Why Go Overseas?
The late Terry Pratchett's quote from his book A Hat Full of Sky is very relevant. He mentions,
"Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colours.
And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving."
Most of our interns have a life changing experience that gives them a new perspective on life and builds their self confidence,
soft and hard skill sets and gives them the ability to manage themselves, become more culturally aware; problem solve and improve
their language abilities. They become more mature and clearer about their future career paths.
Page 2 of our web site has a more information on this.
To make the most of your experience it is important that you are hard-working; have a positive attitude, genuine nature; make friends;
flexible to change and adapt to a new country's customs, language, laws, food, weather and people. Those that do these things will
have an excellent time travelling and with their overseas exchange programme.

Success in India
GEM on the former Deputy Prime Minister's trade mission to India and signing a Memorandum of Understanding with Amity University
at British High Commissioner Residence with the former British Deputy Prime Minister.
On Monday 25 August 2014 the former UK Deputy Prime Minister the Right Honourable Nick Clegg made a speech at the GREAT Business Conference in New Delhi in which he said:
"As India works to expand its own education sector, both academically and vocationally, we want to boost those ties - with more student exchanges, joint research projects and
learning partnerships. Today, UK-based education company, Global Education Management Ltd for instance signed a valuable new agreement with Amity University to provide vocational training."
