If you decide to go overseas for your elective placement, we know it will cost you more than if you were to do your placement at home, but we also know that you truly will have the time of your life, and that it will be worth every single penny!
To ensure our elective placements are accessible to everyone, we have introduced a flexible payment model. So what does this mean?
Secure your placement for £300
Once you have paid your £300 registration fee we will confirm your placement within 24 hours. You’ll get direct access to your personal online elective planner - MyTrip. You’ll receive a call from us welcoming you to the programme. And, from here we’ll start building your placement (with you!) over the next few months.
At this point, there is no more to pay. Your placement has been secured and your final balance is not due until 90 days before you depart.
So how do our flexible payments actually work?
Now we’ve guaranteed your placement it is up to you how much you pay and when. So, what does this mean?
One lump sum
Some people decide to make one final balance payment on or near the due date for their trip (90 days before you depart).
Many choose to ‘pay as they go’. This can be as many instalments as you wish.
We have many people who decide to host fundraisers, receive money for their Birthday or Christmas, some manage to secure funding through sponsorship or grants and even through crowdfunding pages.
You can read some great stories here about past travellers who have managed to fundraise their whole elective placement
Through your MyTrip portal, you’ll have direct access to an online payment system. From here, you’ll have an itemised log of all your payments to date, so at any point you can make a payment no matter how large or small.
Our flexible payment option enables you to spread the cost of your overseas placement and is ideal for those who like to budget. If you would like any more advice on how this works, complete the short enquiry form below and one of our placement consultants can send you more information.
