Q 1. Why Your International Training?
Answer: We have worked with different groups over the years catering to many types of groups and Individuals and have a proven track record in delivering a quality service to all our guests
Q 2. Why internships abroad?
Answer: An internship is a great way to get some valuable work experience in your field of expertise, while also improving your language skills. It’s also an opportunity to immerse yourself in a different culture while sampling all a new country has to offer.
Q 3. How much does an YIT programme cost?
Answer: Costs vary, depending on the package you select.
Q 4. Are flights included in the price?
Answer: No. Because low cost airlines often offer special deals, we advise students to organise their own transport to their host country.
Q 5. What types of Accommodation do you recommend, host family or apartment?
Answer: That really depends on what you’re looking for. Most students opt to stay with a host family as it offers all the comforts of a family home while also giving an opportunity to sample daily family life in your host country. Nevertheless, those who would prefer to be self-sufficient and to have their own space often choose to stay in an apartment. YIT can only organise accommodation in a host family but we can advise you to find your own apartment.
Q 6. What happens if I’m not happy in my work placement?
Answer: Your International Training is always at hand to help smooth out any worries you have regarding your work placement. We will try to resolve problems which may arise and if you are still not satisfied, we will find another placement.
Q 7. Will I be paid for the work I do?
Answer: Because internships form part of your education programme, employers are not required to offer payment for internships. However, some do provide a small contribution. It depends on your motivation and on the duration of your stay. Q
8. How much money should I bring with me?
Answer: €50 for food and approximately €20 for bus journeys during the working week. We advise all students on any of the EU programs to carry an additional €100-200 per month to cover additional expenses, such as utility bills, social nights out, travel expenses at the weekend, overnight stays in hostels etc
