    Hi, I am currently in the process of starting to plan my elective placement in Ghana, yay!!
    However my uni basically want a kidney before they will let me go, even though its completely self funded but hey ho. So my question is;

    Anyone that has completed an elective abroad, do you have any advice on how im going to sell this to my uni? They want a list of reasons why I want to go and what learning outcomes and objectives I will achieve

    Any suggestions will be massively appreciated xx

    I know this is about nursing but electives abroad are more common among medics - you might get more advice if you cross post this in the Current Medical Students and Doctors forum and ask there for advice/experience
