Understanding the Cost

    In a world flooded with information, it can be hard to decide whom to trust. This is especially true with something as important as your safety and wellbeing while abroad. We want you to feel comfortable and confident with your decision to work with Global Experiences for an internship abroad so we’ve created a breakdown of the tuition costs so you know where your money is going.

    Internship placement, pre-departure training, career development, visa assistance, and language training- Providing the most personalized internship programs means having our staff committed to hours of one-on-one time with all of our participants.

    Housing- We often negotiate contracts with housing 18 months in advance and make deposits for our students to ensure we get the best possible location and quality housing available.

    Location staff, program orientation costs and social activities- We have permanently based staff in every location and when there are large groups of participants we will send more staff from the home office to make sure our interns have plenty of support on the ground.

    Management and organizational costs- Management, marketing, rent, university program development and campus visits, technology, professional services, travel and program development and other costs.

    There are hundreds of intangible benefits that our interns receive during an internship abroad, like gaining soft-skills such as confidence and cultural intelligence, and our program fee cover many tangible costs including:

    Guaranteed Internship:

    We guarantee internships to all participants accepted into the program. We work with each applicant on a one-on-one basis to understand the intern’s expectations and match the intern with the best employer.

    Career Development and Pre-Departure Support:

    Our Program Advisors work with each individual participant to enhance professional documents, set internship goals, and discuss the StrengthsFinder assessment. See the career development page for more details.

    Secure Housing:

    We provide secure housing in all our locations. The type of accommodations range from shared rooms within a student residence to homestays. For specific information about housing in each location check out the location pages.

    On-Site Support:

    In each of our locations we have a Location Coordinator who serves as the intern’s emergency contact and in-country support available to the intern 24/7. The Location Coordinator is in constant communication with our home office and he or she is the face of Global Experiences for that city.

    Social Events and Excursions:

    Our program includes a range of planned social events and excursions hosted by the Location Coordinator to help participant’s foster relationships with each other while exploring some of the beautiful aspects of their host city. For more information about events for each city check out the location pages.

    Language Courses (Internship + Language Locations Only):

    For the locations that are non-English speaking we partner with accredited language schools to offer language courses. During the first part of the program, participants will take part in full immersion style language courses for 20-30 hours a week.
