Most work placements are unpaid. Companies will usually make a contribution towards living expenses, for example reimbursement of lunch and transport costs .In some cases students may be offered a job at the end of the work experience, but this cannot be guaranteed.

 
Accommodation
One of the most effective ways to learn more about British life, language and culture is to stay with a local family. Some students may prefer to stay in residential accommodation or in a local Guest House or Bed and Breakfast. For students who choose to take an English language course in the UK before of during the work placement, the school or college may help provide accommodation for the duration of the work placement. For students not planning to take a language course before or during the work placement, Eurobridge International can assist with finding local accommodation to suit all needs.

 
Insurance
Students are advised to take out personal, travel and health insurance for the duration of the work placement. Eurobridge can arrange insurance cover, if required.
