Why You Should Intern Abroad

Don't just take our word for it. Hear it from our interns themselves!

Benito after watching a soccer game

What an experience!! I was a bit reluctant when I signed up for the London program, but Global Experience made it so easier and simple for me to navigate all the steps. All of this would have not been possible without all the GE coordinators that were here to guide us through the whole journey. 10/10 would recommend this program.
