Clothing Requirements

We post out a Medical Project T-shirt to all students 3-4 weeks after the placement is confirmed. Students are asked to wear their Medical Projects T-shirts when they land at Mumbai Airport. This is to help us identify you on arrival and it also helps you meet other students at connecting airports.

Whilst on placement you will be required to dress in suitable clothing. This will be a pair of scrubs and either trainers or flip flops. You will also be required to bring a pair of safety goggles. A set of Medical Projects scrubs can be purchased here:

Add an extra week?

We want to ensure every student gains the best possible experience when they join us. If you wish to add an additional week to your trip where you can experience an additional department or take part in our weekend trip, your personal student advisor can update your application! If you would like to take advantage of this please email Eleanor at:

Spending Money

We advise students to take between £60-80 per week they are with us. You can't get Rupees exchanged here in the UK as it's a closed currency. Instead students can change money at the airport or hotel on arrival. 

Health Declaration Form

Before you begin your trip we require a small amount of information about your current or past health conditions. This is so that we have all relevant information on hand just in case you need to see a doctor while you are away! 

All students under the age of 18 must have their parent or guardian fill in this form. If you are aged 18 or over you can fill in the form yourself. Once completed please email the form to your Student Advisor at You can also post it to us at Medical Projects, Clavering House, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE1 3NG.


Finding the correct insurance for your trip is very important and we will not take students who are not suitably covered. Normal travel insurance will not cover you for your work experience within a hospital. We recommend using a company called Wesleyan.


Telephone: 0800 197 4490

We recommend calling the team and ensuring you receive the correct insurance package. You are more than welcome to source your own insurance as long as it covers your time within the hospital.

Visa Application

To enter India you will need a visa. Please read our visa application guide here:
