What Our Alumni Have To Say

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.

With GE there were only positives and 100 percent I would recommend this program to anyone and everyone who wants to have a truly amazing experience.

Julia loving her internship in Sydney

I had the most amazing experience in Sydney through Global Experiences. I worked on unique projects and had extraordinary responsibilities during my internship that definitely helped me grow and develop and gain a sense of what it is like to be a part of the working world rather than just a student in school.

Milan is a beautiful place to live, explore, and cherish, but what makes it an even better experience is attending the program through Global Experiences. Join this program and have the time of your life in Milan. It will grow you, work you, and open up your eyes to all the amazing possibilities that lie ahead. I promise you won't regret a single bit.

I only have a few days left with my internship here in Florence, Italy, and I could not be more proud and surprised at what I have been able to accomplish in just 8 weeks. This internship has really pushed me past my comfort zone in the best way possible. And if you are thinking about interning abroad, do it! Just try! It has been one of my best decisions I've made ever!
