My Work Experience Report by Desireé Schulz


I spent 4 weeks in Leicester with Michelle… or should I say 4 days? Because it really felt like that. These four weeks were among the best of all my training to become a nurse.

I learned and enjoyed so much while working in another country. Everyone in the hospital was so nice and especially the family we stayed with. It was really interesting to see how people work in a hospital in another country. I had a really nice time working at Spire Hospital Leicester and I also made some new friends.

But we didn’t just work during these 4 weeks. We also had the chance to travel around the country and see a lot of cities. It was amazing and we had so much fun! We’ve been to London, Leicester (obviously haha), Oxford, Manchester, Leeds, Bournemouth and Nottingham. We really enjoyed working in the hospital and being able to travel around on our days off. It was the perfect mixture.

So when we had to leave, after four weeks, it was really sad. Even though we were only there for a month we really felt like a part of the family and also like a part of the nursing staff. Everyone in England is so nice and lovely; it was one of the biggest differences we noticed – you don’t often find this same open-heartedness in Germany. All in all, I have nothing negative to say about our month in England. All I can say to you is this: If you have the chance to visit England for 4 weeks and work in a Hospital, DO IT! You won’t regret it, trust me. 🙂
