BUNAC is a scam

Don't bother with these guys. Especially the IEC Canada program. I paid the $450 and went through all the hoops, got all my paperwork together, received an invite to apply from Canadian Immigration, filled out ALL the Canadian immigration application paperwork, and then.... Then the immigration paperwork asked for proof of my student status. Wait, what!?! BUNAC never said anything about a student requirement. In fact, all their website and customer support services say is "American passport holder between 18 and 35" can apply.
So I put in calls and inquiries with both Canadian Immigration AND BUNAC, and have still yet to receive any kind of response from either organization. The problem is, unless you complete your application within a certain time frame of receiving your Invitation to Apply, Canada will rescind your invite. So, my invite was rescinded. And I was unable to reapply because they had already allocated all their IEC visas at that point. Hence, I paid BUNAC $450 for them to forget to tell me that I need to be a student. Thanks for the lesson....

    Hi Brian, thank you for taking the time to review our Work Canada program - we always welcome feedback.

    American passport holders aged 18 – 35 are eligible to apply to the program. Upon signing up, BUNAC provides instructions on all aspects of the application process, including what to provide in the student status section if the applicant is not a student. The IEC do outline a timeframe in which participants must submit their applications, as explained in the instructions you received from the BUNAC team. As US citizens cannot obtain an IEC visa for Canada without a letter from BUNAC, we are always ready to help anyone with any part of their application.

    If you wish to receive any further advice on this matter or on any of our programs, please do not hesitate to get in touch at enquiries@bunac.org.usa

Market in London

There are a lot of interesting markets in London, such as Borough Market, Spitalfield Market and Camden Market. The markets have very good vibes and great food. The merchandises are very diverse. The decorations on the buildings around are very unique.

Internship Experience with US-UK Fulbright, Winter 2013

I interned at the US-UK Fulbright Commission in London in the Winter of 2013. This was a phenomenal experience! I had to obtain and apply for my internship on my own, but BUNAC was there every step of the way helping me through the process of applying for my work visa. They were helpful in giving me the support and information I needed for the best possible experience. They were especially helpful when it came to providing social activities to get to know people outside of my internship placement. The pub meets that they hold every month helped me to foster wonderful friendships that I still have to this day. I would 100% recommend BUNAC and would use their services again in the future.

Overall good experience

I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to new Zealand through BUNAC. The support through New Zealand Internships was very helpful, especially on the social perspective. There was a good deal of flexibility provided by the company which was very helpful. The only drawback was that of the internship itself.

Intern in Britain

The BUNAC process was fairly easy, everything was explained in detail by both my program staff and BUNAC. Some of the parts about what to bring to the biometrics appointment were a little unclear prior to asking my program staff but after clarification everything went as planned. I'm having an amazing time in London and I love my internship, I'm very grateful for this experience
