    Is it a good idea to choose that as it includes the study abroad or stick with Management with the year in industry. I don't think I'm that fussed on the Marketing bit as I think there are optional modules relating to marketing for the International Management?

    I wanted to transfer to Intl Management as well (I'm from IBFE) but I eventually came to the conclusion that a year in industry would be better (for the experience you get and that it helps you secure a job more easily after you graduate..and never read that you have to complete it in the UK) But, I'm an EU Student..so I'm already going to be studying abroad, so I don't know if this helps you )

    I think they're pretty similar, apart from some modules, so it's up to you if you prefer a year of studying abroad or one working in the industry

    Yeah I understand how doing a placement will be much easier in finding employment after, but recently the thought of studying abroad seems attracting. Only difference being, less modules on marketing and not being in year in industry. Not sure if I will regret changing my course later

    I haven't emailed them yet, I'm still not 100% sure if I really want to compromise the year in industry for a study abroad. I think the year in industry is better in the long term but studying abroad is also nice. If anyone knows any people doing well after a study abroad compared to a year in industry

    I'm sure this has been answered somewhere, but when do we get to actually register for classes? I know it's still early. I'm just curious.

    Normally once you're there - if you've got optional modules they'll want to talk you through your choices (and how to battle your way through the software), and if you haven't they'll probably just give you a timetable when you get there.

    It is sometimes possible to do a work placement abroad - if it is possible on your course, it might be a suitable compromise.

    What's your view on a work placement and a study abroad, experience/benefits/cons/employability?

    What's your view on a work placement and a study abroad, experience/benefits/cons/employability?
    From an employability point of view, the work placement is better. Study abroad isn't useless - many employers value people with experience of living and working abroad - but industrial experience will generally give you more to talk about. I believe that about a third of all graduates get their first job with a company they've already worked for, and it's not uncommon to end up working where you did your placement, if you impress.

    On the other hand, you'll probably have more fun studying abroad.

    Have you thought about taking a pre uni gap year and going traveling as an alternative to study abroad? I did it and it was a great experience that vastly helped my employability (transferable skills from bar work, plus evidence of having lived and worked abroad) and it was really enjoyable, whilst part fuelling and part satisfying my wanderlust! The other alternative is to do a masters abroad, if you can afford it.
