    Hi, I've received an offer from the university of warwick to study Accounting and Finance in Sept 2017 (i deferred my entry). But before i accept this offer, I just have a few doubts in my mind first that I would like to clarify.

    1. I notice that the university does not offer A&F with a year in Industry. However, if i wanted and requested, will I be able to take an optional full year off (e.g. in my 3rd year) just for work placement? Because not having this option is currently a push factor as to why i have not accepted the offer, as other universities offer a year in industry as part of their A&F course, but warwick does not. Also, what do employers think about students who do a year in industry in their course and how useful is it doing a year in industry in terms of getting a job after I graduate or even getting a contract from the company during the year in industry for a job after I graduate?

    2. If I do end up accepting my warwick offer now, when do I apply for accommodation for my 2017 entry? Do I apply this year at the end of may, or do i book my accommodation next year may/june when it opens again for people who have accepted in the next cycle.

    Thanks for all your answers!

    Hi, I'm a current first year engineer at Warwick.

    I can't answer specifically for A&F but I know that although they don't offer a course with a year in industry for engineering if you request to do one the department are happy with it. So I'd guess it's similar for you. Hopefully someone who knows more will comment.

    You'll apply for accommodation in the next cycle and don't get any priority over the people who get their offers next year

    Hope I was some help, feel free to ask me any other questions you have
