What can internship funding be used to support?
Monies secured through funding can be used to support the following:
- living expenses – we will contribute towards students’ rent while on an internship.
- travel – the amount of funding received will vary upon whether students travel within the UK, Europe or Internationally
- insurance – as many countries do not have an NHS system in place, we will contribute towards health insurance. However, students travelling internationally must consider necessary vaccinations. Arranging and checking relevant health care is entirely the student’s own responsibility.
- Visa – some countries require you to obtain a work/study Visa. We will contribute towards this fee although the responsibility of acquiring a Visa falls entirely upon the student.
Students who receive funding must agree to use the money for the purpose requested (as clarified within the above categories).
All students applying for funding must sign the agreement form in the application form (downloadable above) and provide a report after the internship.
IMPORTANT: students are responsible for securing their own insurance and must comply with FCO guidelines. Please contact us if further advice is required.
