Hospital work experience is why you’ll join, but there’s no reason why it shouldn’t be an incredible experience, too!

Your accommodation is situated in Central London located just a few minutes walk from the closest tube station in an ideal location for you to explore London with us. Rooms are shared between 2 students, split up into boys and girls.

We have arranged projects in London for several years now, and we find this accommodation an ideal base for the weekend.

We also have lots of communal space within the accommodation too, making for a great atmosphere. All rooms are simple but comfortably furnished, so you can be sure your free time outside your hospital placement is going to be every bit as enjoyable as your time spent within the hospital.

There’s nothing worse than being away somewhere where the food isn’t up to scratch, so we promise you’ll enjoy every mealtime with us.

Each morning, we’ll provide a continental buffet breakfast for you with fresh fruit, pastries, fresh juices, cereals and everything in between. This is available from 07:30 am each morning.

We’ll take you to a different restaurant that we love each night, with choices ranging from Katsu curries, superfood salads, duck spring rolls, ravioli and more pizza choices than you can shake a stick at. 

During Hospital Placement:

When you’re in the hospital, you’ll either eat in the doctors’ canteen if in a hospital, the student union if we’re at a med school that day, or we’ll prepare you a buffet lunch fit for an aspiring medical student to eat!

All of our project leaders are full-time members of the Premed team, and all 5 have been with us since 2016, so they’re very experienced. Together, they have overseen thousands of students joining us for work experience.

Additionally, there is 24-hour security and CCTV at the accommodation, so you really are well looked after. 

Don’t worry, though; we won’t cramp your style too much. You will have lots of time to socialise with your fellow students. But, it’s good to know wherever you turn, there’s sure to be someone on hand to ensure you have a safe, stress-free experience. 

It’s our aim to allow you to concentrate on your hospital work experience while we take care of the rest. Anyway, we like to think we’re a pretty cool bunch!
