Gain valuable work experience in the heart of the Himalaya!

We work with businesses in the capital city of Kathmandu and hospitals and health clinics in the picturesque city of Pokhara, known for its stunning backdrop of the Himalayan mountains.

Our Covid-19 Guarantee gives you reassurance and helps you plan ahead in turbulent times. 

Why Nepal?

Nepal offers beautiful scenery, world class trekking and worthwhile work placements.

You can easily experience Nepal’s rich culture when exploring the many ancient temples and bustling markets of Kathmandu and Pokhara. Take time off your work placement in Nepal to trek in the Himalayan mountains and even fly around the world’s tallest mountain, Sagarmatha (Mount Everest) before you return home. It’s a fascinating country to get immersed in during your work placement.

The Nepalese are known for their generous hospitality and kind nature and will welcome you to experience their culture and traditions.

Our Medical electives are in and around the picturesque city of Pokhara, along the shores of Pokhara lake. It is known as the gateway to the Annapurna range of the Himalayan Mountains, whose snow-capped peaks form a stunning backdrop to the city.

Our Business placements are in the busy capital city of Kathmandu. It’s a thriving Asian city with a dynamic business culture and cafe culture. 

You will have endless opportunities for adventure, such as trekking through the mountains, mountain biking, paragliding and white water rafting.

During summer months (June – September) Nepal can get quite hot and humid, and there can be heavy rains in the afternoons. In the winter there will be much more blue sky & sunshine with daytime temperatures around 20 degrees and evenings just above freezing.
