"Work the World made planning and preparing my placement totally achievable."

Trinity College Dublin 2016


Our destinations provide a huge variety of flexible placement opportunities. Whether you want to trek through stunning rainforests, spot wildlife or simply soak up the sun on beautiful beaches, there is something for everyone.

exceptional clinical experience

Our students tell us that working in healthcare systems in the developing world is eye-opening. The disparity between the services offered to patients in developed vs. developing nations will become immediately obvious. Lack of access to funds, equipment and resources means the level of care patients receive is limited.

You’ll also have a newfound appreciation for the luxuries afforded to both staff and patients back at home, and also pick up skills from seasoned professionals working in these novel environments - one of the key takeaways from the experience. Relationships between staff and patients will be different to what you’re used to, as will the duties assigned to each role.


Exciting destinations

World travel is one of the most valuable experiences a person can have. It builds both confidence and compassion if you let it. Living and working in another country, another culture, delivers a perspective that is offered by no other experience. You’ll see things that others have never seen, not even seasoned travellers.

Try unusual foods, take part in festivals and make friends with new neighbours. Learn new customs and languages, and come to understand different ways of living. In your free time you’ll explore far beyond the reaches of the local community. Climb 5000ft mountains, dive on shipwrecks, trek through jungles, explore ancient cities and enjoy calm golden beaches with a cocktail or two. We have destinations to suit every taste. Just say yes, and we'll do the rest.
