrival in Singapore went very smooth.

I met lots of other interns through the program and we all lived in the same location. I didn't expect to bond so quickly with the other interns. I made so many good friends that I'm still in contact with. My roommate became one of my best friends. She was from the U.K. Our program coordinator was awesome and always there for us. She knew everything about the city from the best places to visit to the best street food to taste. A rockstar! Singapore was amazing and I would recommend the program to anyone who's interested to intern in Asia. An unforgettable summer and experience. Thank you!!

How can this program be improved?
A good idea would be to offer it year-round so students can take part of it during winter as well.

My Awesome Summer in Singapore with Absolute Internship :)

I'm very satisfied and happy with the support I received from absolute from the application phase to the end of the program. Absolute was prompt and answered all my emails fast, communication was always great. The visa process was made easy. I can’t really find anything to complain on.

I was placed with a event planning agency which I initially was hoping to intern in. I was not used to working 9 to 6, but got used to it after a week. I'm particularly satisfied with the absolute staff in Singapore. She was very resourceful and helped me taking advantage of the time outside of my internship. All the events and trips that were included in the program were great too. I would easily recommend this program to anyone who wants to spend a summer in the best city in Asia - Singapore is incredible!

A great experience

Thanks to absolute internship, I had the most beautiful and rewarding experiences. I spent 3 months of internship in Singapore.
The supervisors are young, dynamic and help us the slightest worry. Everything is done to make us feel good. Indeed, Absolute Internship takes care of everything: work permit, housing, internship, transport card and phone card, trips and activities on weekends.
I met a lot of wonderful people and I'm still in touch with them.
I discovered a new culture and a new way of working. ..
I recommend this agency to all students who wish to do an internship abroad!

JUST DO IT!

I had a lovely time in Singapore thanks to Absolute Internship support. My internship in public relations was challenging-, fun- and I learned so much. It took some time to get used to commuting with public transport, instead of car but it was definitely a summer where I learned so much. The people at work and in the city were incredibly kind and I loved immersing myself in the Asian culture. Singapore is a beautiful city, the food was so delicious! I received support whenever I needed from the Absolute staff and they really made things easier for me while abroad.

My advice to other students who are looking into interning in Singapore are:

1. JUST DO IT! You'll have memories for life and make friendships from people from all around the world. I still keep in contact with the people I met through the program.
2. Attend as many events that Absolute put together! They are awesome and included, so why not?
3. Go for 2 months at least. I did the one month and I wished I would have stayed at least another month. Time flies while you are abroad.

Absolute Internship was a blast! :)

My summer in Singapore with Absolute Internship was a blast.

Housing: Clean, central and had everything that I needed such as kitchen, dishwasher. I loved it.

Internship: I was placed with an international pharmaceutical company. I chose pharmaceutical as my preferred industry. It was a great match, I had a supportive mentor at my company and colleagues that cared for me.

Activities: There were activities planned and organized for us every weekend which was built into the program. I loved that we always had things to do and that the absolute staff cared for us. She was a great resource during the summer.

Visa: Easy. Emailing back and forth with the Absolute team and getting the visa was much easier than I thought it would be.

Students: Made really cool friends through the program that I still have contact with. Great program to make friends from all over the world. My roommate was from England for example and we grew really close during the summer.

Overall: Great experience and great program. If I could do the program all over again, I would without any doubt.

Quick responses-, friendly emails- and always professional.

From the day I sent in my application online, Absolute was always there for me. Quick responses-, friendly emails- and always professional. I really appreciated the love and care the program put into me and my program. I was placed with a large Dutch multinational (think 100+ staff) and felt a bit over and nervous before my first day. But the absolute staff was really understanding and made me feel so good and confident. The housing was excellent. We had a pool, gym.. do I need to say more? It was really well located and was very clean. All that we needed.

A visa can be difficult and complicated but the program and the absolute staff was very easy to work with and made the entire process smooth. I made friends from France, Spain and so many other countries through the program.

Absolute was an amazing experience and I'd highly recommend it!

How can this program be improved?
I wish I stayed the entire summer. One month was way too short!

Awesome mix of fun, travel, professional and networking!

I have had an absolutely awesome experience in Singapore with Absolute! I did the two months program. Every component of the program was well-thought planned in advance and simply great. It was the perfect mix of fun and professional. Especially the visa process was super well explained! Absolute did a great job with the visa process and helped me really facilitate this process.

We had great cultural activities scheduled each week and even a weekend included to an island in Indonesia. I never felt bored or lonely with the program. You make so many cool and awesome friends through the program! I can't recommend it enough. Singapore was a blast and I was so grateful I found this program. My favorite memory of the summer was the people that I met through the Absolute program. They do a great job in selecting the students who go on this.
