Our Covid-19 placement guarantee for 2021/22

Oct 9, 2020

Our Covid-19 guarantee for placements in 2021/22

We know many people want to book placements and internships for 2021/22 but are concerned about paying money now in case their plans are cancelled because of Covid-19.

We want our interns to have the excitement of booking their placements with the reassurance that if anything changes because of Covid-19, we’ve got your backs.

So we launched our Covid-19 guarantee.

What is the Placement Year International Covid-19 guarantee?

It’s very simple. If you book a placement with us but it cannot go ahead because of Covid-19 then Placement Year International will allow you to choose between:

  • starting your placement remotely, then joining the host company in-person if/when international travel resumes
  • doing a placement in a different destination which is NOT affected
  • postponing your trip to later dates
  • cancelling and getting a refund

Placement Year International will also not charge any admin fees for making the changes.

Note that normal cancellation conditions apply if you cancel your placement for any other reason (not related to Covid-19).

What about flights?

If your placement is abroad, we recommend only booking flights that are date changeable and refundable (airlines often charge a fee for changing the date or cancelling flights but these are normally fairly modest). Placement Year International can give advice before any flights are booked.

Any questions?

Book your place for 2021/22 with peace of mind 

We are looking forward to saving you time and stress arranging your placement or summer internship for 2021/22. Find out more about our 2021 placements here. Then send us your CV and we’ll arrange a video call to discuss suitable options with you. 

We look forward to hearing from you!
