World Internships Reviews
Great experience, sub-par company
Submitted by KD - Kansas State University | August 18, 2017
I absolutely loved my experience, but some things didn't happen that should have. The person who was supposed to pick me up from the airport and give me orientation wasn't there when I arrived so I had to take a taxi from the airport. I didn't get any help from the company for the first week and then they set me up with a different company for orientation. I had no roommates even though I requested one. World Internships doesn't rate very high in my book, but you should still do it. It was an amazing experience. I wouldn't change a thing.

I interned on the Galapagos islands and the Amazon Rainforest for 12 weeks. It was such an incredible and life-changing experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I worked at a biological station and an animal rehabilitation center, which was perfect to give me a well-rounded experience.

My overall experience was great. I loved my internship, my coworkers were amazing. I fit right in right away. I loved my roommates, none were from the United States and I learned so much about other countries and cultures. My only issue was with the accommodation company itself. World internships from accommodations with management companies, and the company was not very willing to assist with issues, and has horrible customer service. During my last week, they told my roommates and I to shut up on the phone then hung up. They were not willing to fix the washing machine that was broken for over a week, so I was forced to get World Internships involved to resolve the issue. However once I contacted the director, I received immediate response from WI and the management company was over that night to fix it. So World Internships is great for support during my entire experience. I rarely had problems but they ensured they were fix as soon as I did. This company made it so easy to come abroad, making my dream become a reality.
Internship with turtles

It was an overall amazing experience. Something I wouldn't change for the world. Even though the internship ended abruptly due to lack of organization & communication with the team on site, it was a dream come true. It showed me how I can truly make a difference in the world by having sea turtles as coworkers! Having hands on opportunities was an advantage I'll have for the rest of my life. Going into the internship I was a little nervous knowing that I would have to do it in Spanish, however my Spanish quickly improved which will also give me the upper hand. I now can say my first internship in my field was in a different country, done in a different language, and had hands on experience you can't get anywhere else but there.

I really enjoyed my time here and although I was a little nervous about coming over I couldn't be more pleased with my experience here. This experience has exceeded anything I thought it would be like.
