What do our past students say?

Doing my student placement at Gateway Health was such a positive and memorable experience for me. I immediately felt welcomed and accepted, and I learned so much from everyone on the team. My placement made it clear to me that Gateway Health was exactly where I wanted to stay, and now that I work here I couldn’t be happier!

Information for education providers

Education providers can make enquiries and requests for student placement via the online Placeright portal or by emailing

It is Gateway Health’s policy to charge fees for student placements. These fees vary depending on the discipline involved.

Fees need to be paid by the education provider as we cannot enter into a legal placement agreement directly with the student.

Please note that an offer of placement will depend on our capacity, and the student successfully completing an interview with the relevant team leader.

We are not able to accommodate work experience requests.
