Who Are We???
Our team is comprised of business directors who have international work experience, graduates who have gone through the process of an international internship and parents who have experienced the multiple stages of their ‘young adult’ completing an internship abroad. So we have a full understanding of your worries and expectations.
Your parental concern is a key component to our business.
One of the ways we alleviate your concerns is by making our programmes air tight. All students get a pre departure pack designed to assist their transition into their host country and cultures. They will also go through an orientation as soon as they arrive to further prepare them for their time abroad.
