An international internship can be a priceless experience; you will learn about yourself, get valuable career experience, and get to travel the world, but not all programs are created equal. We want you to see what sets Global Experiences apart from every other provider and the value that we bring. At GE we try to be as transparent about costs and inclusions as possible. We want you to feel comfortable and confident with your decision to work with Global Experiences and look forward to providing you with a life-changing experience.
