On one of our placements you’ll live in a shared house with all the comforts of home.

Yes, that includes WiFi.

Each house has spacious shared bedrooms, bathrooms, lounges with comfy furniture, dining rooms, gardens… the list goes on.

Your Work the World house is your home from home, and a fun social hub while you’re with us overseas.


Who will my housemates be?

HOUSEYou will live with fellow students from different healthcare disciplines all over the world.

You’ll get to know each other well. Most people travel to placement together, socialise in the house (or out and about) in the evenings, and organise weekend trips together.

And that goes whether you're travelling on your own or as a group. Your housemates will be a diverse crowd, but you’re all in the same boat, which brings you together.

When you need some time alone, the houses are large enough that it’s easy to find some space to be by yourself.



Are meals included?

KANDY HOUSEYour breakfast and dinner are freshly prepared by your in-house catering team. The teams have impressive culinary backgrounds and will prepare local delicacies and more familiar western-style dishes.

Lunch is either available at the house (depending on your placement schedule) or you can rustle up something for yourself to take in—the cupboards and fridges are kept well stocked.

Don’t worry if you have food sensitivities —your team can accommodate dietary requirements too.

Don’t forget to ask us about our famous weekly barbecue nights when enquiring about your placement.


Will I have support in-country?

HOUSEExperienced, locally-hired, structured in-country teams run our houses.

You will become most familiar with your in-country management team. They’re responsible for your entire experience overseas from the moment you land to the moment you leave.

Based in an office within the house, they go above and beyond to make sure you have the once-in-a-lifetime experiences we’re known for.

Each house has a housekeeper to make sure your living space is clean and tidy. There's even a 24-hour security team for your peace of mind.
