High quality placements

At ESPA we go to great lengths to ensure we recruit vibrant companies who will provide high-quality placements abroad for your students. We visit each company in person to ascertain that they will provide a valid role within the company, will value the student and be committed to their development in a working environment.

In-Placement support

Our aim is to nurture ongoing relationships with businesses so that they will continue to work with us and your students on a rolling programme. During each placement, we are continually in touch with both the student and the company so that we can check both parties are happy with their progress. In the unlikely event of any problems, ESPA will act as a mediator to resolve issues.

Your placement requirements

We understand that International Business and Marketing students find it easier to get placements in the UK and Ireland due to the demand from the host companies. If you require any particular type of placement, for example, Civil Engineering, IT, Law or Architecture please contact us with your requirements and we will do our best to fulfill them.

Accommodation sourced and managed

We will find appropriate accommodation for your students, preferably sharing with other students or young professionals. All rent, utility bills, and broadband are covered by the placement company and all the student needs to find is their living expenses, which should be covered by their funding.

The experience

We want your students to have fun as well as work hard. Our dedicated team will help your students to find their way around the UK and Ireland, with travel advice, places to stay and will even organize small group trips if several students wish to do the same thing.

You and ESPA

We would like to forge strong links with all universities and educational establishments whose students use ESPA. If you would like to meet us in person and hear more about our vision and values, we would love to come and visit you. Just let us know at edu@espauk.com and we will arrange it!
