Q1. How does the experience of an international internship enrich life?

- Personally: it makes you more open-minded by discovering a new culture in relation to food, clothing, beliefs and traditions. You will come back being more autonomous and this will help you adapt yourself better to new situations. You will make new friends and, of course, you will learn a new language.
Q2. What would you recommend to someone who is just about to start an internship?
It’s a good idea to take advantage of the possibility of achieving a significant practical experience in your sector and acquiring new competences. Share time with your colleagues, as they will give you tips and tell you about their own experiences. Internships are a unique opportunity to create new contacts and develop professional opportunities.
