Testimonials

Zoe Antoniou

Deakin University
Deakin University, Victoria, Australia

Zoe studied BA (Hons) Film, TV and Digital Media Production and spent one term studying abroad at Deakin University, in Victoria, Australia.

'I'd always wanted to go to Australia and so just being there was something amazing in itself. Growing up in and around London (or a big city) definitely gave me an edge. Walking around Melbourne was just a warmer London or New York, either that or I was just destined to live in Australia.'

'I gained a lot of leadership skills, from already living a vaguely separate life from my family at home, being on the opposite side of the world didn't feel any different. I realised that for my roommates and international friends, this was their first time being away from their families so I taught a fair few people how to cook and just cope with living by themselves. Essentially, within the first month I had become a mother to my entire floor.' 

'It was the best experience I've had in my life and I'll be forever grateful to Regent’s for allowing me to have that opportunity. I made some really close and life-long friends.'

Gabriela Ilizarova

Gabriela studied BA International Business with French and Finance and spent two terms studying abroad at Dauphine University in Paris, France.

'I got lucky with my professors who were very passionate about their fields and professionals in terms of providing the lectures and assessments.'

'A study period abroad is definitely not only about studies. It's also about exploring the city and squeezing the most out of it. Paris is one of the richest cities when it comes to cultural heritage and gastronomy. Do not miss the opportunity of leaving your house to amaze your eyes and taste buds!'

'My study period was a great experience which has allowed me to expand my knowledge, overcome numerous obstacles and find a new comfort zone.'

Virtual internship opportunities with Pagoda Projects

Regent’s has teamed up with Pagoda Projects to offer a variety of virtual summer internships at companies from a broad range of sectors across many countries. 

With a proven track record of delivering quality work experience, signing up for a Pagoda Projects’ virtual internship over the summer is a great way to remain fully engaged in your development during this unusual time, and to benefit from exposure to different cultures’ approach to business.

Each remote internship is a full-time position, Monday-Friday each week for the duration of the programme (although the exact number of working hours each week will differ slightly between the different host companies) and options include:

  • Option 1: 4 Week Programme
    Monday 13 July – 7 August
  • Option 2: 8 Week Programme
    Monday 13 July – 4 September
  • Option 3: 12 Week Programme
    Monday 13 July – 2 October

There are over 100 different companies to choose from, meaning you could become a Graphic Designer in Ho Chi Min City, a Business Development and Marketing Intern in Taipei, a Business Analyst in Mexico City or an Environmental Psychologist in Qingdao!

Cost

The programme fee is usually £1,495 per person for the 4, 8 or 12-week option, however Regent's has secured a huge £900 saving for students, meaning the fee is now just £595 per person. There’s no upfront payment, or application fee to start the process, and the fee is only due when you have secured an internship you’re happy with.

As part of the Remote Internship Programme, you will be partnered with a ‘Cultural Mentor’ who will help you increase your intercultural awareness. This cultural exposure will not only assist you during your internship (collaborating with colleagues and external partners) but will also connect you with other students from all corners of the globe.
