Outbound student experiences

Elective or Extramural Placement | Pacific Bridge Initiative


Elective or Extramural Placement


We have collected here the experiences from our University of Sydney students who have travelled to our partner universities (current and past) for an Elective or Extramural Placement. Some reflections on the experience are long, some are short – all have had only minor editing in an attempt to maintain the students' voice. They are all unique, some quite personal, all worth reading no matter where you choose to do your placement. We hope that you enjoy reading about these placements and that this gives you just a hint of the international experiences – both professional and cultural – that you can have as a part of the Sydney Medical School.
