SOFIE HONDEGHEM

 

Supervisor / Administrator NY-LON Trips

"The growing need for intensive international initiatives encouraged me to organize the trips to New York and London. As Business English teacher, the language immersion is an extra asset, next to the hands-on experience that corporate and academic excursions abroad offer. Finally, the participants' enthusiasm, the count-down to the departure date and the close contact during the visits motivate me to repeat the visits annually."

Participant London Trip

"Going to London gave me the opportunity to see the financial centre from up close. Lloyd's really blew my mind. I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see London from the 'not so tourist point-of-view'. In the end, I had an amazing time and I made a bunch of new friends!"

Participant London Trip

"Participants are given the opportunity to experience real business life in London. Our visit to Lloyd's showed us how insurance brokerage works and complemented our academic courses. Furthermore, knowledge of the world's most important international financial district will be a great asset in a future career. Not to mention the friendships with the thirty-nine other enthusiastic participants. Applying a second time for this course? Sounds like a no-brainer to me!"

Participant New York Trip

For me, the study trip to New York was a great short-term alternative to Erasmus. It’s an opportunity to explore one of the greatest, if not the greatest, city in the world in less than a week. It’s also a great way to get to know your fellow students and professors. In short, a memorable experience, interesting activities, a fun atmosphere and a great city!

Participant New York trip

Participant London trip

"I had the opportunity to join both well-organised visits to two of the world’s leading cities. The interactive workshops taught us how to trade shares, the guided visits led us to tourist landmarks and an interesting visit to the Belgian Chamber of Commerce in New York showed us the opportunities of starting a business in the USA. Everlasting friendships were created and unforgettable moments were captured in our memories."

DAGMAR VAN HEULE

Participant New York trip

"Anyone can book a trip to New York, but the asset of NY-LON is that doors were opened which remain closed for a regular tourist. Visiting companies behind the scenes, holding Q&As with local managers, and talking to expats about living and working in New York truly influenced my dream of an international career! A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity..."

Participant New York Trip

Participant London Trip

"I had the opportunity to attend both trips to the world's largest and most important financial centers. We had the chance to visit companies and places which are normally off-limits for tourists. We learned the tips and tricks of a successful business from local insiders. The combination of both educational and cultural activities made this an unforgettable experience. Signing up again for this once-in-a-lifetime experience? No doubt about that!"
