    Hey all

    Quick question I've got.

    Im looking at a 3 month summer placement - do I need to notify my university that I am doing this placement? Or does it count as my 'summer' and therefore because it is not a experience for a year theres no need to tell them about the work experience I will be doing?

    Im aware that part-fees are paid to the uni when you do a sandwich year... just want to be sure before I apply.

    (Summer placement starts and more importantly finishes about 3 weeks before the next academic year begins.)

    Thanks all

    Well will it contribute towards your final degree mark?

    Not sure... I wouldn't of thought so.

    I'd imagine a year would contribute towards my degree due to the length and taking time 'out' of uni, where as the summer internship is summer thus not effecting uni? But, I'm not sure....

    Your university doesn't need to know what you get up to over the summer. :wink2:

    You shouldn't have to tell them anything unless you miss registration because of the internship, which won't happen.

    Yep, if it doesn't count towards your degree mark (unlike year in industry), they don't need to know at all
