In each of our destinations we have a large private house which you can call your home for the duration of your placement. It is a shared space, with an onsite housekeeper and caterer that work together to keep everything clean, tidy and well run The Program Manager and Assistant Program Manager are regularly in the house to keep up to date with your hospital placement and answer any questions. We also employ security staff to make sure the houses are safe and secure.

Meals and fresh water are included in the program and our caterer will always incorporate specific dietary requests. We also make sure there are nice social areas so that you can relax with a group of international peers at the end of a day. We also run free weekly language lessons to help you integrate in the hospitals. 

When we set up each house our staff are very much involved - we use local providers to "dress" the house and craftsmen to provide the furniture. This means each house is entirely unique to the area. In some cases they are also quite eclectic! Many companies prefer to offer the chance to stay with a local family in a home stay. This is commendable in some cases, but our students often find that immersing themselves in the hospital during the day is enough of a cultural challenge and that actually coming back to the Work the World house - knowing it is safe, secure, English speaking, full of friends, lots of fun, has a comfortable bed and delicious meals is far preferable!
