Accomodation

We will cover your flight costs** and provide you with fully furnished accommodation based on your work location in EPUT’s area free of charge for the first 12 weeks. You can opt in to extend your stay in the same accommodation for a further 12 weeks at your own expense.

Your first two weeks

Your first 12 weeks and beyond
In the long term, we will guide and support you to pass the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) to become a registered nurse and provide guiding information to answer your questions on how to find your own accommodation.

You will be paid as a Healthcare Assistant while you are training for the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE).
