Work the World

Nursing services:

Work the World was created in 2005 with the aim of providing healthcare students with safe, affordable and hassle-free overseas elective experiences. We offer placements in Africa, Asia and South America and last year more than 1,200 students put their placement hopes in our hands, quoting the diversity and flexibility we offer as well as our strong reputation and expertise in the field as the main reasons for their choice.

We believe that the secret to our success is in the package we offer. From the moment you sign up we work hard to understand your specific requirements before utilising the strong partnerships we have developed with hospitals, clinics and government authorities in each of the many destinations we travel to, in order to tailor a placement that fulfils your needs. We make sure you are fully prepared for your experience.

We offer placements to nursing, medical, dentistry, midwifery, radiography, physiotherapy and pharmacy students, graduates and professionals.


We require that you have completed one year of your healthcare degree by the time you depart for your placement.
