Excellent Experience

10/10

I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this program. The support team were great, we had many fun activities planned for us and a wealth of knowledge and info available in terms of making the most out of the city and experience. Meeting fellow interns from all over the world and with different career paths was something that I really loved and benefited from, in terms of broadening my own horizons. It was an amazing opportunity to grow professionally while travelling and exploring a new city, with new friends built-in to the experience and support for any eventuality.

Couldn't recommend it more highly.

ShangWHY?

10/10

I absolutely loved the vibes of Shanghai. The city is beautiful and buzzing since there is ALWAYS something on whether you’re looking for a business/networking or social events. Shanghai staff were impeccable in recommending you just about anything from experiences to restaurants that will make you feel like a local. My work experience was relevant to my field of study and I definitely value the things that I learnt from the opportunity. However, there is no avoiding some days where you are just doing admin work. On the other hand, the social aspect and the fun factor of Shanghai is undoubtedly unmatched. There is something for everyone whether you’re into food, shopping, sight-seeing, bars and clubs and even theme parks. The accommodation was pretty comfortable and very close to the train station and the food mall! A friendly tip to not understimate the weather in Shanghai, I was there during Winter (Nov-Dec) so pack warm. In terms of communication, you can survive knowing absolutely no Chinese, but I strongly suggest that you know the super basic day-to-day speech (ordering food, taxi situation, numbers/quantity/price etc.) because it’ll make your life easier- trust me! What really made my experience memorable were the awesome people that I met over there. The group of interns were a good squad size and you really form special bonds and memories together. All in all, I came into this internship not knowing what to expect and I couldn't have asked for a better experience! I would definitely recommend this to anyone and would do it again in a heartbeat!

The past four months have been very captivating and has been a life changing experience which I will cherish for the rest of my life. I would definitely recommend participating in this because not only will it help develop your life skills but also gain invaluable life lessons! Intern Group made the journey of a life time so much calmer! They were excellent at providing lots of support and making sure you are ready for the internship this made me feel relaxed. Lalita the Associate Director of Madrid was helpful to guide me throughout the process. They were always there to direct me to the next stage, and would always get back to me via email!
It was my first time doing something of this nature, so naturally I was anxious and worried. I didn’t know what to expect. I met amazing people at the intern group which I connected with, that made my experience a lot better and will keep in contact with them, it’s safe to say I have made life long friends!
My first week I struggled with the environment because everything was out of my comfort zone. But after a few days, you adjust to the culture and the more places you visit the more you love the place. Irene is the event coordinator who plans weekly events this gave the opportunity to meet the other interns. The events were different, so I would recommend going to each event because they were fantastic and eye-opening!
So, my work had a friendly environment. They mostly spoke Spanish this left me alienated. This then motivated me to learn the language and what better place to learn it than Spain. I started understanding what they were saying but struggled speaking it. I will carry on learning the language when I go back to the UK.
I didn’t have a plan how much I was going to spend so the first month I restricted myself from overspending, which later gave the opportunity to travel around Spain; to places like Granada and Sevilla. I would recommend travelling outside of Madrid to see how different each part of the city is. It was breathtaking and honestly left me in awe. It was very emotional leaving the place not knowing when I’ll come back. It has left a strong sense of nostalgia.

How can this program be improved?

Maybe doing some sport activities.

Shanghai Times!

10/10

Honestly, TIG gave me a great opportunity to have a lifetime experience leaving in mind plenty of wonderful memories! My experience in Shanghai exceeded my expectations in too many levels and it could have never happened without the amazing group of interns and the awesome Shanghai staff. Part of my heart will always stay in Shanghai wherever I go❤️. And off course special thanks to Tommy “best event coordinator ever” and most fun person you can ever meet. What makes TIG different is that they make sure you are having an easy life abroad being surrounded by an atmosphere full of fun and energy allowing you to just fall in love with the city you are visiting. I will definitely go for it again asap!!!

My Dublin Internship Experience

10/10

My Dublin experience was a once in a life time opportunity that I enjoyed every aspect of. Dublin has a lot to offer - history, art, and music is surrounding you at all times. There is something new happening every week and peaceful days/weekend trips were easily accessible. You can find yourself on hiking trails, cliffs, waterfalls or even hopping on a train and exploring Ireland's beautiful countryside. In particular to my internship, I learned so many valubale skills with regard to non-profit work and how these organizations operate. I gained a feel of what work life could be like for me in the future. It was a valuable experience, because I got a sense of clarity with regards to what I want my future to look like. I got the chance to work alongside a team of passionate co-workers that were very kind, welcoming and willing to include me in all aspects of the organization. I learned so much from the different people I have met throughout my time in Dublin and made lifelong friends that I look forward to seeing in the future. I would recommend anyone interested in an international experience with The Intern Group to go for it! The process was very easy and there was a lot of communication and transparency. Everyone is there to help find you the best placement for what you're looking for. The coordinators try to ensure that you're making the most our of your time. They are a nice support system that you get once you're in the city itself!
