Why do a Working Holiday in the UK?

A working holiday in the UK lets you experience the best Europe has to offer at your own pace. Attend a world-famous music festival, drink Butterbeer at Hogwarts, ride the rollercoaster on the Brighton Pier, or seek out film locations from Game of Thrones. Perhaps you’ll learn about your family history, or experience living in alluring London. Whichever the case, basing yourself on this fascinating continent gives you the opportunity to explore so many different cultures and bucket-list destinations. As an English-speaking country, it’s easy to get oriented in your new home which draws people from all over the world. You’ll build a network of international friends and make memories to last a lifetime. 

Experience Living in Europe

It’s the opportunity of a lifetime! You’ll be a stone’s throw away from so many incredible places in Europe. Visit Barcelona, Paris, or Amsterdam on your holidays.

Stay for Up to Two Years

Canadians are allowed to stay for up to two years on a working holiday in the UK. That’s enough time to properly explore the continent and consider yourself a local.

Pay for your Travels

While living and working in the UK you’ll be making British Pounds – which are worth a lot more than the Canadian dollar. This means the money you make in the UK will take you further.

Choose from Four Countries

The United Kingdom is made up of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Take your pick or experience living in them all!


The UK government charges £244 to apply for the UK Youth Mobility (Working Holiday) Visa. They have a number of requirements that must be met in order for your visa application to be approved. This includes applying for the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) for the duration of the two-year visa duration at a cost of £940. Your personal Stepabroad Travel Advisor will walk you through each step of the application in complete detail and ensure you provide the correct documentation. The requirements are as follows:
