“During my studies and early stages of my career, I have had several international experiences. From a cultural perspective, none of them come close to my Go2learn internship in Chengdu, China. This was an eye-opener for me in so many ways. The Chinese mindset, work ethic and perspectives on day-to-day things were completely different from what I was used to. Even after four months, I can’t even begin to describe all the differences. It’s something you have to experience.”

“I chose to go on a socially relevant internship in Belgium. After some talks with Go2learn, I was offered an internship at Trendhuis, a company that develops durable Human Resource concepts. While contributing to their work, I acquired new useful skills. But most importantly, I am now 100% sure that I want to find a job that’s socially relevant!”

During a Go2learn internship, you’ll contribute to a social, ecological or cultural goal, via the company or organisation that hosts you.

What kind of support do I get?

What kind of support do I get?

Go2learn takes care of you before, during and after your learning trajectory. Before it starts, you’ll partake in a talent scan, we’ll formulate clear learning objectives and you’ll receive an intensive course in interculturalism. During the trajectory, you’ll receive counselling by a Go2learn employee and a local mentor. Afterwards, you’ll receive feedback about how you can apply what you learned during a job interview and your acquired new competencies will be certified. In other words: Go2learn starts earlier and ends later than other internships.

When can I go?
