A group of innovative organisations we’re proud to call our partners
Our partners love working with us because we are communicative, professional and approachable. We’re passionate and values driven and genuinely enjoy working in such a rewarding sector. We are equally happy working with a university to support 2 of their students as we are delivering a government-funded programme for 300 students per year.

HOW ARE WE FUNDED?
Through partnerships with the British Council, Education New Zealand and projects funded by Australia’s New Colombo Plan, the cost of many of our programmes is covered through government funding. We also work with in-country partners to deliver projects working with local university & government organisations.
We work with numerous high-profile universities from all over the world, whereby our programme is paid for on behalf of a number of students by their university. We manage every element of the programme; promoting the opportunity, screening applications, pre-departure briefing, on-site support and alumni networks.
Particularly for our long-term internship programmes, corporate partners (including internship host organisations) fund our programmes on behalf of the participants. We are always seeking more corporate partners to support our work.
STUDENT SELF FUNDING
Every year a number of students & recent graduates pay us to provide support, internship provision, insurance, visa processing & accommodation in our exciting destinations. We signpost students to external scholarships & bursaries, should they not qualify for our government, university or corporate funding streams.

"Pagoda Projects is spectacular in terms of the care and enthusiasm" / Expand for Full Quote
“Pagoda Projects is spectacular in terms of the care and enthusiasm they exude for looking after our students while on their internships and giving them a series of truly life broadening experiences is magnificent. Jamie Bettles (Managing Director) is special in that he set up Pagoda with a vision that true understanding of cultural differences comes from immersing oneself in a local culture in an everyday work environment – i.e. internships. And this leads to greater tolerance and generosity to different ways of life. Jamie lives by this ethos and it is reflected in all the Pagoda team. It is a great pleasure to work with Jamie and all the ‘team’ at Pagoda.
