Working with us


For families

If you have a spare bedroom, you can earn additional income by having international students from the EU. The IBD Partnership is a reliable partner who pays weekly.

Our students are from various European countries and come for their work placement for a short period (usually for 4 weeks, but sometimes 3 months). We have students almost all year round.

We offer different types of boarding from self-catering, half to full board.

  • You deal directly with The IBD Partnership and not with any external parties
  • During the hosting period, you are given a number that is contactable 24/7 on an emergency basis
  • All students are bought to you on arrival by our driver, you will never be required to collect students
  • Students travel independently to IBD and their work placements

For companies

We cooperate with many companies and organisations in the South East region (Portsmouth, Southampton and Brighton) who take our students for work placements.

Usually the students stay for a period of 4 weeks (but it can be anything from 2 weeks to 3 months). Usually they are studying professional course or are recent graduates. Many of them already have professional experience in the field. They come to the UK to gain understanding about UK business and professional sectors, as well as to improvetheir language skills.

The students are fully funded and insured by EU education programmes, therefore there is no cost for your organisation. The IBD Partnership deals with all the necessary documentation.

Your organisation can benefit from having an international student:

  • Additional help and support without any cost
  • International experience and new ideas
  • Potential language advantage in trading with a new country
