I didn't feel like going on the other side of the planet on my own, that's why I have chosen Alliance Abroad Group.

This experience was unique and amazing ! I really appreciated that AAG helps you with the administrative procedures. And it's a real security to have already signed a work contract before I landed in Oz. I really want to thanks Lisa & Carolyn for everything. I will be grateful my whole life for all of this!

To be honest, at first, I was like : I'm gonna stay 6 months then travel a little bit and go back to Europe. But now that my 6 months program is finished I plan to stay 6 more months and why not another year ?
The work experience was fantastic, and living in Sydney is great ! I fell in love with this city. There's so many things to explore in Australia though! That's why now I'm going to travel and go with the flow..! It's a miracle ! I wasn't kind of a self confident person but this program impacts my life in a way I didn't expect. It made me strong person! I think this kind of experience is unique, opens your eyes on so many things.

I grew up both on the professional and personal aspects here. I think I found the meaning of "happiness" in Oz. I mean the rhythm of life is great, the weather, the landscapes, the food, people are so nice. I can't explain it, you need to live it!

I 100% recommend AAG for your future program guys !
If you are still hesitating about what to do just think about a quote that I've learnt here :
"If you don't get out of the box you've been raised in, you won't understand how much bigger the world is."

It was a very nice placement in a Yacht Club in Sydney.... but I was just working on Sundays.... The amount of working hours was to small..... ( 5 - 10 hours by week). I tried to contact Alliance Abroad and the employer for more hours but nothing was done... Fortunately, I found an another job in Sydney. So with my 2 Casual job, I was a very good experience. But it did not worth paying so much and working so little.....

I've just gotten back from my 6 months program in Sydney; it has been such an amazing and unforgettable experience! Thanks to AAG, I worked at the Sheraton On The Park and I couldn't ask for anything better. I was part of an international team, so I had the chance to make friends from all over the world and practise and improve my english skills. If you like being in contact with different cultures and people, this is the right place for you. During my time off, I explored the area around Sydney -its beaches and amazing national parks, especially Blue Mountains, will leave you breathless- and I've been to Cairns, Queensland for a little holiday. Snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef is a once in a lifetime experience! I saved money during my time in Australia, so I could backpacking New Zealand as well.

AAG did a terrific job. From the first time I contacted the office, they've always been very nice and detailed. They were ESSENTIAL during my job research, providing tips, interviews and plenty of support. They helped for tax refound, accomodation and bank issues. I really want to thank my team leaders Lisa and Lexi for her wonderful job. If you are looking for a safe, guided and high quality support, don't hesitate!

Initially, I was overjoyed when I received news about finding a placement in Melbourne, Australia. What could possibly be better than a Visa that permits both a stable source of income and a holiday in Australia?! Unfortunately, that hasn't been the case, in a sad turn of events, I've yet to receive anytime off in the three months I've worked, to explore Oz. My hotel is short-staffed, which as permitted me from experiencing the "holiday" in my "Work/Holiday Visa". I was hired as a part-time employee, but I typically work full-time, without receiving any of the benefits. When I inquired about taking annual leave (seeing as I did not move to the other side of the world to spend all my time working) I was denied and was told that my annual leave would come to me in the form of a pay check at the end of my contract. If you could only imagine my frustration. I'm very disappointed. If I had known that this would be my experience, I would not have participated in AAG. However, I say this baring in mind, that I am one participant. This is my story. It's not to say this will be your experience. On a positive note, I work with people from all over the world. It has brought me immense joy meeting people from all walks of life. I think overall, if I had been afforded time to travel, I would have been satisfied with my experience.

Dear Hayley,
We're sorry that this experience has not been what you've hoped. That's disappointing for us as well. Our goal is to make the experience a great match with your needs and goals and the work experience. I have sent an inquiry to our Australia office and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

The Team at AAG.
