CHIPS elective Preparation evening

Elective preparation evening

Hi everyone!!! CHIPS is planning to host an electives experience evening on 25th January 2019 (6-8pm), location to be confirmed. This will hopefully clarify some questions you might have/ might not realise you have about the nitty-gritty of planning and applying for electives. We will be inviting 5th year students, F1s and even F2s to come and tell us about their experience applying and doing their electives abroad. You will be able to talk to them in person and be better informed about your options and expectations.

This electives night will be a FREE event, as it is one of the main focuses of CHIPS to facilitate an international experience for everyone.

To make the evening this a better experience, we would like to know beforehand which countries people have thought about applying to for electives and would like some advise/ help. As much as possible, we aim to have people there who either have applied/ have completed electives in those countries. To let us know where you are planning to go for electives, please complete the survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/8X2YD68before 6.1.2018.

We are aware that some students are on away placements then. We are organising it early as the application deadline for applying for electives in some competitive countries is a year in advance!!!

We would also like to know if there are people who would like the main talks to be broadcasted on Facebook live, with a platform for those who cannot attend to ask questions to the relevant people(s). If you would like that, be sure to also let us know on our survey.
