How much do placements cost?
Our placement costs are simple and transparent, so you know exactly what you will pay from the outset and can budget accordingly - there are no hidden fees or charges! A 2-week placement costs £1,395 and each additional week thereafter costs £100. A reduced weekly cost may be offered for 6+ week placements.
Your placement cost includes:
✔ Return flights
✔ Airport transfers
✔ Placement transport
✔ Comprehensive travel, medical, medical malpractice and professional indemnity insurance cover (as required)
✔ Quality placement supervision from our British professional volunteers and local staff
As a charity, K4C does not make any profit from running student placements and we keep the costs as low as possible. From the amount you pay to us:
✔ We sustainably invest a minimum of £150 (along with any other surplus generated) into the facilities and organisations that host you, for example, by providing essential equipment, infrastructure and training for local staff
✔ £200 supports our professional volunteers who (as well as providing you with excellent supervision) have a hugely positive impact on local facilities and their staff and patients by providing training, mentoring and co-working
By completing a placement with us, you are directly supporting some of the most vulnerable and disempowered communities in the world!
We will ask you to transfer a deposit of £395 as soon as possible to enable us to book your flights. The remainder of your placement costs can be paid later, although the full payment must be received no later than 1 month before you fly.
We warmly welcome students from outside of the UK - please contact us for more information on costs.
