I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to do an internship in Santiago. I spent my 8 weeks completing a research project at the Chilean National Library, which gave me a great opportunity to figure out what sort of qualities I want in a workplace
when I finish school. Even though the placement process was done very close to the program starting (likely because of staffing changes going on at the Santiago center), the trip was mostly smooth and the IES staff were always willing to give advice about where to go and how to get there. They even took us on a couple of field trips for the classes and the entire program went to Valparaiso and Viña del Mar for the day! Santiago is also a very cool city with plenty of things to see and do no matter what your interests are. Chile is also a country filled with numerous famous landmarks, and cities like Buenos Aires are also not too far! Overall I had a great time. I would certainly recommend taking advantage of the opportunity to study abroad if you get the chance!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
