USA Sales and Marketing Intern

8/10

The BUNAC was extremely helpful in providing expert advice on my intern in Britain programmed! I cannot give them enough praise, the Arizona team made it very easy to help me out throughout the entire Visa process, I think I called them everyday with questions! The London team really helped me out once I arrived and provided the assistance I needed throughout the internship. I would highly recommend BUNAC as they allow recent graduates the opportunity to come to the UK to gain international work experience which has been invaluable to me and a fantastic experience.

Thank you BUNAC!

If a company has bad reviews, mention it to your applicants before hand to ensure they end up in the best possible internship and share any reviews about companies you are previously aware of.

Grosvenor farm internship

10/10

After graduating from college in the states, i wanted to travel to the United Kingdom to experience agriculture and learn ways that it is performed on a global scale. the farm that i worked on was leading the country in technology, and science on how to make milk safe and efficiently. The only problem i found after receiving the opportunity was figuring out how to get over to the country and work-study legally. Bunac was great in making that happen. I talked to a woman named Rebecca, which got me all figured out on my side, as well as my boss David.

Working in England on a farm, producing milk and learning different culture was truly extraordinary. i met up with a bunch of people in what was called a young farmers club which was exactly what was stated in the title. A bunch of young farmers. David runs a very impressive farm, which i would recommend the experience to anyone that was interesting in progressive agriculture.

BUNAC helped changed my life!

9/10

I was fortunate enough to receive BUNAC's scholarship in 2016. I was immediately thrilled at the potential of interning in Britain because I had studied there just the year before as part of a study abroad program, and I had been actively seeking opportunities to return.

I received the scholarship around August 2016 and then I had to decide if I would search for the placement company on my own or use one of their partner placement companies. I decided to independently seek a placement which took much longer than I anticipated but it ultimately worked out better than I could have imagined. Once securing placement, the BUNAC team was incredibly supportive through the Visa process and the weeks leading up to my UK arrival. I will admit that the idea of moving overseas again without the support of a full school system (as I had the year before) did make me nervous at first, but the BUNAC team was very responsive to e-mails and even facilitated a few phone calls when I requested them to clarify many details.

I ended up in London for a company that I had interned at before while in the US. I was in London from March through June of this year (2017) and had the time of my life. I made incredible friends in and outside of work and the city itself was absolutely overflowing with exciting things to do and see. Upon arriving, I reached out to the BUNAC team to notify them of my arrival and smooth transition and they were very excited for me. I was even able to meet the people who made this experience possible for me when we met at a pub local to their office in the city.

I write this review one month after my return and I am preparing to return to London as the company has agreed to hire me as a full time employee in London. This was all made possible with the support of BUNAC's scholarship and the phenomenal team that were willing to work with me in my aspirations. Thank you so so much for the opportunity. I would definitely recommend reaching out and making the most out of your experience.

If possible (I'm not sure how many program folks there are at a time) it would be cool to have regular meet ups for the BUNAC interns to hear what everyone is doing. I know when I first went out there, I was eager to meet people and did want to meet other foreigners who were going through a similar experience. Could be nice to have a meet up every few months.

Interning in London

7/10

My experience thus far with BUNAC has been very good! They helped me prepare for my internship abroad very easily, and I felt even over-prepared. Requirements and deadlines were made very clear, and it was always easy to find the information that I needed. Getting all of my documents together and sent out was easy with all the instruction they provided, and I got my Visa in plenty of time. Very pleased.

My company is not the best. I think they have gotten bad reviews before, so I'm not sure why they're still an option.

Launched My Career

10/10

I owe a lot to the BUNAC program. I had always wanted to work in Venture Capital, and when I found the opportunity to intern for 6 months with one of London's best early stage venture capital firms, Seedcamp, I jumped at the opportunity. The only issue was the visa process - the firm I wanted to work with had never sponsored a visa before and were unsure if they could.

Luckily, I found the team at BUNAC - and they quite literally saved the day. They helped me with my applications, paperwork, best practices and made the process a breeze.

They made sure I was ready with everything I needed (housing, insurance, bank accounts, medical needs) in order to hit the ground running at my internship.

Without the BUNAC program, I never would have made it to London, or gotten a chance to kick start my career at Seedcamp and furthermore receive my job offer from another venture capital firm following my internship.

The BUNAC team made sure I felt like I was at home in London, they even brought me this surprise goody bag on Thanksgiving filled with all kinds of stuff I would be missing.

I highly recommend going with the BUNAC program for anyone that has an interest in landing an internship in the UK - it was an absolutely amazing experience.

How can this program be improved?

I would have liked a meetup with the other interns.

I just wish the program lasted longer.
