Accommodation & finance
Visiting medical elective students are required to make their own accommodation arrangements and are liable for the associated costs.
For most of the year the halls of residence are fully occupied and so visiting students will not be able to apply for accommodation there.
In July and August only, there may be vacancies which students can apply for by contacting the Accommodation Office, once in receipt of a confirmed elective placement offer.
All enquiries regarding halls of residence accommodation, including queries on cost, should be made direct to the Accommodation Office.
All other accommodation enquiries can be directed to the electives officers.
Please note however that we cannot request halls accommodation on a student's behalf, or advise on private accommodation providers.
Visiting medical elective students are required to make their own travel arrangements and are liable for the associated costs.
It is not possible to offer any financial assistance towards the expenses of visiting medical elective students, and this includes daily travel costs during the elective placement.
It is advisable that students take the travel, accommodation and other general living expenses into consideration before applying for a medical elective palcement.
