My favorite part of the program was getting to experience the work culture first hand, while also earning academic credit. It was the perfect way to study abroad, earn credits towards my major, and complete an internship all at once.

My favorite part about doing the internship program in Prague was getting work experience while being immersed in Czech culture.

I enjoyed every single part of this program. I specifically enjoyed spending my time at the work environment where I had the chance to experience new cultures and develop my professional skills.

 

Summer 2017 Participant
My favorite part was being able to experience a variety of cultures. I not only experienced the Czech working culture, but I also got to travel to multiple countries on the weekends and see numerous other cultures as well.

My favorite part of the program to Prague was the vast variety of opportunities given to me during the trip. Not only did the program provide credible work experience, but it also allowed for cultural experiences, that immersed me into the intricacies of Czech Daily Life.

The most rewarding part of this experience was learning that I was able to adapt to the culture of another country and learn how to function in their society. I found a new sense of confidence doing things that I didn't think I would be able to do.

 

Jessica Nicole Cohen, Summer 2017 Participant
I found that studying in a completely different culture and living independently was very rewarding. I made lifelong friendships with students from other universities as well as working professionals in the Czech Republic. Being someone who wants to work internationally someday, this program was very beneficial to me.

I found it most rewarding that my internship was directly applicable to my interests and things I've learned in school.

The internship I did consisted of working with and helping disabled children in Prague. My experience with these children was without a doubt the most rewarding thing. Many of the children could not speak at all and if they did it wasn't English. This put me in a situation I have never been in, but getting to know the kids and my coworkers was extremely rewarding.

 

Summer 2017 Participant
I really appreciated the professional network that I was able to develop by meeting great colleagues at work.

 

Summer 2017 Participant
The last week of my program was the most rewarding. I realized how many new friends I met and will stay in touch with at KU. My internship company also had a going-away party on my last day, and I felt like a had really mad an impact with the work I had done for them.

 

Marcea A Say, Summer 2017 Participant
The fact that I had enough time to travel was amazing. I got to experience so many cultures in the short time I was there because the working schedule was so accommodating.

The most rewarding aspect was working with fellow interns from across the globe. People from the United States and from Europe, coming together and creating meaningful pieces of literature to inform the people of Europe about Water Consumption. Putting in work at the internship was a good for resume building as well as testing the waters for future careers.

 

Lauren R Gould, Summer 2018 Participant
I had a very good internship. The company is well-respected and my coworkers were accommodating and fun. I feel like the skills I developed over the course of the summer are applicable to any work that I would find in the future.

 

Summer 2018 Participant
I found the projects I completed during my internship to be the most rewarding. I developed and implemented a membership platform for Transitions Online Magazine, and learned a lot from that.

I would recommend that all students do their homework on their host country before going abroad.

 

Summer 2017 Participant
I gained professional skills, cultural experience, and professional network. I will 100% recommend other students to participate in the program because they will gain so much more than they have expected!

 

Summer 2017 Participant
The biggest thing I learned was adjusting to a new culture and becoming more independent. Simply by traveling so much I expected to gain more independence, but I was surprised how much I learned even from small, weekly tasks (figuring out the transportation system, going to Czech grocery stores, having to make meals every day, etc.). It taught me how to live on my own and become more independent.

At first I was very intimidated, I knew I wanted to study abroad, but I didnt know where to start or where to go. I ended up walking into the Office of Study Abroad one day, and was helped by the compassionate and helpful staff into looking at programs that could be constructive to my major. After a few searches and a few meetings around campus, I knew that taking an internship would not only satisfy my educational requirement but that Prague would be the best way to explore Europe as a whole.
