Yes, I recommend this program

Anglo Educational Experiences has provided a great experience for my semester abroad. I couldn't have asked for a more supportive group. Struggling with homesickness and the many questions I had, I knew that I could always go to the Anglo group. They were very well prepared for the most part and were professional with interactions.

What would you improve about this program?
The housing for this program could be greatly improved. Although the location was excellent, living standards and basic needs were not met. ISH housing was tight and disgusting.

I would also like to say that some parts of the internship such as the environment and the work involved were not advertised well. There should be more of a conversation between interns and Anglo about the work they will be doing as well as what they can expect to get for conditions.
Response from Anglo Educational Services

Hi Emily
Thank you for taking the time to review the AES London Semester Program. We’re glad that you enjoyed your internship and your time in London.
The housing for your programme was arranged directly by your university and was not provided by AES, so unfortunately we can’t address your issues.
The majority of our interns have a skype/telephone interview with their placement which gives students the opportunity to discuss the exact details of the internship, what the work environment is like etc. Once the placement is confirmed AES sends details of the company and students are able to contact the company directly. After the initial call with AES, if students have any questions about any aspect of their programme the AES staff are always on hand to answer them. We will certainly take on board your comments.
I hope you have a safe flight home.

I participated in the program in 2003, and it has had a significant impact on my career and my life. I was placed in an internship with the Liberal Democrats Parliamentary Press Office. Everyone was incredibly warm and welcoming, and they strove to give me an incredibly memorable experience. They invited me to a variety of meetings, social events, and conferences. I was given unique research and writing tasks. All of this gave me great insight into the world of politics--a world in which I thought I wanted to pursue a career. Instead, I realized that my passion was actually more in the policy arena rather than the actual politics, and I shifted my career path. Without this internship experience and the exposure I had to such a variety of activities, I am not sure if I would have ended up where I am today.

What would you improve about this program?
I am unsure of how the program has changed since 2003 (over 10 years ago!) but the only part that I wish had been different was that I wish there had been more people in my program. The year I went, there were only 2 of us, and we did not live together. I had a couple of friends on study abroad in London so that helped, but it could get a bit lonely in the evenings, especially being so far away from friends and family.

Job Title
Student Services Manager

What position do you hold at Anglo Education? What has been your career path so far?

I have been at Anglo Educational Services since 2007, starting as the Centre Coordinator, then moving to Centre Manager when we upgraded our Study Centre, then to Student Services Manager in 2013. The favorite part of my job is meeting new people all the time and hearing stories from the students.

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

Always looking to improve. We are always asking students, Universities and out Internship sites for feedback so we can continue to provide a good service.

What country have you always wanted to visit?

I have worked with American students since 2007 and I have never been to America. I have always wanted to hire a van and travel all around the different states, taking in all the different cultures and trying all the different food.
