UK - Work and Travel

Work and Travel UK Programme is perfect for you if you’re taking a gap year or you’ve decided to change environment and work abroad for at least three months. The United Kingdom is a blend of different cultures, nationalities and lifestyles, and the programme is a challenging opportunity for you to intimately experience life here. You will work side by side with people from all over the world, and this will give you the chance to make friends for life.

    Work and Travel UK means:
  • International work experience and environment;
  • Opportunity to earn money;
  • The chance to learn about a new country and culture;
  • Opportunity to enhance your English language skills;
  • The possibility of making new friends.

Global Choices provides: assistance with documentation, finding an employer in the UK, guidance and advice during the application process, and while applicant is employed in the UK.

Most of the employers provide accommodation for a fee. Usually the price is about £30, however it varies from employer to employer. Some placements can be with free accommodation and even free meals.
