Every participant that makes it through the competitive selection process works one-on-one with our experienced advising team as they are guided through our award winning career development and prepare for their interview with a customized internship placement matched to their career goals and personal strengths. Our team of advisors have all traveled and lived abroad and are great mentors through the pre-departure process. Global Experiences assists its participants through the visa process, maintaining close ties with necessary agencies and embassies globally. Our interns from the United States and several other countries are required to travel on the BUNAC Tier 5 visa, while Australia and Canadian Interns travel on a Youth Mobility Working Holiday Visa. Each visa type has its own costs associated.
Once on the ground, interns will join a select program that provides just the right amount of group and individual support through cultural and social programming, networking opportunities, and career development. Our location-based staff live permanently in the city and provide an insider-level connection to the culture, events, what’s hot and what’s not, as well as 24/7 emergency support. During the summer, we have Resident Assistants that join us from our large alumni community and provide mentoring and pastoral care throughout the program.
