If you're in Year 11, 12 or 13 & aged 16 years or older we've got the perfect Summer for you!
Who are Premed Projects?
Premed Projects exists solely to provide students interested in healthcare careers with some amazing work experience to help them secure a place in university, decide if a career in healthcare is for them and to decide which speciality they want to study. We do this by running a series of projects aimed at teaching students all about careers in healthcare. We are the only place students can get UK hospital exposure and students work in hospitals & medical schools during their summer holidays. Premed Projects staff and students live in our exclusive accommodation with other students aged 16-18 from all over the UK and across the world.
Where Can I go?
You can choose to go on our UK projects during your summer holidays 2017 so it won't impact on your studies at school.
We'll collect you from Heathrow airport or London Kings Cross train station depending on how you are arriving, take you to the Premed Projects house where you'll meet your fellow students on the programme and after a welcome dinner and briefing our hospital time begins the very next day.

All of our projects are either 1-week experiences during half term holidays or 2-week experiences during your summer holidays so you simply choose the project start date that suits you best:

What's the cost?
As we pay the hospitals a large proportion of the project fee, provide your accommodation, food and comprehensive staff team so there are costs involved in all our projects. We ask for £195 to confirm your space then the following project fees which can be spread over monthly payments:
1 week 2017 UK projects
£195 registration fee, then either: 6 monthly payments of £225 or 3 monthly payments of £450 or a one of payment of £1350, 30 days before you travel.
2 weeks Summer Holiday 2017 UK projects
£195 registration fee, then either: 6 monthly payments of £392 or 3 monthly payments of £784 or a one of payment of £2352, 30 days before you travel.
If you are a student who is academically strong and meet our criteria of a non traditional background to entering healthcare our projects can be subsidised for you - see widening participation for more details.
What will I learn?
If you have an interest in healthcare then the experience you will get with Premed Projects will be invaluable. From shadowing world class doctors in the UK, learning all about personal statements, interview preparation to volunteering in care settings in London - a Premed Projects placement is exactly the ticket you need for a career in healthcare, giving you everything you need to apply.
We'll keep you incredibly busy in the hospitals and during our workshops and lectures at medical schools but you'll also also get lots of time to socialise with your fellow students too through movie nights, sightseeing tours and games, all with the supervision of our friendly and knowledgeable staff teams.
