The minimum number of weeks for an Elective placement is 4 weeks and the maximum length for an Elective placement is 10 weeks. Once you have been offered a place you cannot change the dates so before applying please check with your university that the dates you wish to take part in the programme fit in with the course timetable at your home university and that the head of your medical school is aware of the dates you plan to come to Oxford. You must attend for the duration of your Elective placement. If you are planning on spending some of your time in England/Europe as holiday, this must be taken before or after your placement NOT during your Elective placement.
