    Most medical schools if not all offer electives which you can do in a different country. Not started medicine yet so maybe somebody else can tell you more on this.

    All med schools will have an elective period, which will be either in your penultimate or final year. This is a period where you can do a placement in anything you want almost anywhere in the world. There are some important differences between med schools though: length can vary (I'm putting 6-11 weeks as the range but don't know that for sure), the timing can vary (some have it immediately before your final exams so you just spend your time revising, others have it after your final exams so you... don't ) and the requirements whilst out there can vary e.g. you might be required to complete a project or similar.

    I don't believe there is any UK uni that offers a longer period abroad.

    My med school (Oxford) did have additional opportunities to go abroad as part of special study modules or as part of some of your 5th year placements in paeds or obs and gynae. These were shorter and had more requirements than the elective though.

    What are you interested in doing?
