Amazing Experience

I had such an amazing experience interning abroad. The internship was specifically geared to my interests and professional goals. I was able to work on interesting projects and was able to see them start to finish. My colleagues were great to work with. I got to explore most of Ireland and learned more about their country and myself through the journey. I stayed with a host family, which was a unique and enjoyable experience. I was able to be immersed in Irish culture and the town where I was living. I would definitely recommend interning through Learn International, the staff are supportive and friendly. They provide affordable study abroad programs that allow more students the possibility to study abroad. It was a valuable learning experience for me. It's a once in the lifetime experience!

My Summer Abroad

Overall, my summer in Dublin was incredible! I met new people, had so many new experiences, and loved my time in the country of Ireland. Arriving was a little shaky, no one told me there were students I would be meeting who were not doing an internship. Us interns ended up staying in the dorms for a night with the students. More communication, as well as more details, would have been great.
My internship was with Premier Publishing. I loved my internship. It was really what you made of it, and how much you were willing to participate in the office. I ended up staying in my first assignment for the whole 8 weeks because everything was going so well.
My host family was great. They took care of me and made sure I was doing ok with everything. They took me on a few days and overnight trips around the country, and always encouraged me to go adventure.
I met some cool people thru the program, but also just going out on my own. I would suggest this internship and experience to anyone who is hands on about their success and are willing to be proactive in everything that comes with the program. Best of luck!

How can this program be improved?
There needs to be more communication between participants and staff before they arrive. A walkthru of the whole 8 weeks including day trips with the program and everything should be included as well.

Global Internship Ireland

This summer, I interned through Learn International at an engineering consulting firm in Cork City, Ireland and I could not be happier with my experience! The Learn International staff were very supportive and quick to answer questions from months before my departure to my arrival in country, and even after I returned home. My host family was kind and welcoming. They provided sound advice on anything from local bus routes to the best travel destinations. The work I did was interesting and the engineers were friendly and did not look down on me when I had questions. In addition, I learned many new skills that will help me in my professional life. But my favorite part of the program was my weekend travels. Seeing so many wonderful places and experiencing a culture I have always admired firsthand is something I will never forget! This experience has changed me for the better and I am forever grateful!

How can this program be improved?
From time to time the workload at my company was sparse. I realize this is more of a responsibility for the placement companies, but if Learn International could possibly do more to ensure that companies have sufficient work for students during the full duration of the placement that would be great.

Summer internship

I recently completed an internship in Ireland for 8 weeks thanks to the help of Learn International. I was not only getting the amazing opportunity to travel but I was also able to meet amazing people and learn the skills of working with those from other countries than myself. The faculty were fantastic in helping me with finding a safe homestay, meeting me once in awhile for lunch to check in, and even helping me meet friends! I loved my host family and even made friends that will last a lifetime both from Ireland and elsewhere. I 100% recommend working with Learn International because they will do everything they can to make sure you have what you need and help you make amazing memories!

How can this program be improved?
They could provide an orientation with other interns because it was solely me at my orientation.

"Remember when we were in Ireland?"

My visit to Ireland completely exceeded my expectations. I have to be honest, initially I wasn't too heavily excited to go as I imagined I needed to be an outdoor person to enjoy the country! I was definitely wrong. Ireland is a place where I want to be outdoors as much as possible. The imagery is so captivating and its visuals vary across the land. The landscapes are very alluring and simple to hike around. With the help of Learn International my visit to Dublin could not have been better. They assisted me immediately with any concern I had and were eager to hear about all of my experiences anytime I did something new. I shared many stories about my internship and how great my colleagues were. My internship allowed me to travel to different wedding destinations and see the historic venues Ireland had to offer. My advisor from Learn International was very personal with the way she assisted and interacted with me. I truly feel I had a friend by my side in times of need or just for lunch! Speaking of food, Ireland wasn't short amazing places to eat and enjoy night life. I'll never forget the evenings I spent watching performers dancing in pubs, streets and restaurants just to entertain us! The way the performers interacted with one another and the crowd really made for a genuine and friendly vibe in Ireland. I think about the six weeks I spent in Ireland almost everyday. It has changed the aspirations I have in life and made my desires more meaningful. It is remarkable how big of an impact this country and program has had on me. I would not change it for a thing. One of my childhood best friends visited Ireland this summer as well. She had just been traveling around but I visited with her quite a bit. We share the same memories and experiences. Almost every conversation we have involves reminiscing about our unforgettable journey in Ireland.

How can this program be improved?
I think this program is doing great at expanding its opportunities to more people and outreach. Perhaps more activities to bring participants in the program together once they are in the country would be a great aspect of the program services.
