SCoR Work the World Competition 2016/17 Entry Form
One lucky student member of the Society and College of Radiographers will be exploring a new world of radiography abroad.
Organised in partnership with Work the World, the competition prize is an international elective placement of up to four weeks to be taken between 1 January and 31 December 2017.
Included is UK and overseas support, meals, accommodation, flights and professional indemnity insurance.
Other costs such as visas, travel insurance, fares to work, money for socialising, and immunisations are not included.
Placements can be taken in any one of eight locations in five countries. To ensure you are happy in your chosen location, the SCoR and WTW will help you decide which location best suits your needs, experiences and expectations. Click here to find out more about each destination.
The winner will be chosen on their commitment to taking full advantage of the opportunity the international elective placement offers and will not be based on academic merit.
The competition is open only to current student members of the Society of Radiographers who have been in membership for 12 months to the first day of the first week of the elective placement.
THE DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES IS 5pm 9 DECEMBER 2016.
