If your child is accepted into our program, they will need to confirm their place with an initial deposit equivalent to 800 British Pounds within 7-14 days of their acceptance, depending on when they apply. The number of places is limited, so the deposit reserves a spot in the program and allows us to begin the placement process with our partner companies and organizations. The deposit is also fully refundable if your child is not placed in their first or second-choice career field – giving them peace of mind that they will have a fantastic internship experience abroad. However, if your child withdraws from the program, the deposit will not be refunded.
Typically, another payment will be due 30 days after your child’s deposit. Complete payment details will be communicated by email. You can also see more information on our program fees page.
