What recent interns said about their experience

My internship managed to blow any expectation I had out of the water by offering me experiences I wouldn't have been able to get otherwise. It wasn't just getting to meet the artists and sculptures, but being made to feel like part of a community that really astonished me. I enjoyed being exposed to people, places, and experiences I never would have been able to as a tourist or visitor alone. The experience during the internship was inspiring as an artist and a student, and has left me feeling reinvigorated about my professional plans. I've made connections in the internship that I'll hold dear to me for life, and that's made me a better thinker and a better person overall. My favorite aspect of the internship was that my only focus while I was there was on creating art. From waking up in the morning to sleeping at night, my only concern was to think creatively, which was incredibly liberating.

Having lived in the United States my entire life and completed my undergraduate degree there as well, one of my favourite parts of this internship was getting to learn about psychology and mental health care through a different cultural lens. While I went into my placement with an open mind, I was surprised by just how many new perspectives I gained on topics I had always assumed were straightforward. Working alongside other international interns and learning about their own unique backgrounds and knowledge of psychology only added to this experience even more. Working directly with patients and getting to build a rapport with them in the four weeks I was in Greece really strengthened my confidence to transition from academia into work that is more hands-on and personal as I continue to pursue a career in clinical psychology.

During my internship in Greece, I was a psychology intern at a day center. At the day center, I was in charge of creating and leading group activities and got to observe and record patient behavior. I chose this program because I love to travel and wanted to increase my knowledge of other cultures. My experience has not only taught me the value of being immersed in different cultures, but it has taught me more about the concepts of psychology and how to apply what I have learned in my university classes to real-life situations. I gained a ton of experience in the psychology field and found out that this is truly the career path I love, am good at, and want to follow.

This program has given me the opportunity to develop the skills necessary in order to prepare for the real world in my career field. What I enjoyed most about this is the chance to partake in various groups to get a better understanding of the different aspects and career field paths available to me in the near future. This has made a huge contribution to my personal and professional development by allowing me to freely think and actively view how life will become for me once I officially join many other skilled and intelligent scientists in the marine science field.

My internship role has definitely contributed to my long-term career goals. As someone who is extremely passionate about history, learning about and creating pieces of art using traditional techniques has been absolutely incredible. I got the chance to explore a number of museums in Athens and really enjoyed viewing the ceramic, mosaic and marble artefacts, not only as a historian, but also as someone who has had the opportunity to employ similar techniques and create pieces with the same materials. I hope to work in museums in the future, and can definitely employ the knowledge I have gained from this internship when studying such important artefacts. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to experience and understand Greek culture. All the people I met were lovely and welcoming, and I was made to feel very at home!

Having completed my internship, I feel more empowered knowing I can meet new people and engage in new scenarios. Initially I thought I would be doing more shadowing, whereas in reality I had a much more practical and interactive role. The main skill that I will carry over into my future career is being able to engage with individuals no matter our differences, and despite challenges such as language, culture and different perspectives or opinions. I aim to pursue a career in the psychological domain, hence I feel this skill will be especially beneficial but it is also applicable to a plethora of other domains of career or life.
