Win A Summer In The USA!

BUNAC Launches Work America Competition For University Students

Work abroad expert BUNAC has launched a competition aimed exclusively at university students keen to experience a slice of American life. Three lucky winners will be jetting off to the States from June to September 2015 on the company’s Work America programme with a pre-arranged job, return flights and insurance.

The Work America scheme is available to full-time UK university students (including those in their final year) and represents a fantastic opportunity to discover the real America, be more than just a tourist, earn money, go travelling, gain valuable international work experience and essential life skills. With a J-1 visa, students are entitled to spend up to four months during their summer vacation working and travelling in the States.

Under BUNAC's Work America Ultimate Package, winners will receive a seasonal job placement in tourism, hospitality or retail in a top vacation spot such as Maryland, Martha's Vineyard or California, plus flights and comprehensive medical insurance. The package includes ongoing support from BUNAC throughout the entire exchange programme, from the visa application through pre-departure orientation to US tax and banking. 

To enter the competition, visit and answer a travel-related question! The closing date for all entries is Thursday 29 January 2015. The three lucky winners will be chosen at the beginning of December 2014, January and February 2015.
