Since 1962, BUNAC has helped half a million students and young people work and travel overseas. From working abroad adventures in North America and New Zealand, worthwhile volunteer projects in the Americas, Asia and Africa, to teaching internships in China, Thailand, Colombia, Cambodia and South Africa and marine internships in Mexico, whether your students are looking for summer or pre or post university gap year options, BUNAC has the resources, knowledge and experience to help them get there.

Enhancing Student Employability

Encouraging your students to take part in a work, volunteer and intern abroad programme will set them apart from other applicants in a narrowing and highly competitive job market. The skills and experience that they inevitably gain can be translated into a professional context and enhance their employability.

Core benefits include: 

  • Gaining essential career skills such as teamwork, communication and leadership
  • Experiencing how businesses operate in an international environment
  • Gaining "life skills" such as independence, initiative and resourcefulness
  • Gaining a wider perspective of the world through making new friends from around the world and extensive post-work travel

BUNAC Placement Opportunities

Certain programmes are especially suited to students who are enrolled on a specific course of study to provide them with industry work experience. 

For example, anyone working towards an American Studies degree should find Work America a particularly rewarding placement, as the programme allows students to experience living and working in the USA for up to 4 months during the summer. 

Similarly, students studying teaching or sports coaching would gain great experience from our Summer Camp USA or Sports Coaching in South Africa where they would not just teach but develop coaching programmes for different ages and abilities. 

See how some of our past participants have been helped by their BUNAC adventure.

If you feel that BUNAC would be able to assist you in setting up a relevant placement scheme for your students, please don’t hesitate to contact BUNAC by emailing or calling us 0333 999 7516.
