...Covid-19 is going to be around for quite some time and we just need to get used to it. I had no idea that by spending two weeks in a Ghanaian hospital how much my confidence would grow in relation to midwifery, and me as a person too. I honestly now feel like I could do anything.”

Frequently asked questions

Are your programs open?

Yes - our programs are open. 

We are accepting registrations for all programs for travel in 2022 and beyond. Demand is high and capacities are limited so get in touch using the Inquiry Form on the website and one of our team will be in touch.

Are there changes to the way your overseas programs operate?

Now our programs are open, we are following enhanced procedures to minimise the risks of Covid-19 transmission. 

Our locally-hired, highly trained teams on the ground maintain strong and constant communication with our Head Office. This allows us to have first-hand information and insight in real time. 

We have incredibly strong relationships with our partner hospitals and the local authorities in all locations, ensuring that as the new world evolves every part of our service offering will too.

You can also feel safe knowing that you’ll live in our privately run, exclusive  accommodation, accessible only to you, your housemates and our in-country team. 

Whichever Work the World program you decide to travel to, our enhanced procedures will be in place. And, as with every other aspect of our service, these protocols will be tailored to the specific needs of each destination.

If you would like further information please contact our team using the Enquiry Form.

What precautions are there be in your partner hospitals?

We have long-standing relationships with all our partner hospitals and we’ve been liaising closely with them, as well as local health authorities, regarding any changes implemented in the hospitals where our internships are undertaken. Every country differs slightly in their approach and there will be a continual assessment of all aspects of placement delivery, ensuring we adapt, advance and update you on what may be required at your time of travel. 

Covid-19 testing is available in all program locations in which we operate. This includes local government hospitals as well as private medical facilities. Our dedicated supervisors working with you on placement will be following all hospital transmission-prevention protocols.  

How will travel with Work the World change?

Every Work the World program has its own specific protocols and safety measures in place. Your personal online internship planner (MyTrip) will have all the latest information on all measures relevant for the country you’re travelling to.

Your Operations Manager, who works directly with our overseas teams and who knows the country and the hospital you’ll be placed in inside and out will contact you well in advance of your departure to go through all of these measures for your arrival. 

Once you’ve arrived in-country you will also receive an in-depth induction from our overseas teams to reiterate all measures we have in place. 

What happens if I book and I then cannot go?

We want to give you total peace of mind when booking your overseas placement. We understand that future travel plans may need to change, and in these unprecedented times we know how important it is for you to have flexibility. With this in mind, we are offering you more flexibility than ever before. 

We have now relaxed our Terms and Conditions, meaning you can now make as many changes to your booking as you like should you need to. Whether you need to change your travel dates or your chosen destination, you can do so easily and we have waived all amendment costs.

If you would like further information please contact our team using the Enquiry Form.

Can I go once I’ve finished at university?

Yes, our healthcare internships abroad are for both students and professionals. Every element of your experience is tailor-made depending on your level of experience. You can read more about our placement for graduates here.

Will I still be able to travel at weekends/when I am not on placement?

Our experienced in-country team members will be monitoring and working closely with local government and tourism agencies to get first-hand information and insight on travel within the country you decide to travel to. 

This may mean that places of interest have differing opening hours or capacity levels than normal, but with the correct planning and information in advance, you will be well informed ahead of arranging your weekend adventures.

Will my travel insurance cover me if I have to cancel my placement?

If you were unable to travel, depending on the notice period given for cancellation you may be due a refund from Work the World. The cancellation and refund policy is set out in section 6.3 of the Terms and Conditions.

Depending on the reason for cancelling, your travel insurance may well cover you for any costs you can’t recover from Work the World.
