What is MyTrip?
MyTrip is your online elective planner — you'll get access as soon as you secure your place.
Log in using your unique ID and you'll have access to every bit of information about your trip.
You'll see interactive timelines, preparation checklists, language lesson videos, and info about your placement hospital and the house you're staying in.
You can see photos of your housemates and find out what they're studying, and learn about the team who'll be supporting you during your stay.
You even get access to a huge index of information about the country you're travelling to. You'll learn everything from what to pack to how much a beer will cost you in the local currency.
Your preparation checklist is the first thing you'll see when you log in.
This is the most important page on the platform because it helps you keep track of the things you need to do in the run up to your trip.
Your checklist covers everything — from travel insurance to your placement objectives.
We even help with any official paperwork your university might need.
When you check something off your list the items turn from red to green, giving you an at-a-glance understanding of what's left to do.
The checklist helps you stay organised, completely removing admin stress and letting you concentrate on your studies.
Your itinerary is the second of MyTrip's two main views. It's a visual timeline that shows you information about where you'll be and when you'll be there.
It covers the entire duration of your time in-country with Work the World.
You'll see info about the house you're staying in, your placement hospital and the dates you can expect to be in them. You can even see when you'll be in each of the departments you've chosen to spend time in.
From the itinerary, you can deep dive into each section to find out the details.
The Info Pack is a treasure trove of information containing everything you need to know about your upcoming trip.
The pack is broken down into easy-to-read sections, so you can dip in and out of it as you like.
Here are some of the things you'll find out about:
- What to expect from your clinical placement
- Insight into local culture
- Fundraising tips
- Complete currency guide + typical local costs
- Travel and indemnity insurance guidance
- + a lot more
"It reassured me in a big way."
"You have all the information you need right there in front of you — things you need to do, things you need to prepare.
I felt better every time I ticked something off.
There were times when I thought, “What have I not signed, not packed, not paid for?” Logging in and seeing it all done and laid out made that feeling go away.
I can’t tell you the number of times I loaded it up and looked at all the little green ticks that showed I’d already done everything I needed to do. It reassured me in a big way."
— Charlotte O'Byrne, The Philippines
