As part of this programme. staying in the UK for nearly 2 months allowed me to get to know more about the country's culture, people and politics. Doing an internship programme like this is a great opportunity to deepen your understanding of the career you wish to pursue. Although the working environment and future prospect may differ in different countries, by actively participating in discussions with colleagues you will gain a lot of insight into your career path and how things can work in alternatives. Supervisors are always willing to teach and share, so do not hesitate to ask questions!
One of the best experiences during the programme was the international party that the accommodation provider threw. We were invited to taste homemade food from the country's were other residents came from!
My best tip would be to plan ahead before you arrive and have plans for every weekend you are in London so you can make the most out of the experience.
