Global Education and Career Development Abroad Reviews
GlobalEd - the good and bad
Submitted by Ole Naess - Hawaii Pacific University | January 17, 2018
From day 1 I found GlobalEd to be a very professional program where the representatives were very helpful and answered all of my questions within a reasonable time period. The pre-departure process was very neat, and I always had a full overview of the status, what I needed to complete, and what GlobalEd was working on for me.
When first arriving in Spain, I was introduced to the on-site team, which I found as a positive thing. This because I got to put a face to the name for the whole team.
Activities were great throughout the semester, and I especially loved all the guided trips we had with Alejandro.
When it came to my housing situation, I was very pleased with my roommates. The only thing I found troubling was the safety in the apartment. No sign of any fire extinguisher, fire alarms or similar safety equipment. Now, I have learned that this is not normal in such apartments in Spain, but I feel that this should be dealt with and covered by GlobalEd in terms of making sure the "American safety standard" is also held in Spain. If anything happens to any study abroad student in the housing that could have been prevented by something as simple as a fire extinguisher or fire alarm, I am sure GlobalEd wished they had invested in this for the landlord.
I was not pleased with my experience with EUSA. EUSA bragged about how professional they were at our orientation meeting, but nothing of this reflected throughout the semester.
No set syllabus before the semester started, the teachers did not grade the different assignments until months after the due dates. In one class the teacher left after 1 class, and a sub came in for the whole semester who had never taught the course. That course was just a mess the whole semester. The other GlobalEd student and I were definitely not pleased with the EUSA situation, and Nicole also knows about some of our issues. I would definitely recommend students to complete courses at the University of Sevilla instead of EUSA.
My 2-week language school at Clic was very good. I found Clic to be a professional school with a high level of knowledge to what they were doing. I would definitely recommend students to complete a language course here before starting the semester.
My internship at GlampingHub was an interesting ride. Since I was only there for 2 days per week, my supervisor had some difficulties with keeping me busy. GlampingHub got interns working there every day, so I felt I fell short of them, cause they always had stuff to do, while I found myself constantly asking my supervisor for things to do. A great place to work with a lot of great people, but they could definitely have gotten more out of me as an intern with a little more planning to it.
My overall experience with GlobalEd is that they have a great team of people, and it is very organised. If I ever had a question, I would always get an answer, so there is great growth potential for GlobalEd.

GlobalEd did a phenomenal job at facilitating my abroad experience in every possible way. To develop me professionally, they placed me at an internship that allowed me to practice the technical skills I had learned in school and learn how to use Spanish in the workplace. They also helped me articulate my experience through a resume and interview to help me find employment after graduation. From a cultural perspective, they introduced us to the culture of Sevilla and other Spanish cities and educated us on the culture. To do this, we had excursions every other week to cities such as Granada, Cadiz, and Cordoba. The cultural education helped me appreciate my time in Spain so much more. Socially, they allowed us the free time to explore Spain and soak up the experience. After my time abroad with GlobalEd, I have grown both professional, culturally, and as a whole person.
Amazing internship & interesting classes in Seville, Spain
Submitted by Deanna - Hawai'i Pacific University | August 14, 2015
I loved being a part of GlobalEd because it was very personal - Steven & Rosa, the company founders, were basically like my second set of parents and really cared about my experience in Spain. They helped place me in a very interesting internship at a flamenco museum in Seville where I was able to interact with lots of international tourists on a daily basis, improve my Spanish dramatically, make friends with my coworkers who were from all over the world, and also learn about a part of Spanish culture I didn't know much about before: the beautiful art of flamenco. My classes at the University of Seville were also very interesting because they were classes I would normally never be able to take in the USA.
A study abroad unlike any other!
Submitted by Silvia R. - Southern Methodist University | August 13, 2015
Ever since I could remember, I have always had an interest in living abroad. So, as soon as I got to college, I practically jumped at the opportunity to participate in one of my university's study abroad programs. Today, I look back on my summer studying and interning in Seville as one of the best of my life!
And yet, after returning home and hearing all about other friends' study abroad experiences, I am confident that GlobalEd's Summer Internship and Spanish Language Program is a study abroad unlike any other!
Beyond finding me an internship that matched my professional goals and interests, the GlobalEd staff did everything they could (and MORE) to prepare me for my international internship. Although I never experienced any issues, I always felt extremely supported and welcomed by the GlobalEd director, Steven, and his amazing staff. My home-stay was also especially welcoming, so much so that I remain in contact with my señora today!
Honestly, I can't thank GlobalEd enough for the time and effort they put into my study abroad experience and recommend them to anyone looking to get the most out of studying abroad. Thanks to this program, Seville is now one of my favorite places in the world!
Internship in Seville, Spain
Submitted by LanaUSA - Honolulu | February 09, 2015
First, I would like to thank the GlobalEd people for the great program they provide to students and for its unquestionable commitment. When I signed up for GlobalEd internship, I was bit nervous. It turned out I worried too much! The GlobalEd people did everything to make my stay in Seville as enjoyable as it could be. Steven and Rosa were always there when you needed them. Steven even picked me up at the airport and had a bag of goodies for me! Both of them are very intelligent and caring people and I miss having coffee and tapas with them!
I ended up doing my internship at a local tour company where I gained some marketing and website development skills. I even was able to join the company’s weekend excursions to Portugal and Morocco! I gained some professional skills, improved my Spanish, and had some fun!
The place I chose to live in was a four bedroom Spanish style apartment that was in walking distance from my job. My roommates were great and they helped me with my Spanish. My friend that I met in Seville chose to live with his host family that cooked nice Spanish meals for him - he loved it!
Books can’t teach you things you can learn living in a different culture! You should do it while you have an opportunity. Seville is my favorite city in Spain and certainly is the one I recommend to experience. I definitely recommend GlobalEd as I don’t think any other company out there would care for you as much as GlobalEd does!
