At EZC, we strive to make it easy for students to intern and study abroad on a highly personalized program. We do this through cost-efficient program fees, personalized advising, and a unique program format that takes into account each student’s career goals. As a smaller organization with a focus on smaller city locations, we immerse students in our family-like company culture.
Small and Focused: We offer programming in our own home countries – Ireland, Spain, and Italy. All program housing is either owned or directly managed by EZC or a partner institution abroad. We place all our interns with employers with whom we have a direct relationship. While reputable third parties may be utilized to assist in excursions or cultural activities, rest assured an EZC staff will accompany students at all times while on program activities.
Cost-efficient Program Fees: We believe having an immersive, meaningful experience abroad should be available to all. We are dedicated to maintaining our program fees as low as possible without sacrificing quality, safety, and immersion experiences. While we offer some exciting excursions in our standard programs, we make these optional in order to maintain a lower program fee for all, giving students more say over where their money goes.
Personalized Advising: Each student works with one advisor while in the USA, and each student has an assigned on-site advisor while abroad. We are on a first name basis with all our students (no student ID numbers), and we tailor our advising to each individual’s needs. For example, our pre-departure orientation is a personal video call with the student’s EZC advisor, where students (and parents) can ask questions and gain information that are relevant to the student’s individual program, travel experience, and personal situations.
Unique & Flexible Programs: Students on the same program will have different program experiences. Each student participates in 1 – 3 Career Talks that are customized to each student’s interests. These could include visits to companies in a student’s career field, a meeting with an HR manager in their field, or an exploration visit outside of a student’s career to gain insight into a different area of interest to the student. Each student also selects from among various housing options and excursion options to create a one-of-a-kind program. As a smaller organization, we offer a lot of flexibility with regards to your program options, method of program fee payment, deadlines, and more.
The best faculty-led programs combine academics with related on-site experiences. EZC strives to ensure a smooth program so that faculty can do what they do best – teach – and not worry about the rest.
