BUNAC is ATOL protected, a partner of the FCO’s Know Before You Go campaign and is a founding member of the Year Out Group, as well as a member of WYSE Work Abroad Association.


Participants can take part in a BUNAC programme during a gap year, summer holidays, after graduation or as a career break.


BUNAC participants can experience everyday working life in a new country and explore some of the world's most incredible places during their stay. Volunteering, interning or working abroad offers an unforgettable experience and enhances employability for the future. Past members often describe how their BUNAC experience has been a key discussion point at job interviews.
