My lecturer told me that I would be able to do my internship abroad and I already knew it: I wanted to go to Asia. I wanted to live in Asia for a few months, because this culture is so different from my own and I wanted to experience that myself.
But since it is very difficult to find an internship in the field of architecture, and even harder to find one abroad, I needed a mediator. After spending some hours on Google, I decided to choose for Asia Internship Program. My main reason for choosing this company is that they provide customized internships in many countries in Asia. It was hard for me to choose one specific country, but I decided to choose Indonesia because I like the sea and I’m only on a small budget. I don’t have any regrets.
I liked my time there. It was very nice to explore the different islands of Indonesia in my free time, the food was delicious and all people were very kind to me as a foreigner. AIP found me a great company with a funny personal supervisor who trained, monitored and guided me throughout my internship. This supervisor had been working in architecture for 10 years so he was very experienced and his English was incredible for an Indonesian person.
If someone asks me if I would recommend AIP for finding you an internship, I won’t hesitate to give them a big ‘YES’. They helped me at all times, from arranging my visa, to finding accommodation, to giving me assistance 24/7. Many thanks to them for giving me the best
period abroad in my life!
