The Work Experience Bursary Fund

So, you recognise the importance of work experience and understand that it can enhance your employability in your chosen field when you graduate. However, the area in which you want to work is traditionally one which only offers unpaid work experience placements – and you really can't afford to work for nothing however beneficial it may be to your future. Sound familiar?

Now there is an opportunity for you to take up that placement – you just need to make your case!

The Careers Service is launching a new Work Experience Bursary fund to help support students who wish to take advantage of unpaid work experience opportunities. You can apply for money to help with expenses and other costs – but you have to persuade us to part with it first!

Following your successful application for an unpaid placement, you will need to complete and submit an application form which is available from the Work Experience Team at the Careers Service. The completed form will be assessed by the Work Experience Team and if successful the money will be made available to support your unpaid work experience placement.

If you need any more information or an application form please let me know.

  1. Hi I am interested in this bursary as i have gained a placement working in Africa in an orphanage. I am a student from the education department and i am interested in pursuing a career in charitable work overseas with children affected by poverty, war or famine. Would this type of placement be covered by this bursary?

  2. In response to your query regarding the work experience bursary, every application will be considered on an individual basis. Your application will involve you completing a form outlining your objectives, what you hope to gain from the work experience in terms of your future career development and the amount of money you will require to carry out the requirements of the placement.

    In order to clarify the finer details, can you please contact me directly to arrange a time to meet up for further discussions.
