Why Go Overseas?

Missed out on undertaking your overseas placement as part of your degree? Does your degree course lack an overseas clinical placement module?

Either way, there's good news — It’s absolutely possible to travel outside of term time, and independent of your university. You can even travel once you've graduated.

Here’s why we think you should take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity while you still can —

You can be flexible

The most obvious benefit of travelling independent of your uni is that you're not tied to predetermined dates. Go whenever you want for as long as you like.

With more flexibility comes even more choice. And because our programs are open all year round it’s more likely you’ll get your first choice of destination.

You don’t have to worry about your overseas trip fitting around your personal commitments either.

Instead, why not coincide your trip with some local festivals in your chosen destination?


It’ll look great on your CV

There’s no doubt that an experience like this will still stand out on your CV. 

Employers will see that you’ve gone out of your way to broaden your horizons and gain invaluable experience off of your own back. 

You’ll even get a certificate of completion from us to add to your academic portfolio.

Make the most of your free time

Not only will you gain valuable clinical experiences whilst overseas, but it’s also a great way to round off years of hard work and studying before you dive into your career. 

It’s be hard to know when (or if!) you’ll next find time to go on a trip like this.

The experience will give you a big boost of confidence too. It'll set you up and get you into the right mindset, ready to kick-start your career.

Once-in-a-lifetime travel opportunities

With no time restraints, you can easily add extra travel opportunities to the end of your placement. 

This is your chance to get life-changing clinical experience and explore the world. You can even spend an extra week undertaking our unique Village Healthcare Experience, to give you an additional edge over your peers.

You've got total freedom to create your dream trip without compromising on time.
