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

I did an internship in Sydney. This was my first internship I've ever done I chose to do an internship in the finance field. Going into this internship i had no expectations because i wanted to gain experience and bring it back home hoping to find a career in the finance sector. This internship was better than i expected. Work was fun, Housing was close to public transport and close to the city, program advisor was very helpful and checked up on you to make sure everything was alright. Overall, this internship blew my mind and would recommend this to anyone in school or even looking to gain experience in a field they are interested in.

Global Experiences is absolutely amazing and I am so grateful I had the opportunity to come to Sydney. I have traveled a lot with my family and visited dozens of cities, but I have never loved a place as such as I love Sydney. I felt comfortable from the moment I arrived and Andrea (our program director) was so welcoming and she became like my overseas "mom." I am only 19 years old and am taking a gap year before college, so I applied for a Global Experience internship to gain a sense of independence and have a better understanding of what it is like to live without my parents and attend a job each day. I was paired with a fantastic internship and I really learned what it was like to be a part of the "working world" rather than just attend classes at school. I am so grateful for the opportunity I had with Global and I came home with a much greater understanding of who I am as a person and felt that I really grew from this experience. The housing was safe and we had our own kitchen / washer & dryer which was great. I loved my roommates and I know we will keep in touch even when we are all back in the U.S.

My time in Dublin has been nothing short of life changing and just overall fun. It is truley hard to put into words what I have experienced between the culture, my internship, and the friends I have made. Coming over originally I didn't think the semester would go this smoothly or fast.
My internship couldn't have been more perfect for my field of interest or making connections. Right away my coworkers and my boss made me feel apart of their family. I have honestly never had a boss as great as the one I did. She was extremely understanding when I wanted to travel or even take a personal day. She knew I was an intern and that I was helping them more than they were helping me, in terms of their work load. (She even said that). Even my CEO made me feel extremely welcomed right away. I couldn't have asked for a better placement for a job this semester.
Even outside of that, exploring Dublin was unbelievable, the night life, the scenery and the people. Some of the nicest people I have ever met as well as some of the nicest views I have ever seen traveling around the country! I would highly recommend interning in Dublin, it is a once in a life time opportunity!

How can this program be improved?
I was very disappointed in the Griffith College accommodation. It was a bunch of little things that I just did not enjoy. The staff also wasn't the most friendly.
