Entertainment Internship

Definitely recommend this program to other people! kgy is so kind and full of commiment
kgy offers like a lot of choices to choose from like for me when I applied like there was like an education teaching aspect, a business aspect, a non-profit organization aspect, so literally anyone wants to come to Korea for an internship definitely recommend to go through kgy
You guys are the best!
Usually in the U.S people are very independent they like to do things on their own, but here in Korea like everyone especially at work, everyone works together as a team like they're so cooperative. At my company other people help me like working as a team I really like that a lot and everyone has an equal role like knowing how to work in a team!
This internship has been like a hundred percent good match for me I don't think I would have been able to find something like this without kgy’s help! Thank you

Reliable internship company

I am thankful that KGY for being so reliable and for always offering to help me.
I felt very safe while talking to KGY. I am super grateful that I could rely on the help of KGY, as there wasn’t much time left until the internship started, I was excited and collected a lot new memories and experiences during my internship abroad.Thank you for accompanying me on my first day, I am really happy that i am able to have such a great start into the internship thanks to KGY. Thank you so much for finding me such a nice internship:)

great opportunity

It felt a bit overwhelming just because there was so much information and new things I had to discover for my internship but the team is great has been great, they are friendly, some of them speak French and I love the atmosphere already.
For my first day on my internship I had a meeting with the CEO and he explained to me the whole story behind the company It was interesting and I could tell he is really passionate about it so it’s great. But it has been good so far and I had a lot of company dinners and I was really excited about that.
I 100% enjoyed my time in Korea and happy I had a great internship experience

2 months in a skin care beauty company in Seoul

I did an internship in South Korea in Seoul as a beauty and Skin Care intern. How I found out about korea gapyear, basically we were several students from the same class and same university that wanted to come to korea and one of my classmates she introduced me to a korea gapyear and she gave me the email address at the beginning i didn't know about the program at all and then later on I thought that korea gapyear turned out to be very beneficial for me because it was my first time in Asia and I really wanted to feel that comfortable for my first-ever trip alone and so decided to like let Korea GapYear do the job it really helped me a lot and I would definitely like do it again
Come to Korea gapyear if you want to go to come to korea, they will help you with everything every paperwork for internship

6 months KGY Internship

I think KGY is great when it comes to guidance. It was my first time in Korea and I had a lot of questions and stumbled across some problems in there but I felt relieved when I knew that KGY was there if I had any concerns. I learned a lot about me and my ways of working at the internship and I feel like this will be very useful in my future! KGY helped me a lot finding out how to do stuff and they also gave me the documents I needed for my university and accreditation. I’m pretty satisfied with what I did because I like to do editing a lot and I also mentioned that to KGY that's what I mainly did during my internship, making a lot of videos, and creating and editing them.
So thank you so much for everything Korea Gap Year

Great program!

The program was the reason I could come to Korea in the first place. The staff was very helpful when it came to finding a suitable internship! I could always contact them if I needed help or was unsure about something! They were also always nice and friendly! I was also happy to learn that they offered activities and even educational trips themselves! I can recommend this program to everyone who wants to travel to Korea without worries!! I had an incredible time and could travel and work at the same time!

  • Good communication
  • Very helpful and much information
  • additional activities

Unforgettable Experience!

My internship experience in South Korea was really really great to the point that I was just enjoying every moment of my working hours together with my colleagues. KoreaGapYear has been really dedicated, consistent and gave their best to support me from the beginning until the end of my internship placement. Most especially Bella & Olivia nim. My experience was really memorable for me and I will really treasure everything what I’ve learned with them. I enjoyed my stay so much and with the help of KGY it is really one of the best journey of my life. If I will be given a chance to make another experience I would definitely go ask help from KGY.

  • Becoming a quick learner, maturity & independent
  • Experiencing the things I’ve never tried
  • Being brave and open minded
  • No cons super great experience!

Best Choice for Korea

My stay in Korea was amazing because of Korea Gap Year. From the first email, the entire staff at Korea Gap Year truly cares about providing you with the best experience possible. I had the privilege of having Bella coordinate my internship/Korean journey and she was fantastic in every way. The internship application process is more thorough than in similar programs meaning, your specific interests and needs are taken into consideration throughout the entire application process (I worked with other programs which were far more vague). In addition, after you are placed in an internship you get to select your housing from several options provided by Korea Gap Year. My housing location was great since it was very close to the subway and plenty of stores/restaurants. While in Korea Bella and Olivia would consistently check in on me and answer any questions I had regarding Korean living. Of course, my internship (in marketing) was perfect and exactly what I was looking for. My host company's staff were all very friendly even taking me out on several social activities. I cannot recommend Korea Gap Year enough and would suggest anyone still deciding to at least interview with them and I promise you will not be disappointed!
