The Maldives

Placement Year International - Work placements in the Maldives

Placement Year International - Work placements in Nepal

The stunning Himalayan mountains and ancient Buddhist and Hindu cultures make this a unique destination. 

Relax by the shores of Pokhara lake or join the hustle & bustle of chaotic Kathmandu during your time in this wonderful developing country high up in the Himalayan mountains. Widely spoken English helps communication whether you’re at work or trekking in the mountains!


Placement Year International - Work placements in Thailand

One of south east Asia’s most popular tourist destinations and an important regional business hub.  

One of our most popular destinations, Thailand is famous for hot weather all year round, long sandy beaches and crystal clear seas. Great for people wanting to either live in a big cosmopolitan city like Bangkok or experience a quieter life on the coast or small island but with relatively easy access to local towns. 


Placement Year International - Work placements in Vietnam

Vietnam is less developed than it’s close neighbour Thailand but is a great destination for adventurous young people who want to be more independent during their placement year overseas. 

Work amongst the unspoilt coastline in the south of Vietnam or the busy cities of Da Nang, Nha Trang or Ho Chi Minh City. You will experience live in a developing country with it’s own unique culture, language, food and geography. 

United Kingdom

Whether you want to work in London with it’s theatres, Buckingham Palace, London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Oxford Street and constant life and energy, or experience life in another city or more traditional setting you will become part of the amazing blend of cultures which make the UK a special place to live and work.
