The costs of our placements are detailed on our prices page, and they vary according to where you go and how you long you want to go for. The prices shown include all of the pre-departure arrangement of your placement, your accommodation, food and drinking water at the house and the support you will receive from the head office and at your destination. Flights, visas and insurance will need to be arranged independently. We are happy to help with this if you are not sure where to start but we don’t include these in our costs as our students travel from all over the world at different times of the year and are likely to have better access to affordable deals than we will. You should also account for money you will spend recreationally and on travel at our destinations.
Whilst food in included at the house, you might want to go for meals with other students from time to time, so you should ensure you budget for this. If you wish to take any trips during your free time, our staff will be happy to provide you with advice and information but the cost for this would be your responsibility. Equally, your day-to-day travel costs are not included in our packages. We do provide transfers at the beginning and end of your placement, and whilst our houses are located at close as possible to the placements, you may find that you need to take public transport to reach your hospital or clinic. You should budget for around $2 AUD per day. Of course, you will be shown the best way to get to and from work during your orientation session.
