"Making sure I got the experience and exposure of going abroad as an undergraduate at +Rhodes College was imperative. Thanks to the generous programs and benefits provided by both my school and Connect-123, I was able to find a way to combine travel with experiential work and service learning in the form of an internship abroad!
I believe internships are a gateway to the future for students getting ready to transition from college to the workplace. Getting real, hands-on work experience can prove life-changing. For me, I got a real chance to have my perspectives changed, skillsets diversified, and beliefs tested outside the classroom.
Interning abroad for the entire summer proved to be the best route for me. Not only did I have the opportunity to fully immerse myself in the culture, history, and work I was doing in Cape Town, but I didn’t feel the pressure of having a class load to deal with on top of my experience." - Alex, internship in Cape Town.

Li Yiang is studying pharmacology at +Bristol University. He recently wrapped up his internship in Dublin, Ireland, where he worked in an immunology lab at a local hospital.
He says: "Thanks to my internship, I gained knowledge of many crucial laboratory skills, such as preparing coverslips and writing audits. I learned how to operate centrifuge, Phadia 250 and QuantaLyser. My work colleagues were welcoming and patient. Connect-123 not only made sure that we worked in a safe and professional environment but also filled our free time with exciting adventures and good food!" 😃🍀😃

"Running the company’s social media platforms and blog section has shown me how marketing and public relations is executed internally. I met some of the most amazing individuals at my internship who have become some of my closest friends. I wouldn’t have traded my internship experience for anything. And if I could go back and relive this again, I would in a heartbeat!" - Meaghan, Marketing Intern, Barcelona

"To anyone considering the Connect-123 program, particularly in Buenos Aires: Do It! It’s one thing to study abroad, but to actually live and work abroad takes the study abroad experience to a new level. Connect-123 provides a fun, informative, and memorable experience that nobody regrets." - Casey, sports management internship, Buenos Aires.

What a superb day out with our fabulous Connectors in Cape Town! We spent the day exploring Langa, one of South Africa's oldest townships. After a street art and graffiti walking tour through the neighborhood, Connectors headed to Guga S’Thebe Arts & Cultural Centre and learned how to play traditional Djembe drums 😃 Then it was time for lunch, a "lekker" BBQ, or "braai", or "shisanyama"!
Cultural activities and social outings like these are very much a part of the Connect-123 Cape Town program. To find out more about what's included in our programs in Cape Town, please visit our website.

"During my internship in Buenos Aires, I found great places to frequent that fall within my budget and aren’t the sorts of things you read about in a guidebook. This is a compilation of those places – from the best spots to buy food and enjoy the outdoors, to a few fun (and affordable) day trip adventures that will get you out of the heart of the city." - Heather

Joy, a +carletoncollege student, spent eight weeks in China, completing her medical internship in Shanghai.
"During the eight weeks I spent in China doing my medical internship in Shanghai, I formed amazing relationships with the doctors, staff, and other hospital interns, as well as with my fellow Connect-123 peers. Every day was like waking up to a new adventure! I’ve learned so much about myself while living and working abroad. I am grateful for the amazing opportunity I received to explore such a beautiful city and create lifelong memories. My internship experience in Shanghai is one I will never forget!" #internabroad #connect123 #goabroad https://tinyurl.com/ybjc24oj
