    They want to see a variety in the NHS and other UK healthcare settings though some abroad won't hurt.

    If you are an international applicant they may forgive it if you have a range of experiences and a good understanding of how the NHS works. Otherwise I wouldn't advise it.

    It depends on what you have learnt. As @alleycat393 said if work experience abroad is the only thing you can get, that's fine. If you are choosing not to go for local work experience when you can get it, that's less ideal.

    Hi there!

    To add to what others on this thread have said, we'd recommend getting some work experience in a UK hospital or GP if you can.

    You can see exactly the kinds of medical work experience medical schools look for on our Medical School Work Experience Requirements page.

    Hope this helps!
