"Etudiante en BTS Assistante Secrétaire Trilingue à l'Ecole Nationale
de Commerce (ENC) Paris, 17ème, j'ai dû effectuer un stage de
6 semaines à l'étranger. Vu la difficulté de trouver un stage
en France comme à l'etranger, j'ai fait appel à Eagle U.K. Ceux-ci
m'ont trouvé un stage à Audio Publications Ltd. Cette entreprise
m'a proposé 2 projets en relation avec L'Espagne. J'ai donc mis
en application mes connaisssances linguistiques en anglais et
en espagnol, ainsi que tout ce qui correspondait au secrétariat
en anglais (correspondance, téléphone...) Eagle U.K. m'a trouvé
un logement chez un couple sympathique qui m'a aidé dans l'aquisition
du vocabulaire de la vie courante, différent de l'anglais appris
en cours. Un stage à l'étranger est indispensable pour apprendre
les réflexes de base d'une langue, et pour l'épanouissement personnel.
Je remercie Eagle U.K. pour le sérieux et le suivi dont elle a
fait preuve depuis ma demande jusqu'à mon départ d'Angleterre"
"Aufgrund meines Studiengangs am Euro-Business-College benötigte
ich ein zweimonatiges Praktikum im Ausland. Zu diesem Zweck wandte
ich mich an EAGLE U.K. die dafür sorgten, daß ich nicht nur in
der von mir gewünschten Region eine Stelle erhielt, sondern auch
in dem Aufgabenbereich tätig war, den ich angegeben hatte. EAGLE
U.K. stellte sicher, daß mir Verantwortung sowie selbständig zu
erledigende Aufgaben übertragen wurden. Auch während der Praktikumszeit
hielt EAGLE U.K. mit mir Kontact und vergewisserte sich, daß die
von mir zu erledingen Tätigkeiten anspruchsvoller Natur waren.
Dank EAGLE U.K. fühlte ich mich als vollwertiges Mitglied im Team
und nichtals ein Praktikant"
"EAGLE U.K. hat mir geholfen einen Praktikumsplatz für Monate
in England zu finden. Ich war als Übersetzerin in einer Firma
für Hard und Software eingesetzt, wo ich völlig eigenständig arbeitete.
Diese Erfahrung war für mich in jeder Hinsicht von Vorteil! Besonders
dankbar bin ich EAGLE U.K. für die Vermittlung der Unterbringen,
wo ich außergewöhnlich freundlich aufgenommen wurde. Alles in
allem war es hilfreich, eine Kontaktperson vor Ort zu haben, wenn
man sie braucht"

"As a business student I have worked with commercial estate agents
specialising in acquiring radio base stations for mobile phone
operators. The company was considering how they might extend their
operations to Germany so they required a German speaking student
to assist with some preliminary work on sizing the potential market
and administrative matters. At first I had some routine duties
because I did not know a lot about the telcommunication sector,
but at last I found my interest in this area and I was sure I
would learn something new and interesting, especially taking into
account that the telecommunication sector is one of the future
markets. All in all, I had a very good time in the U.K. not only
concerning the interesting work I had to do but especially concerning
the friendly English people in the office and in the street. All
the persons I met were really friendly and always had time to
talk to me and answer my questions. I would recommend to all students
who have the possibility to participate in such work experience
to take it, especially those who are keen on learning or knowing
more about the culture and mentality of foreign countries while
at the same time gaining work experience and improving their English.
Thanks to EAGLE who gave me this opportunity and at the same time
were responsible for the great experience I have had in the U.K.
which I will never forget.
"Work experience was a compulsory part of my studies. I needed
to find a six-month period in audit and accountancy. I applied
to EAGLE U.K. who found me a work placement within a small firm
of chartered accountants and auditors. All staff members were
nice and very open and taught me about English practice. Also,
I had the opportunity to go to clients' premises helping for the
audit mission which gave me valuable experience. I made the most
of my stay in England, learning so much with auditors and discovered
the daily life within a friendly family. Many thanks to EAGLE
"During my studies at an International Business School in Germany,
I had to do a 4 month work placement in an English speaking country.
With the help of EAGLE U.K. I found a placement within a marketing
company. I have to say that I had the chance to work in a nice
environment and with a professional team that accepted me right
from the beginning as an integrated team member. I gained a lot
of experience regarding market researches and the translation
of business-to-business letters. Furthermore, before I came to
the U.K. my English was satisfactory, but after my stay my English
was good. So I really can recommend to everybody to come to the
U.K. to learn about it's culture, it's social life and to do a
work placement because this may be very helpful in the future
regarding the spirit of the European Community. When I returned
home, I took with me good memories of my stay in the U.K.".
"I would like to thank EAGLE U.K. for organising a placement in
a British company that has given me a broad experience and an
insight into the British labour world.Particularly, I would like
to underline that the company profile and the general duties in
which I was involved have completely met my requirements regarding
my technical background as an engineer and my wish to apply these skills within a business and marketing environment.I was
fully satisfied with my family and enjoyed the stay in England.
