Guest post: Year Abroad - What interning is really like & some advice

Today I have something a bit different for you all. My boyfriend, Tom, who is also on a year abroad in Germany at the moment has had a rather different experience to mine so far, and is here to share some advice for anyone thinking of interning on their year abroad or year in industry. He had a tough start to his year abroad, but it's all working out now!

So you’ve probably come on this post to see what interning on a Year Abroad is really all about… I can tell you that it has been the hardest yet best thing I have ever done. What follows is a list of 5 things you can expect and look out for prior and during your Year Abroad, particularly if you have a year out in industry.

Year Abroad - The end of the first half



schloss mannheim university
I'm currently sitting at home in Norfolk in front of the fire with a pork pie and watching Jeremy Kyle and the puppy run laps around the room. Life at home is sweet. I've only been home less than 24 hours though and I'm already missing the Land of Deutsch. I say it at least once a day (apologies for that), but oh my word, time has absolutely flown. The first 'half' of my year abroad is over and I'm now back at home for 2.5 weeks before heading back out for another 6 months at my internship in Frankfurt am Main.

Looking back on my last 4 months in Mannheim, I've had some amazing times. I thought today I'd share my favourite moments in Germany thus far..
