Academic Credit

Our internships don’t just give you hands-on practical skills, but can also contribute towards your university or college qualification. Talk to your lecturers about receiving credit for your time with us. We’ll also be here to help you in this process wherever we can, but since requirements vary, we handle each request on an individual basis.

 

Our high quality, award winning volunteer programmes have received university credit from many UK and international universities and colleges around the world. We offer practical, professional work experience opportunities for both undergraduates and postgraduates in a diverse range of fields, including environmental biodiversity and sustainability, marine sciences, education and teaching, arts, sports, health and social sciences. Our programmes allow students the opportunity to live and work within the ‘classroom’ of their chosen field of study, from coral reefs, rainforests and African savannahs, to African townships and slums, Latin American shanty towns, Asian villages and island communities.

 

We’ve worked with a number of top universities across the globe, assisting students in getting credit for their work on our programmes. We will provide you with an internship that not only meets your university requirements but also gives you a lifetime and fulfilling experience in your chosen field. Universities we’ve worked with to date, include:

 

  • University of Oxford
  • Plymouth University
  • University of Brighton
