Hi! We are Chiara and Valentina and we are 19 years old. We are two Italian students who are going to university next year. Thanks to our school in Italy, now we have the opportunity to do an internship at Hilderstone College for 12 weeks. Here we work in different offices like Student Services and Accommodation, Resources, Finance and Marketing. We also help with social media, social activities, students file and personnel matters. in every office we have a mentor who explain to us what we have to do. So far we have worked only for two weeks but for now it’s very interesting. Sometimes our tasks are a little bit boring because we have to do a lot of work on the computer.
Thanks to this experience we are learning how to work in an office. We are also improving our English and meeting new friends, from all around the world, among the students.
The college also offers some social activities like sport (football, basketball, tennis and volleyball) or dance or talks about important subjects like politics or geography. There are also some excursions to give the students the opportunity to visit nearby cities and, more generally, England. For example, last weekend we went to London and we visited the British Museum and, on the first Saturday after our arrival in Broadstairs, we went to Canterbury and we visited the Cathedral.
The college is located in Broadstairs, a small town in which there are a lot of events like the fireworks on the beach.
