Hi Sue!


tbh I think you would be extremely lucky to find anywhere.....my niece wanted to do the same a couple of years ago we called Every single health dept in every state and got the same answer everywhere. Apparently there are not even enough placements in the country for the Australian students :no:

Hi Sue,


I did my elective placement at a private hospital in Melbourne back in 2009. When I went back to work at the same hospital in 2012 they were still accommodating UK students however I'm not sure if the hospital only had an agreement with the Uni I went to. I know it's not Brisbane but worth a try. It took me some time to secure a placement and I had to email lots of hospitals before I was successful so I would say for your niece to email every single hospital she can find on the Internet I'm sure something will come good. Also my friends found a placement in Sydney at the same time as I. Good luck
