* Overall educational experience
Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.
I recently completed a 8 week internship in Madrid, Spain, and it was quite the memorable experience! From drop off to orientation, the Intern Group made sure I was well informed and felt at home.
My company was very welcoming and the work made use of the design project skills I gained in the previous semester (at university), so it was quite nice immediately putting that knowledge to good use. Madrid is also a magnificent city with lots to see and much to explore.
It was a pity I came on the cusp of August, which is the general holiday month in Europe. As a result, there were not many interns and my flat was quite empty. Regardless, I was still able to have a good time by meeting people from around and it was quite fun exploring by myself too.
Overall, I am quite happy with my experience and dearly miss my time spent in Madrid. The internship was quite helpful in making me realise what I really wanted to do in the future (i.e. which direction to take in my field) and needless to say, it´d look quite good on my CV too.
