This article explores the experiences of undergraduate healthcare students within interprofessional education (IPE) using a qualitative research study. The motive to undertake this study was as a result of mixed evaluations of IPE sessions. The study aimed to analyse student experiences of IPE, and as a result provide greater insight into how this type of education could be enhanced. Participants were selected through voluntary recruitment and data were collected using a focus group involving 12 participants who responded. Data analysis identified two key themes highlighting the barriers to engagement in IPE and factors that enable participants to engage. The study provides guidance for further developments and improvements when designing and delivering IPE.
