    Hi guys, I'm considering applying for the course above and was wondering if anybody had any advice regarding mentioning the year abroad in my personal statement. They expect that 'Candidates should also show interest in and enthusiasm for the year abroad aspect of the programme' but none of my other courses entail a year abroad so idk how to mention it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I wouldn't mention it as a year abroad per se but more in terms of wanting to spend some time abroad in the future and why you're interested in it. Other unis will then see it as future or summer plans.
