Beyond Academy Internship in Seoul, South Korea! :)

Beyond Academy is the best program to apply for when looking to work abroad and grow in your career path. I had 24/7 support from my Community Leader as well as from the rest of the staff via email if I ever had a question. I learned so much at my internship and I got to experience a lot of different things (food, culture, nightlife, daytime, etc). I even improved on my Korean language skills :). It was my first time stepping out of my comfort zone and Beyond Academy made it happen so thank you Beyond Academy! I truly appreciate this opportunity! :)

Pros
  • Community Leader always responsive and helpful (24/7 support)
  • Learning new things everyday and having a career coach was so helpful)
  • Gain confidence in Korea culture and language.
Cons
  • the staff at my accommodation were not that friendly

Beyond Academy in Seoul review

My time with Beyond Academy has been super amazing. All through the process they have been informative and helpful, answered all my questions and made sure I was never in the dark about anything, giving all the info I needed about the pragmatics of my travel. My tour guide Alize in particular has been absolutely wonderful and so so willing to always help, no matter the challenging situations we seem to find ourselves in, and the flexibility and freedom given to decide on the sort of activities we want to do has been great. I also feel that Alize's understanding of the city really meant that we have been able to get a feel for the city from the perspective of a true local. The support offered by having a guide also meant that someone was there to support you to ease the hard transition and hold your hand during the hard moments, and help navigate things I would've been very stressed to do alone, like checking in, finding my workplace, and navigating the language barrier. It also means when you get here, it's impossible to feel lonely. The activities have been varied and exciting too, though I felt in the winter months in particular it was harder to find things to do due to the temperature - I definitely recommend the warmer months. The complimentary gifts, meals, historical tours and even trips (!!) from Beyond Academy, as well as their willingness to offer support particularly with Covid difficulties (i.e. covering some of my hotel quarantine cost) have been a lovely addition. There were a few hitches, particularly due to Covid, where I believe I could have been warned a little earlier about things (e.g. travelling elsewhere for my 90 day tourism visa when Japan is in fact closed), or the fact that my internship wasn't directly related to the field I applied to, due to many of their partners being unable to take someone on during the pandemic. But overall, the programme has given me such a unique means of exploring Seoul, and offered immediate support at every turn when these things haven't quite gone right. It is their willingness to always help and improve your experience, that will stick with me. I think I couldn't have experienced Seoul in a way that had a more perfect blend of support and structure alongside giving you the freedom and knowledge to navigate the city yourself.

Pros
  • Amazing support
  • Flexibility
  • Incredible local insight
Cons
  • Slightly lacking in preparation in some areas
  • Accommodation was very student-like

Everything worked out amazingly

The Beyond team really went out of their way to help make everything happen. After failing my first interview, Krystal did an hour-long video call with me and helped me work on my confidence and interview skills. Her advice helped so much and I was successful on my next one! I was all set for my Seoul program but due to covid situation unfortunately I was not able to go as planned. Beyond had already lined up the internship but as I couldn’t delay my start date, I ended up doing most of it online. I’m actually very glad with how things turned out. My internship was 2.5 months and my colleagues really made me feel part of the team. I also managed to sit in on many client and agency zoom meetings which was cool!. My company is a mid to high-end fashion brand based in Seoul that’s now expanding their marketing reach to the US. So everything actually worked out super well. I hope to join Beyond again in summer 2022!

Hi Jessica! We do offer accommodation as part of our overseas internship programme, which you can select as an add-on option when you apply.
