Design internship

Announcements Posted on
  1. Offline

    Hi guys, I am a UK student heading to Sydney in a couple months to undertake a placement (un-paid internship) with a designer for 6 months. I can't apply for my student loan as my course isn't a 'Sandwich Course' and I am having to take a year of leave from university to take this placement. Therefore, making me an un-official student according to Student Finance. Does anyone know of any funding help I can apply for, for my placement year? I was told by another student that when they completed a placement they were able to claim back their expenses such as flights as it was to enhance their degree and future career, via Student finance. However, I am struggling to find this information myself. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated!
