What is a Work & Study Program?
A work and study abroad program is a unique opportunity that allows individuals to combine work experience with educational pursuits in a foreign country. Participants in these programs have the chance to gain practical work experience in their field of interest while also immersing themselves in a new culture and expanding their global perspective. These programs typically offer a range of options, such as internships, co-op placements, language courses, and academic studies, allowing participants to customize their experience based on their goals and interests. Work and study abroad programs provide a valuable opportunity for personal and professional growth, as participants develop new skills, build international networks, and enhance their cultural understanding.

What are the difference between a co-op program and an academic program?
A co-op work and study abroad program and an academic work and study abroad program differ in their primary focus and structure:
Do I need to speak English?
Proficiency in the English language is a requirement for our programs; however, the specific language level requirement varies depending on the program. We recommend reaching out to one of our experienced counsellors to obtain detailed information regarding the language requirements for your desired program. In the event that your current English proficiency does not meet the minimum requirements, we can assist you in developing a personalized plan. This may involve enrolling in one of our language programs at your chosen destination, allowing you to enhance your English skills prior to the start of your program.
Our team is dedicated to ensuring that you have the necessary language abilities to fully participate and benefit from your chosen program. We are here to guide you through the process and provide the support you need to achieve your language and educational goals.

Am I guaranteed a work visa?
While we strive to provide work visa opportunities for our participants, it is important to note that the issuance of work visas is subject to the immigration policies and regulations of the respective country. We work closely with immigration authorities to facilitate the visa application process and maximize the chances of obtaining a work visa. However, it is essential to understand that the final decision rests with the immigration authorities, and visa approval is not guaranteed. The specific work hours permitted will depend on the program you choose. Our programs typically offer a minimum of 20 hours per week, with the possibility of working up to 40 hours per week, depending on the program and any applicable regulations. We are committed to providing guidance and support throughout the visa application process, ensuring that you have the best possible chance of obtaining a work visa. Our experienced team will assist you in preparing the necessary documentation and navigating the immigration requirements to increase the likelihood of a successful visa application.
