“Unfortunately, I don't have any connections in the field of psychology and have found it hard to gain clinical experience in the UK, therefore, I began to look for placements outside of the UK. I received an offer to complete a four-week mental health placement in Indonesia, but after completing a study abroad year did not know how I would be able to finance it. Thanks to the Work experience Bursary, which helped with the cost of my flights, I was able to take part in the placement and gain invaluable experience which can be transferred to my studies and will help me stand out to future employers.”
