This study explored what students on a rural immersion IPE programme reported regarding shared living arrangements.  A qualitative survey question querying the most valuable aspects of the programme found many students highlighted the value of shared accommodation. There were five themes in the focus group data: Having fun together (yet learning); Formal learning through informal social interaction; Learning conflict resolution skills; It only goes so far: limitations to shared living arrangements; Not all living together has a negative impact.
