Medical Projects - How It Works

How It Works

Before You Book

Applying to join a course with Medical Projects is simple. Once students have decided which course they would like to join, simply fill in our online application form and pay the deposit to secure a place.

If students are unsure which course they would like to join, or would just like a little more information, they can always speak to a member of our friendly Student Placement Team who can assist them.

Once Booked

After a student has secured a space on their chosen course, they receive access to their Student Dashboard – an online trip planner with all the information provided to prepare for their course.

Every student is assigned a personal Student Placement Advisor who will guide them through preparing for their course, while making sure students send through all the relevant information required to organise their programme of choice. Plus, they’re always on hand to answer questions!

Before You Arrive

Each student will receive a welcome pack by post containing your Medical Scrubs, ID badge and emergency contact cards along with some information to help them prepare for their course. 

We keep in touch with all students in the run up to their course to make sure they are aware of arrival procedures, to answer any last minute questions and to provide information and contact details on what to do in the case of any unlikely emergencies.

Arrival Day

Students are provided with arrival and departure windows in which they should book their transport to and from their chosen course. Our staff will be at the designated meeting points during these windows. This is usually local airports or train stations near to the course location. Students are then accompanied to our accommodation by our staff to meet the rest of our student group and take part in some fun ice-breakers!

All students also take part in a Student Induction on their first evening at their course. Here, our staff tell them what will happen throughout the week, along with any dos and don’ts.


During The Course

Students will spend Monday to Friday learning about a career in healthcare through a variety of immersive and practical experiences, expert tutoring from world-class teachers, and visits to local places of interest.

Evenings and weekends are designed to provide students with the opportunity to make the most of the local area and culture. Depending on the students chosen course destination, this could include visits to the theatre, cooking classes, local dancing lessons, or even looking for lions, tigers and bears at a wildlife safari!


After The Course

Our commitment to students does not end when they complete their courses with us. All students who take part in a residential course receive a personalised certificate to help them with their university applications.

We are also happy to provide references to students, and often find that our students gain so much from their time with Medical Projects, that they come back to join us for another course – or two!
