Projects Abroad offers a number of top-quality placements that allow you to obtain valuable work experience abroad while exploring a new culture and way of life. Whether you’re looking to gain work experience before, during or after university, or even during a career-break, we have a programme to suit your interests.

Work experience abroad serves to really enhance your CV, and is a great help with university applications. It’s also a wonderful way to upskill yourself, and can help improve your chances of getting your dream job.

These work placements are available for people of all ages, abilities and levels of experience. We offer great flexibility, in that you can choose what you want to do, where and for how long. You also select your own start date, so it is easy to fit our projects into a busy schedule. Our prices include all accommodation, meals, insurance and support you receive whilst on your placement. They do not include flights, which we can also arrange, for an additional fee.

Available work experience projects

We have a wide variety of work experience projects in destinations around the globe. Some options include:

Cheyenne Turcotte , General Journalism Projects in South Africa"We were able to attend Press Club meetings and listen to actual working journalists in the area speak about the issues, which really put the news in perspective. The experience of working in an actual magazine office in a real world setting really helped me to solidify my career goals and I came home with a much greater understanding of the entire process."
