“I wanted to do an international internship to boost my CV and The Intern Group tailored the programme to suit me. I was consulted fully during the placement process and given several options when deciding which firm to intern with. It has been a fantastic experience and future participants will take out of it as much as they put in.” - Louisa Baczor, Exeter University

“The people are very friendly and always ready to help you out, it is very important to get to know a new culture and to gain the experiences I have; they are experiences I will cherish for the rest of my career. Future participants should embrace the new culture and way of life and to forget about any preconceptions as it is so much better than you can imagine.” - Jonathan Munday, University of York

“It has been one of the greatest experiences of my life; the time I have spent down here has led to me meeting fantastic people from all over the world through The Intern Group’s large international community of interns. It is a fantastic opportunity and I urge anyone given the same chance to grab it with both hands.” - Adrian Matthews, Muskingham University
