You may be in a position where you have a shorter-than-expected window to get your overseas placement sorted. But don’t worry - we can organise a placement for you in as little as a couple of weeks thanks to the infrastructure we have set up on the ground.

We would typically organise your placement well in advance. But that does not mean we can’t organise an equally high-quality last-minute placement for you. 

Over the course of the last year, we have developed a placement fast-track that lets us plan and build award-winning placements faster than ever. We offer a limited number of last minute placements, so do get in touch if you’re thinking about this and we can discuss options with you.



You can book your Work the World overseas placement with total confidence. Once you’ve secured your space, you can make unlimited changes to your travel dates, absolutely free.

You’ll find peace of mind in the knowledge that our well-established safety measures help mitigate the risks associated with Covid, whichever destination you travel to. This is because our safety blueprint gives us control over each and every aspect of your experience from your in-country team's safety training to sanitisation of your private accommodation.

Travelling for your elective? 

As the world is now reopening and travel is back on the cards, many universities are once again allowing overseas electives. 

Has your university only just given you the go-ahead? Or you’re possibly waiting for a decision to be made about overseas travel. Get in touch, even if it’s only to see what possible options are available to you. 

You’ll be supported with university paperwork including; risk assessments and hospital and supervisor information.

Have you missed out on undertaking your overseas placement as part of your degree? Does your degree course lack an overseas elective placement module? Or has your university currently stopped overseas placements? 

Well, 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. You’ll get exactly the same level of trip customisation as everyone else. You may even get more choice, depending on your level of experience.
