Work experience

March 2020 - COVID-19 update

Work experience placements - important

As employers providing frontline health and care, Oxford University Hospitals has a duty to protect our staff, patients, visitors and their families.

This includes taking reasonable steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

As a result, we have taken the decision to suspend all non-essential student placements at present.

Please rest assured that we will seek to reschedule placements for students at a later date and when it is appropriate for activity to be reintroduced.

We will update this web page when this becomes possible.

Please do not contact our clinical teams with work experience enquiries in the meantime, in order to reduce pressure on our staff.

This decision has not been made lightly, and we are grateful for your understanding.

An Introduction to the NHS - summer programme 2020

If you had applied for this programme, please do apply again when we are next able to run it.

We will contact individual students who have placements registered with this office, as well as consultants and departments who regularly offer places.
