Explore new ways of thinking and living that deepen your knowledge and understanding of different cultures as well as international, political, and economic issues. Experiencing an entirely new culture is at the heart of an EPA Internship. There will be an orientation program when you arrive, and an EPA Program Director will be on hand to see you settled in and help you get the maximum out of your stay.
You’re likely to be living in an apartment with other students or with a local family, perhaps commuting to work on public transport. In some cities there are other forms of accommodation available. If you’re in a country where English is not the native language, you may be offered an intensive language instruction with special emphasis on verbal skills. The idea is to get you immersed in local life as soon as possible!
Above all, it’s up to you — the more willing you are to talk to people, join in and experience what the culture has to offer, the more enjoyment you will get out of it.
