Smooth Sailing

My experience as an intern in South Korea would not have gone as smoothly and perfectly as it did had it not been for the support of Herlyn and everyone from AIP. Herlyn organised it all. From airport pick-up, to accomodation, to assigning me the most suitable internship organisation, I did not have to worry about a thing. As a result, this l meant that I could focus on my internship and exploring the country. I created unforgettable memories and cannot thank AIP enough for this wonderful opportunity :)

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
If I did this all over again, I would probably manage my time better. There was so much to explore that it was a shame that I did not have enough time to see everything.

Memorable Internship

AIP was very helpful with my transition to South Korea. I would have struggled a bit without them as they helped me with the accommodation, airport pickup, my sim card, and public transport card. AIP assisted me whenever I needed to contact them but their response time would be 1-2 days, which is understandable since there were other students that needed to be taken care of. I personally wish AIP would reply within a day in case of assistance or emergencies. But overall, I had a terrific experience with the help of AIP and I wouldn't be able to do much without them. I recommend AIP for those wanting to travel abroad and be an intern in a country you wish to try.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Just be yourself and have fun experiencing the journey, you only do it once so make the most of it and continue the ride.

Best decision ever

Going to Seoul with AIP was the best decision I’ve made so far! The company I’ve worked at was the best and had the kindest people! They immediately took me in with a lot of love and support, despite my Korean not being the best! And knowing that someone from AIP was always available to contact if I should have any troubles was so assuring to know! Big thanks to Herlyn especially for that!!! I felt safe the whole time through and made so many new friends during my time abroad! 100% would recommend :)

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
I went to Gwangjang Market with a friend and ate chicken feet at the same food stand that Gordon Ramsay ate!!!
  • So many things to do and discover

Internship in Seoul

I had a wonderful time over my 2 months in Seoul - across both my work and travel experience in Korea.

AIP matched me with the perfect company for my marketing internship, and I couldn't be happier with my work experience. They took care of my accomodation well, and kept in contact with me throughout the journey.

I have really cherished immersing myself in the unique cultural landscape of Korea, from food to history to shopping!

Very grateful to AIP for helping me get my foot in the door in an industry I am looking to work in, as well as a country I have been wanting to visit for a long time.

Marketing Internship Experience Abroad

During my internship, I learned practical things that will help me in my future job. I learned about using social media, advertising, marketing, creating content, analyzing data, and managing campaigns. This helped me understand more about job opportunities in business and how businesses work. The internship also taught me important skills like communication, which will be useful if I decide to pursue a career in marketing. I would like to thank AIP, especially my account manager for matching me with a company that really suit my skills.

  • A lot of food options
  • Friendly locals
  • Language barrier

Exploring Seoul

Living in Seoul has been an adventure in itself, with the vibrant cityscape, rich history, and welcoming locals. The blend of modernity and tradition created a unique backdrop for personal and professional growth. Engaging in the local culture has added depth to my overall experience.

I am grateful for the chance to contribute to meaningful projects while learning from seasoned professionals. Seoul has left an indelible mark on both my career and personal journey. This internship has been a truly enriching and transformative experience

Great internship

I did a 6 month long internship via AIP to South Korea and it was amazing! I got to learn a lot via my internship company, i couldn’t have found it without AIP. Their support throughout my whole stay was also good, they checked up on me a lot and made sure i was doing okay. It was a good experience and i am very grateful! It is a lot of work and hard work but i would go again and experience this great internship again!

Ik heb een stage van 6 maanden via AIP naar Zuid-Korea gedaan en het was geweldig! Ik heb veel mogen leren via mijn stagebedrijf, zonder AIP had ik het niet gevonden. Hun steun tijdens mijn hele verblijf was ook goed, ze controleerden me veel en zorgden ervoor dat het goed met me ging. Het was een goede ervaring en ik ben erg dankbaar! Het is veel werk en hard werken, maar ik zou opnieuw gaan en deze geweldige stage opnieuw ervaren!

Amazing Seoul Experience

Considering that I was travelling alone for the first time, it was a huge relief to have AIP guide me all throughout the process. They made sure that I am connected to other interns and met them in person. This entire internship experience gave me the opportunity to not only get outside my comfort zone, but also to introduce myself to another culture, learn about what I am passionate about, and prepare myself for my future career. My host company was very accommodating and I will surely miss my Korean friends.
