We are thrilled to announce that Indo Ocean has once again been recognized for excellence in providing internships abroad. For the third consecutive year, we have secured the 2nd place award in the Overall Top Internship Providers category at the prestigious GoOverseas Community Choice Awards. This achievement underscores our commitment to offering exceptional international internship experiences and the positive impact we continue to make on the lives of our participants.

The GoOverseas Community Choice Awards are a testament to the dedication and hard work of organizations in the field of international education. The awards celebrate outstanding providers based on reviews and testimonials from program participants. Indo Ocean’s consistent recognition in the Overall Top Internship Providers category reflects the satisfaction and positive experiences shared by our interns.

Why Indo Ocean Stands Out:

  1. Comprehensive Internship Programs: Indo Ocean takes pride in offering comprehensive internship programs that cater to various fields and interests. From environmental conservation to business development, our diverse range of opportunities ensures that participants find an experience aligned with their career goals.
  2. Cultural Immersion and Support: We believe in providing more than just a CV-building opportunity; we offer a holistic experience that includes cultural immersion and robust support systems. Our team is dedicated to ensuring that interns feel comfortable and supported throughout their entire journey.
  3. Reputation within our Global Network of Partners: Indo Ocean has garnered a sterling reputation within our global network of partners. This network encompasses esteemed organizations, companies, and NGOs that actively recognize the quality of training and experience our interns receive. The reputation we’ve cultivated extends beyond the internships themselves; it extends to the caliber of our graduates. Hiring organizations within our network consistently acknowledge the high level of expertise and professional growth that our interns exhibit, solidifying Indo Ocean’s standing as a trusted provider of top-tier internship opportunities.
  4. Positive Participant Feedback: The GoOverseas Community Choice Awards are based on real feedback from participants. Indo Ocean’s consistent 2nd place ranking is a testament to the positive experiences shared by our interns, highlighting the impact our programs have on their personal and professional development.

Looking ahead

As we celebrate this achievement, Indo Ocean remains dedicated to enhancing and expanding our internship programs. We are grateful for the trust and support of our participants, and we look forward to continuing to provide life-changing international internship experiences.

Securing 2nd place in the Overall Top Internship Providers category for the third consecutive year at the GoOverseas Community Choice Awards is a remarkable achievement for Indo Ocean. This recognition reaffirms our commitment to delivering exceptional internship programs and making a positive impact on the lives and careers of our participants. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has been part of the Indo Ocean journey, and we eagerly anticipate the continued growth and success of our international internship programs.

Go Overseas Community Choice Awards

Intern abroad programs help interns manage the stresses of moving internationally for a typically short-term job – while still allowing them the chance to expand their worldview and learn important personal and professional lessons first-hand.

They looked at all the reviews we received this year on internship abroad programs, including the scores they asked reviewers to give on the following categories: Growth, Support, Fun, Housing, and Safety. When they crunched the numbers and read the reviews, we found the top internship abroad providers in 2023.


Hear from some of our graduate reviews which made this award possible…

The amount of experience I gained through this program is irreplaceable. As a diver and conservation biologist this program really delivered experiences that enhanced my skills and knowledge. You could tell the staff wanted you to get to your highest possible potential while with them and have been more than happy to help with future endeavors. With my program complete, I feel eager to step into the next phase of my life.


Penida Project 2022, USA

You can’t go wrong choosing Indo Ocean Project for your Marine Research and/or Conservation Dive Master internship. Interns are coming from every horizon but with the same passion for the ocean so you’re pretty sure to make new friends (and dive buddies!) coming from all around the world.

This was pure happiness. This was the best experience of my life.


Raja Ampat Project 2022, France

The progression I made was not only with my diving, but also confidence in and out of the water. I managed to get over my fear of open water so quickly with the help of the instructors, who took time out of their day to talk to me about any issue I was having, whether it be to do with the program or just something I wanted to talk about. 

From seeing over 70 sharks in the 2 months I was there to sitting on the beach, drinking beer by a fire. My time in Bira was one of the best things i’ve ever done.
