Global experiences exceeded all of my expectations. My goal before starting this program was to have a better idea of what I want to do with my future. I knew I wanted to study abroad before entering college, and I was so happy when I found out that I can get internship experience in the field I was interested at the same time. Global Experiences helped with every step of the process from the very beginning and until the end. They were always available to help with any problem whether it was about the internship or the location. I cannot thank GE enough for this once in a lifetime experience.

How can this program be improved?
The one thing I wish could be adjusted was the cost of the program. I understand this is hard to do, but I feel if the price went down more people would be able to participate in this amazing opportunity.

This semester was the only good time for me to study abroad, and my time in Dublin has given me the chance to live and experience a different culture and lifestyle, from the people I met and connected with to the amazing historical places within the city itself. My favorite memories were seeing the Book of Kells, where I got to learn about the history of its making and being able to explore Trinity College's Old Library; go and take pictures of the Cliffs of Moher and explore Belfast, and took part in a two day festival for Chinese New Year at the Irish Emigration Museum.
For future participants, I would check if the housing accommodation lets you barrow bedding items and like as I did not know about my accommodation offering that until my final day. I would also recommend using the tram luas alongside the public buses as the former gets you to places more quickly and easier to understand compared to the buses, but using both the luas and buses can help you get around Dublin (though keep an eye on how much money your spending on them). I would also recommend in exploring the city as much as you can, especially by joining groups of your interest or just going out to the bars and nightclubs.

This internship experience was extremely valuable to my professional development and growth as an individual. Being somewhat tossed in to a full time and fast paced working environment was challenging in the most positive of ways. I feel that I have learned a lot about my career field, and specifically, the areas that I don't enjoy most about it. That may seem a little funny - but I find that figuring out what it is that you don't enjoy or don't want to do is just as important as finding out where in your career field you do want to be. This internship has allowed me to gain a clearer picture of what I hope to have in my future.
London was a great city full of amazing things to see and do, and I am so happy I chose to intern here!

How can this program be improved?
The living standards at our housing were not the best - but the program staff worked hard to get things better sorted for us. I think a different housing choice in the future would give interns a better experience.

Loved the culture here, learned so much from my internship, met so many good friends and decide to stay longer. I was really pushed out of my comfort zone and was forced to meet a lot of new people. I have gone to a lot of amazing events around sudney for my internship and had great support from the GE staff. I would recommend this program to anyone especially if you are trying to gain real working experience. It was truly a unique experience.

How can this program be improved?
Better response by furnished properties they take a while to get back to you on things you need fixed.

Traveling half way around the world to Australia by myself was scary and exciting all at the same time. I could not have picked a better location let alone trip to do for my internship. I had little expectations coming into my internship because it was mainly focusing on my minor (marketing) and not my major (exercise science). I discussed this with the coordinator, Andrea, and she gave me so great advice. My boss for the internship was also very supportive and very willing to let me do what I needed to do. We communicated very well and in the end this internship exceeded my expectations. I was able to complete the exercise science portion while learning about marketing. Give your internship a chance, communicate with everyone and live it up because Australia is incredible, my favorite country I have lived in. Say yes to everything because it is a once in a life time experience, save save save (very expensive here) and figure out public transportation right away because Uber's are insane and they really add up. I love Sydney and I cant wait to come back and visit. Global experiences made this happen and I am very grateful! I learned alot not only about exercise science and marketing but about myself too and who I want to be as a person.

How can this program be improved?
A faster response from furnished properties when issues arise in the apartment. Other than that the program was great! Exceeded my expectations
