Dear seekers of professional adventure,
I dedicate this message to those curious, brave and self-confident guys, who has already made one step forward to your journey for internship abroad.
I am Nataliya, from Ukraine, a 3rd year NanoFar PhD student in France and Spain. I had an opportunity to make my professional internship in other country and gain more experience. I knew I want to try German lab and life experience as well.
My PhD project is related to the development of a new complex approach for Rheumatoid arthritis treatment, so I continued to discover more about autoimmune diseases, I had fantastic time at the German lab, handling mice: work in vitro, in vivo and ex vivo testing anti-inflammatory drugs of the new generation.
Go and check what Berlin is preparing for you!

How can this program be improved?
No complains, just continue to grow up working more on the development and covering of new fields of Natural Sciences, etc.

I participated in the Cultural Vistas Internship Program in Germany during the summer of 2015. To improve my German I took one month of classes at a language school in Berlin. I then spent the next to months in a very exciting internship with Fields GmbH. My internship experience was everything I expected and more. Not only didn't I improve my German proficiency and increase my work experience, but I also made so many German friends and professional connections. I was very nervous before going on the program, but the support staff at Cultural Vistas helped me through the entire process. They also made sure to create events for networking and connecting with other participants. Throughout my experience I truly felt the support of Cultural Vistas and I am happy to say my life has changed dramatically since my time abroad.

How can this program be improved?
The one thing I would change is more days of orientation. The orientation was informational but seemed a little short for my liking. I would have liked to have more time with the staff and other participants in Berlin in the beginning.

I went to Buenos Aires in 2013 through the cultural vistas fellowship. There countless opportunities to make friends throughout the program. I became good friends with my roommate and fellow cultural vistas fellow. I was welcomed into the friend group of my "host mom's" son. My coworkers at my internship were unbelievably friendly and welcoming. And I found friends with a common interest in Buenos Aires's ultimate frisbee community. I'll never forget the relationships that the fellowship helped me develop.

I was fortunate enough to travel abroad to Germany with the help of Cultural Vistas. They provided accommodations, insurance providers, and a language course when I first arrived in Berlin. They also arranged an internship with a world renowned research institution that I would otherwise not have the opportunity to work with. Overall the experience is a huge step forward in my academic experience and I would suggest it to everyone.

How can this program be improved?
An introduction upon arrival of new students or participants in your program would be useful. This is not a huge remark.
