Work Experience placements and internships abroad give you valuable practical experience as part of your internship requirement, gap year or career break, or just as a constructive volunteering holiday.

Since 1994, we've run a wide variety of overseas Internships across a diverse range of industries and destinations. The host organisations only accept interns through us and not directly, because of our expert vetting process and care in pairing interns and internships.

We also partner with many Universities, helping provide student accredited placements.

And if you can't find a relevant match, we'll customise one for you!

Like the hundreds of emails we’ve had from previous interns, you’ll also be saying, “This was the best thing I’ve ever done!”

In September I was offered a 6 month contract with MTV as their creative intern, and upon nearing the end of my contract, have now been offered a year contract at the BBC as production co ordinator.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you ... I would hugely recommend this to anyone, especially those who want to break into media via an alternative path ... my employer said she was impressed with the month I did in Australia, because it showed I had the initiative to get out there and do something productive, and it was something that stood out amongst the hundreds of CVs she received!

I really hope you continue with your programs across the world, and that people benefit from them as much as I did. It really is something I'll never forget. Thanks a million. Carmen Butcher

I have just finished my medicine interviews and I cannot do justice to how important my experience in India was to my application, so much so that yesterday I received an offer from Manchester (which was where I really wanted to go!).

Not only this, but my experience contributed to me getting a job in the NHS. My experience in a foreign healthcare setting gave me something great to talk about in interview and as a result I gained employment as a healthcare assistant (or auxillary nurse) on a surgical ward, again something that impressed at interview, and a job I am not sure I would have gained without my Indian experience, especially when you consider how competitive job applications in the UK are today!
