This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear King’s College London,

I would like to know the process for assigning hospital placements for MBBS students. How does the allocation process take place and what factors are taken into account or is it jsut a random allocation.
Also does your stage 2 placement have any bearing on your year 4-5 placements i.e. if you were assigned Guy's Hospital, St Thomas' Hospital are you more likely to be assigned further away in years 4 and 5 (and vice versa).

Yours faithfully,

A
