Great internship

I did a 6 month long internship via AIP to South Korea and it was amazing! I got to learn a lot via my internship company, i couldn’t have found it without AIP. Their support throughout my whole stay was also good, they checked up on me a lot and made sure i was doing okay. It was a good experience and i am very grateful! It is a lot of work and hard work but i would go again and experience this great internship again!

Ik heb een stage van 6 maanden via AIP naar Zuid-Korea gedaan en het was geweldig! Ik heb veel mogen leren via mijn stagebedrijf, zonder AIP had ik het niet gevonden. Hun steun tijdens mijn hele verblijf was ook goed, ze controleerden me veel en zorgden ervoor dat het goed met me ging. Het was een goede ervaring en ik ben erg dankbaar! Het is veel werk en hard werken, maar ik zou opnieuw gaan en deze geweldige stage opnieuw ervaren!

Amazing Seoul Experience

Considering that I was travelling alone for the first time, it was a huge relief to have AIP guide me all throughout the process. They made sure that I am connected to other interns and met them in person. This entire internship experience gave me the opportunity to not only get outside my comfort zone, but also to introduce myself to another culture, learn about what I am passionate about, and prepare myself for my future career. My host company was very accommodating and I will surely miss my Korean friends.

Social Media Marketing Intern @ AIP

Did a 3M Internship with AIP to Seoul, South Korea - and I loved every minute of my journey here. I made many new friends, explored many places from Nami Island to Busan, and gained valuable professional work experiences.

The process with AIP was very easy and smooth as they provide you with so much information. Special thanks to Nisha and Herlyn for helping me settle in Seoul, it is my first time in Korea so they eased my worries a lot. Overall, they're very communicative, friendly and supportive - I definitely recommend using AIP service :)

  • Opportunities for travel out of work
  • Affordable and cheap food
  • Safety
  • Would of loved free lunches as compensation @ work
  • Monsoon season

If you’re a tech geek like me then look no further than South Korea!

If you’re a massive tech geek like myself then you have to visit one of the most technologically advanced places in the world, South Korea. When I arrived in Seoul, it was like I was in some tech geek’s paradise. It’s like Disneyland but imagine a whole city of it.

I did a 3 month internship at this great IT startup company right in the heart of the city and it was brilliant! There is a great saying that if you find a job you enjoy doing, you never have to work a day in your life and that resonated with me throughout my internship experience. I was in paradise and honestly wish it didn’t end!

In my free time I also managed to explore different places in South Korea and the country absolutely fascinated me. Just this whole experience really made me want to actively pursue a career in IT hopefully in South Korea too!

I want to thank my supervisor for giving me valuable insights and skills throughout my duration. I couldn’t have asked for someone better! I also want to thank my colleagues for being extremely kind and friendly. Best colleagues I could have asked for and lastly a special shoutout to AIP for making my trip in South Korea a memorable one!

A lifelong dream finally completed!

I am absolutely obsessed with South Korea. From binge-watching K-drama to listening to K-pop and Korean being my favourite cuisine, you can only imagine how excited I was by being able to intern in South Korea!

I was so excited that I barely slept on my long-haul flight to Seoul. When I got there my jaw dropped. It felt like I was dreaming as it took me so long to realize that I was actually in South Korea, the place that’s been on top of my bucket list forever!

Heads up guys, if you think Korean food is good in your country, be prepared to be blown away! If you’re coming here on a diet, then forget about it cause Korean food is absolutely fantastic!

I did my internship at a great marketing company in the heart of Seoul and it was fabulous! I had wonderful colleagues as well with who I’ve become really good friends. My office wasn’t even far from my accommodation so if I had to burn the previous night’s dinner and the weather was good I would sometimes walk to work!

I’ve had a truly wonderful time in South Korea and I was absolutely gutted to leave after 6 beautiful months. Thank you, AIP for making my dreams come true of finally being able to go to South Korea. Special shoutout to my work colleagues and I can’t wait to come back in the near future!

Take me back to summer 2021!

I don’t even know where to begin. I did an internship with AIP in South Korea and this is going to sound cliche but it was such a life changing experience!

It all started when a friend of mine told me about this internship they did in South Korea the previous summer. She did an internship in Seoul for 4 months and told me all about her experience. We both study business development and she told me that she learned so much during her 4 months. She said that the experience could be used for university credits as well (which is something that is required for our course).

So I did some more research and decided to apply. I landed an interview and the staff were really friendly. I wasn’t sure yet about what I wanted to do but they gave me multiple options as well.

The whole application process went extremely well and before I knew it I was already in South Korea.

When I got to South Korea I was amazed by everything, like I was blown away. I had seen lots of videos on South Korea and this definitely met my expectations.

I did an internship at a journalism company and loved every minute of it. From writing lifestyle articles to travel articles, this experience really allowed me to immerse myself in the local culture. My supervisor was super friendly and helpful and gave me valuable advice that I can take with me.

My accommodation in South Korea was great as well. It was only a 15 min ride from my apartment. Had convenience stores and everything I needed nearby like what more could I ask for. The only problem though is that I did have a few issues with my room such as the ac not working properly but they were so quick with fixing it.

I also met people from all over the world and this is one of the reasons that made this experience so great. It truly was a global experience and I can happily say that I’ve made friends from all over the globe.

I am so grateful for this experience and it’s one I will cherish forever. I met so many great people, really built my professional network and am grateful for the help I received by AIP. Can definitely recommend this experience to anyone. Please take me back to summer 2021!

Make Internships Great Again!

I recently did an internship for 3 months in South Korea and it was my first time going to Asia. I was a little nervous at first but AIP made the journey super comfortable for my parents and I.

Arriving in a country and culture that was different to my own was very hard at first but luckily I managed to meet other fellow interns during my time there and I can say I made some lifelong friends. The 24/7 emergency assistance by AIP also really helped me settle in well in Korea.

My internship was in IT and at first I was a little worried as I was the only foreigner at the company. In the end I had nothing to worry about because everyone at my company was so lovely and this experience gave me that valuable hands-on experience I was looking for.

I would say one thing I wished for more to occur would be the social gatherings. It would have been nice to have met more interns during my time there or at least have more activities that we could do together.

In the end, I truly had a wonderful time and I am so grateful for the people I've met, my host company and of course AIP! Thank you all for making internships great again!

Summer in Korea is the best summer

I did an internship for 4 months in South Korea and it was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Not only did I get to experience a country I’ve always been fascinated by but the whole experience is everything I hoped for.

I managed to work at this great company that focuses on UI/UX and was super happy with the hands-on experience I received. My supervisor was extremely helpful and I’ve learned a lot from my colleagues.

The only drawback was my accommodation as it was a little far from the office and especially after work, it often did take a while to reach my apartment. Despite the little drawback I cannot complain that much and want to thank AIP and my host company for this great opportunity. I cannot wait to go to South Korea again!
