As a 4th (going to 5th) year student, I have faced several highs and lows throughout university. Before coming to Barcelona, I had worked at two internships, one in Puerto Rico and one in New Jersey. Even though I have this experience, why did I choose to continue on to doing an international internship in Barcelona?
Initially, I really wanted to leave my comfort zone and do an exchange but I wasn't fond of being such a long time studying away from home and I also thought of vacationing here but I wouldn't be ale to live like a local. So doing an international internship was the best of both worlds.
I'm an engineering student and I came here for 10 weeks. Work culture here in general is very different than in PR and the US and it's great to have been able to experience it.
Barcelona is an amazing city with a relaxed feel to it. There's something here for everybody, although a lot of tourists come to Barcelona, living here for the summer immerses you to find opportunities to do things that locals do and see how people live as oppose to what you're normally used to.

Things you must do: Eat tomato bread (ask a local to see if they can teach you how to make it) and olives, visit "Los bunkers de carmel", go to Barceloneta beach, Castelldefels beach, Sitges beach, Shop at local markets (the closest one near me was Mercat Hostafrancs near Sants. La boqueria and Mercat Sant Antoni are some of the larger ones), get bread at bakeries, find festivals (The intern group guide suggests many of them and they are worth it!), museums are great too, and many more things.

My recommendations: Come to Barcelona with an open mind to any problem that comes, there's always a way to communicate and find a solution and you'll get the most enjoyment and learning out of being here. Planning out your weeks will help a lot but have flexibility in case anything pops up last minute.

How can this program be improved?
A more specific explanation of whats included in terms of cultural events and the flat would eliminate any confusion. Several interns have commented to me that they're paying a ton and "nothing is included" (which i believe is not true, they just don't make the most of what they have).
But it would help

This trip has exceeded my expectations! I was worried about getting connected with a group of friends, but I was surrounded by a great group of interns from all over the world almost immediately. The living accommodations are spectacular and I am enjoying my internship and learning lots of new things. Overall, I feel this trip has helped me grow as a person, as well as in my career! I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

(This is a completely honest and unbiased review)

Normally, I wouldn't trust internship agencies/companies prior to my experience with The Intern Group. However post this internship, I have to mention that my experience has been truly memorable and I have been quite impressed with the level of attention and dedication provided by the people responsible for this program. Completely opposite to my apprehensions about whatever was promised to be provided as a part of this package, I can firmly attest to the fact that this organization has surpassed my expectations. Their responsibility doesn't end at the point where they find the internship for you. They value their clients and pay personal attention to the progress and well-being of each of their interns. They are ever ready to assist you in case something goes wrong or unplanned. Under such care, one never feels alone in the city. They take the time to personally attend to each and everyone and make sure that the intern is happy and satisfied with their work life.

I would thank Lalita, Laura, Irene and Béatriz personally for their dedication and efforts towards my overall well-being while I was in Madrid. It truly felt like I was being taken care of by my family! They always understood my needs and encouraged me to move ahead towards my goal. They were quite friendly too and made me feel at ease so I could share every problem of mine with them and seek valuable advice! Even when I fell sick and needed to visit the hospital, I received a lot of support from the team, like negotiating and reducing my work hours for a week till I was fit again.

I have learned a lot about facing challenges in work place and how to overcome them and focus on the objective at hand. As a 19 year old, who is quite new to the professional world, I can confidently say that this was an excellent head-start to integrate internationally and learn a lot about real work life! Surely the best investment I have made until now to gain a ton of experiences for my professional and personal development! Obviously a 10/10 experience!

How can this program be improved?
My only advice would be to continue this excellent service forever! Good luck to the entire team!
(P.S - I don't take photos/videos but rest assured, Madrid is a beautiful place to be in)

If you're considering doing an internship abroad in Australia, this program is great! It was so nice having a place to stay with other interns, included transportation and included experiences for the weekends. I absolutely loved interning in Melbourne and I can't wait to return someday. Thanks to The Intern Group, I learned so much about Australia as well as my field. This internship has given me experience that will prove to be very valuable as I advance in my career. So much fun!

How can this program be improved?
The accommodation would be better if it was moved to a location where it was students and interns only. This would make week nights much more fun and exciting rather than trying to ward off homesickness.

It was great! Got a great musical tour of the city and met so many cool people! Huge shoutout to the Dublin team for being amazing and friendly!
Everyone pointed out the historical landmarks and talked about how Dublin evolved. The walking tour of the city especially was incredible. EPIC Ireland might be the greatest museum in the world. Temple Bar is practically daylight robbery. End of review.
