Life-changing experience!

With the help of BUNAC I felt comfortable to begin my journey in New Zealand alone. I met other travellers early on through BUNAC and they also helped me find my first job.

Even later in the year, I turned to them for advice and help for my next steps and they were always there to help. IEP, the company that help in NZ were extremely helpful too.

If you're wanting to travel and want that extra bit of security and guidance, BUNAC is an excellent company to go with!

FinTech experience - London

I had no idea where to start in getting a visa to work in the UK. So what do you do if you don't know something? - google it. After a quick online search search I came across BUNAC, who would act as my sponsor and basically vouch that I was who I said I was etc. With their help I was able to navigate the intimidating international bureaucracy and come away with the right to work in the UK, which was helpful because my job offer was in London!

Fast forward 6 months since then and it has truly been an experience of a lifetime. I have traveled around Europe during Holiday and on the weekends - going to Luxembourg, Germany, Austria, Hungary, The Netherlands, Belgium, France and Sweden. It's amazing how close and connected everything is via high speed train or even just taking a quick 50 minute flight from Heathrow. Seriously, I've been through Heathrow so many times that I've become a special member of British Airways. Also here's a pro tip for you - if you can, take the Express train from Heathrow, it's only 15 minutes versus at least 45 on the tube.

As far the the internship experience itself, I have met more people and learned more than I ever would've imagined. A highlight for me was working in a small team of people in a startup environment. Everyone had different accents and were from different places, making the work environment much more mentally stimulating and interesting than I was used to. I certainly have made the future easier for myself with this work and life experience from all that I've seen and experienced.

Rating of the experience as a whole = wouldn't trade it for anything.

Definitely recommend.

Working holiday Australia

This year has been the fastest in my life. I had a wonderful time and this is perhaps the best decision I've ever made! I think more Americans should do it as it is one of the more fulfilling experiences a person can have.

It would have been nice if the Perth office was still open but I still found the city easy to navigate and managed to secure employment rather quickly. I would recommend this program. Absolutely.

    Hi Gabriel! Great to hear you had such an amazing experience with BUNAC in Australia! We're hoping a Perth office opens again soon. Good luck with everything!

    BTW, we have a very similar New Zealand program....

We find group working with BUNAC

As a International Internship Provider, We Find Group has had a great experience with BUNAC for Certificates of Sponsorship for our students! They are constantly improving which makes it easier to get our students through the sponsorship process. Additionally, BUNAC provides clear and concise step-by-step directions that make the process much easier to get through. For any questions along the way, there is always someone to contact that can answer your questions.

This year, I've worked directly with Brianna Prime and she is an absolute joy. She is always available and a huge help to our team.

I can't speak higher of our companies experience with BUNAC and would recommend them to any placement company needing to get Tier 5 visa sponsorships!

Thank you BUNAC!

It was a great experience for me and I am so happy to have had this opportunity! I was able to travel to another country and be immersed in their culture, all while have the satisfaction of working. BUNAC made the transition extremely easy and were always available if I had any questions. I had an amazing experience and would recommend to anyone thinking about working abroad!
