Experience London Alongside Hospital Placement

London has something for everyone; all tastes, budgets and interests. Blessed with modern buildings that sit seamlessly with truly historical ones, it’s hard not to be impressed by London and the thriving city it has become. London is really a collection of neighbourhoods, all knitted together and packed full of culture, entertainment and fun, with surprises at every junction. Home to over 40,000 shops, it’s a shopping mecca whilst also being one of the greenest cities on earth with fabulous parks and gardens dotted all over the city.

To give you an idea of what to expect, here’s an example of how your week will be structured while you’re with us:

  • During the briefing, we will talk you through everything you need to know, from meal times to curfews and the all-important Wi-Fi password. 
  • Then it’s time for our first family feast!



  • The aim of the day is for the whole group to spend time together, get to know each other, see some of the best sights London has to offer and have lots of fun! 
  • In the morning, we will have a guided tour from one of London’s best accredited tour guides seeing everything from Downing Street to Buckingham Palace
  • In the afternoon, we will become part of London’s gruesome history and travel back in time to an age of adventure. 
  • Uncover the dark secrets that lie beneath the world’s most famous and haunted bridge: London Bridge.
  • We’ll then visit London’s premier medical museum, where you will get an insight into London’s fascinating medical history.

  • Then it’s back to the accommodation for a delicious dinner followed by a movie night in the cinema room…sweet or salty?



  • The first step to saving lives is to become a qualified first aider! 
  • At the end of today, you will be first aid certified for three years (that looks pretty good on your personal statement!).



  • It’s time to learn all about palliative care, spending the day with nurses and GPs in a private nursing home & hospice situated in East London.


Saturday & Sunday:

  • Yay for the weekend! Have a lie-in. You’ve earned it, but don’t waste too much time as there is so much to do in London. 
  • Shopping in Covent Garden, a musical in the west end… speak to your Project Leaders, and they will make sure you make the most of your free time!


Hospital Placement: Week Two

  • In the afternoon, you will be able to participate in a super exciting practical session which is otherwise reserved for a very small amount of the university’s current medical students. It will be an experience you’ll never forget!



  • It’s your last day on the project and time to make sure you have all the necessary skills to make a successful application to medical school. 
  • You will spend the day at one of London’s best medical schools learning how to write the perfect personal statement to ensure you get an interview, and how to impress the panel to secure your space in medical school. 
  • The day will be led by Junior doctors and third-year medical students who have all sat on medical school interview panels, so they really know what they’re talking about. 
  • After a final dinner, it’s back to the accommodation for a farewell party.


Saturday & Sunday:

  • It’s time to say goodbye. 
  • We’ll arrange your transfers to Heathrow, or escort you to Kings Cross station to ensure you get home safely, ready to tell everyone about your awesome summer! (I feel emotional already).
