Earn commission by sending students to LIVE, LEARN & WORK on the beautiful south coast of England

Established in early 2022, this innovative new programme helps your students come to the UK on a rewarding study and working holiday.

This unique programme, created by the International Education Association (IEA) and BH Area Hospitality Association (BAHA), takes advantage of the UK’s Youth Mobility Scheme visa that allows people aged 18 to 30 from 11 participating countries* to travel, study and work in the UK for up to two years.

Our dedicated staff and network will help place your students in an IEA accredited English language school followed by a work placement in the hospitality sector in Bournemouth, Christchurch or Poole. It can be difficult for international students to find job opportunities in the UK, but we have access to many paid jobs offering free training and certificates too.

* Australia, Canada, New Zealand, San Marino, Monaco, Iceland, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and India.

Please note that students must first enter a ballot if applying for a Youth Mobility Scheme visa from Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea or Taiwan. The ballot is due to open in July for two days only – more details can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/youth-mobility-scheme-visa-ballot-system


We welcome candidates to the area by providing a free orientation course on living and working in the UK, as well as support finding accommodation and travel transfers



We help place young people who wish to improve their language skills to an intermediate level in one of seven IEA accredited English language schools in the area.



Young adults whose English is above an intermediate level can be placed directly into paid employment in this vibrant location on the south coast of England.