The placement supported me in a very enjoyable way and I was consequently
able to find an appropriate job in Germany, working in a large
international company and having the opportunity to use my language
skills.Perhaps not each placement will necessarily lead to job
straightaway but certainly everyone's chances are essentially
improved and I can only strongly recommend a stay abroad. I thank
EAGLE U.K. very much indeed for their comprehensive and expert
"I have followed a course in secretarial studies and in 1995 I
had my first experience in administration. At the end of my second
year of studies I decided to come back because I had enjoyed it.
I applied to a French association which works in collaboration
with EAGLE U.K. and this allowed me to be in England within a
few days to do a training period. It enabled me to acquire new
knowledge and to improve my English to a level whereby I could
speak on the telephone. EAGLE U.K. also arranged family accommodation
for me and looked after me during my stay. I would recommend a
work experience to other students because it is essential and
fundamental within the European Union. I thank the French association
and EAGLE U.K for their efficiency and their rapidity"
"EAGLE U.K. arranged a 4 month work placement for me in an environmental consulting firm in Birmingham where I was involved in particular in arranging a visit to Germany in order to:
The work experience was very interesting and beneficial to me.
The people with whom I worked were very kind and helpful. In addition,
EAGLE U.K. arranged my accommodation in a very nice guest family
who treated me like a member of the family.Both the work experience
and the people I met not only helped me to improve my written
and spoken English but also gave me the opportunity to get to
know another country with it's particular culture, which was the
most valuable experience I could have gained"
"After having studied German at a French University, I wanted
to get more experience in this field. I applied to EAGLE U.K.
who found me a work placement in a big cable television company.
I adapted myself quite quickly to the new world of European marketing. Not only have I have improved my English level, developed
my own curiosity, learnt to understand my own way of work and
obtained more confidence but I have also had the opportunity to
be employed by this company on a permanent basis as a marketing
assistant for Europe. I didn't expect this proposition at all
but, as a person who wanted to get more experience, I have taken
this chance. That's why I would encourage anyone to take the opportunity
to have a training period. Both the job and my family accommodation
J'ai vraiment apprécié cette
expérience très enrichissante, autant du point de vu personnel que professionnel. Sans l'aide de
Eagle UK, je n'aurai sans doute jamais réalisée ce stage qui a
été une réelle réussite.
Ex-student of BTS "Force de Vente"- Marketing/Business in Saintes, France. A work placement as marketer was a brilliant opportunity to decide my own way in the future, increase my contacts and develop my skills. For all those reasons, I would like to thank "Eagle UK" and all the people who looked after me during that 6 months.
Ancien étudiant de BTS "Force de Vente" business/Marketing à Saintes, France. Un stage comme marketer fut une experience formidable pour faire le point sur mon avenir, developper mes relations et mes competences. Pour toutes ces raisons, je remercie "Eagle UK" et toutes les personnes qui se sont occupées de moi pendant ces 6 mois.
"I am a Chemical Engineering student at a Dutch polytechnic. Eagle U.K. arranged a work placement for me with a laminate manufacturing company involving paint research and development, which was exactly the field I required. I have gained more experience relative to my studies, improved my technical English and learned a lot about English companies. The atmosphere was very good and the people were very helpful. Eagle also arranged family accommodation for me close to my company which was a wonderful way to discover the English day today life. It was also reassuring to know that I could contact Eagle U.K. in the event of any problems. I enjoyed my stay and plan to come back for holidays in the future."
"I am a student at the University of Rome where I
am studying Economics and Business Administration. Eagle U.K.
arranged a work placement for me within a large publishing group
specialising in the production of business to business directories. My
work included telephone research, particularly European-based Japanese companies and general clerical duties. I would recommend
a training period to other students because it helps to
understand the working practices of another country and is always
"Eagle U.K. has been very efficient and quick to find a placement for me following my application. My work involved the promotion of a big international music festival. I had a wonderful and very interesting time in England. I had the opportunity to work with people who were very open and taught me everything about the organisation of such an event. Eagle U.K. found me exactly what I wanted and what I looked for in a work-experience placement. They looked after me during my stay and were always at my disposal for advice or information. I thank them very much".
"As part of my course studies leading to an MA in
International Commercial Negotiation at Le Havre
University, I was required to find a project dealing with
export marketing analysis and produce a 90 page report. I
applied to Eagle U.K. who found me a work placement
within EMI which was in direct relation to my studies. I
was asked to make a project concentrating on EMI's chain
of supply which included recording, design, marketing,
manufacturing and distribution. The project enabled me to
learn a lot about the worldwide activities of the company
and to use a technical vocabulary related to
manufacturing, exportation and distribution. I met many other people
working for EMI who were very helpful to me, especially with my project. To be accommodated in a family enabled me to use
a daily vocabulary and I could practice my English
intensively. The two situations were complimentary. The training
period was very beneficial and I would recommend it to other
students because it is the best way to learn the mentality of a
country. With the EEC, it is important to undertake a work
experience abroad, especially in Great Britain.
