How It Works
General Questions and Answers:
What type of placements do you offer?
We run Pre-Medical, Pre-Dentistry, Pre-Nursing and Pre-Midwifery placements. These are specifically designed for students who are applying, or thinking of applying, to study one of these at university.
How old do I have to be?
You need to be 16 years or older at the time of travel. For students under the age of 18 we will also need consent from a parent/guardian. There is no upper age limit for our projects.
Are the students supervised?
Yes, students are supervised at all times by UK members of staff. We meet students at the airport on arrival and they are fully supervised until they reach the airport on departure. Students over the age of 18 are able to do some travel independently but this must be signed off by a member of staff beforehand.
Yes. Students join us from all over the world. The only thing you will need to check is that there are no major issues obtaining a visa from your country. We can help you with any visa enquiries you may have.
I’m not from the UK, can I still travel?
Yes. Our projects are usually booked up around 2 or 3 months in advance, so early booking is advised!
Do these projects book up quickly?
How long you join for depends on which destination you choose to go to.
- Our overseas placements run for up to 6 weeks. We recommend completing at least two weeks, this ensures you get at least two weeks of interview and clinical training sessions.
- Our Project London placement runs for one week only.
How long should I join for?
Of course! When completing your application form just add your friends name to the additional information box
Can I travel with friends?
What is not included?
The only things that are not included in the cost are; flights, visas, vaccinations, insurance and spending money.
Flights are not included in the cost of the project. This is because students join us from all over the world and it would be very difficult for us to control everyone’s flights. We recommend using Skyscanner to find the cheapest flights. Travel agents can also advise you on the best flights.
Are flights included?
Is the registration fee refundable?
If we can't accommodate you for your chosen dates, we will offer you an alternative. Once we have agreed dates then your registration fee is non-refundable. This is because we are holding your space within the accommodation and hospital and potentially turning other students down as a result.
