Seoul Internship

During my internship in Seoul, I learned so much and had such a wonderful time. I was able to meet a lot of interesting people in my industry who I never would have had the chance to meet otherwise, so the networking chances were fantastic. The friendships I developed with the other interns were the icing on the cake, and it was an amazing experience getting to know so many people from different countries. The coordinators are really kind and helpful, and also fun! The weekly events organised for us were fantastic, and they made the whole experience that much more enjoyable and educational. The office environment was not only friendly, but also entertaining and very generous. This was my first trip to South Korea, so I wanted to make sure I could enter and stay in the country without any problems as I don't even speak the language. Beyond Academy ensured that I could do all of that prepared to answer any question I had. My internship was the best possible experience!

Seoul internship

I had a great time exploring Seoul, especially with the help of Sooyeon, the local community advisor. She was very helpful when I encountered an emergency in Seoul. When it comes to group events and activities, she is always there to remind me and other interns of upcoming events so we don’t miss them. Other than that, the company I interned for was fun, but I don’t think it challenged me enough for my personal development. Overall, I had a great experience in Seoul and it is definitely a must for anyone looking to explore East Asian culture.

Legal Internship in Seoul with Beyond Academy!!

The Seoul program made my first internship experience convenient, exciting and led me to meet some wonderful people. Coming to a foreign country for an internship is a daunting task, but with the help of everyone in Beyond Academy, especially the on-site coordinators, it was an easy transition into a new culture and city! The amount of passion the on-site coordinators have and the time they take to make sure every intern really experiences Seoul, is amazing to me. I wish I could have stayed longer!

  • Concerts
  • Amazing Food!!

The program and the supervisors were professionally assisting me from the very start of the application to the end when I was leaving Seoul. My internship was amazing as it was exactly the right atmosphere I hoped for. I did not only work in a creative environment learning stuff but also explored Seoul and had a lot of fun both working and exploring/partying in Seoul. I met many interesting people not only from my job but also meeting and talking to other interns in different fields was very insightful.

  • Finding a job
  • Getting to know the city
  • Friendly environment
  • Sometimes stressful to combine work and social life

Great Experience!

My experience with Beyond Academy, specifically Seoul, has been absolutely amazing. Not only are the on-site coordinators friendly and supportive but they are extremely accommodating and go above and beyond to make sure your time there is meaningful. I was able to find a great internship opportunity and the Beyond community made the transition into a professional environment very seamless and a lot less daunting than I imagined. Additionally, there is just the perfect amount of cultural experiences that are organized by the Beyond team that allow you to enjoy the city.

  • Amazing support by on-site coordinators
  • Great way to meet other interns and connect with professionals
  • You get to experience cultural activities while engaging in a meaningful internship experience

Internship in Seoul

I have been in Seoul for 2.5 weeks and it has been amazing. I have learned so much in my field of industry in terms of academics and culture which I never would have experienced before. I’ve gained ultimate independence which has helped me reflect on my character and personality. I have also met some really friendly, helpful and open minded people that I truly consider friends. Beyond Academy gives you the freedom to design your internship the way you want and prioritises your needs which is why it is suited for everyone!

An Amazing Experience

This is a great way to develop your resume while exploring a new place. I really enjoyed my experience with this program. They did a great job finding me an internship that suited my interests. The accommodation they found for me was a nice place with a short commute to the company I was placed with. They hosted weekly events where you could get to know other interns and explore the city. They provided lots of information about each part of the process and were very helpful whenever I had questions.

  • Great and easy way to find an internship abroad
  • Fun events to meet people from different places
  • Lots of resources provided with the program
  • A bit on the pricey side
