We will update these pages with summer abroad opportunities for summer 2023 by 1 December. In the meantime, you can stay up to date by clicking "Keep up to Date" and joining our mailing list.  

There are many opportunities to work abroad over the summer. An international internship, organised by an internship provider could provide you with support and accommodation. Alternatively, you could learn as you work by training on the job to teach English as a foreign language.

There are two ways to work abroad for the summer: 

University of Bristol partner summer work programmes

You will be supported by the Global Opportunities team through the process of applying. You will attend the summer programme with other students from Bristol.
