My position was unique as I was seeking to finish my final internship in order to complete my Master's in Social Work at Florida State University in Vancouver, Canada. I worked with Lubka Jacobs at BUNAC, who provided me excellent advice and recommendations in getting my work visa for Canada. She and all the staff I dealt with are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The help documentation that they provide is very user friendly and to the point.

BUNACs prices are better than the other similar service providers and having this opportunity led me to getting a job in clinical counselling after finishing my internship!

There are lots of opportunities for jobs in Vancouver. My one recommendation would be to start looking for jobs and making connections before you arrive so that you are able to maximize your time in Canada upon arrival.

How can this program be improved?
I found it to be beyond expectations. No trouble what so ever. To keep it this way, keep Lubka on the BUNAC team! She was so responsive and really knows her stuff!

This experience was a dream for me. Because it is nearly impossible to have an internship experience in UK and especially in London. The words are not enough to describe London. London is one of the most imporant centres in the World in terms of work environment and the city's atmosphere. It is a leading city in the world. Since the beginning of my internship, I met with many people from different countries. The atmosphere is fantastic and it is even more cosmopolitan than any city in the world. The work environment contributes me in terms of discipline, vision and work experience. It is a great programme for everyone, because it has professional experience, a wonderful London experience, strong network and future opportunities.

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.

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.

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.

How can this program be improved?
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.
