    yeah i got an offer from aston for economics, its a sandwich year. what i wanted to know was

    does the uni usually help in finding work placements or is it down to the individual?


    if i couldnt find a work placenment could i just cancel the sandwich year and finish my 3rd year a year early?


    Can't answer the second question with any authority but the university does help in finding placements, as I have a friend who is doing a sandwich year next year and all he really had to do was do well in his mock exams and be recommended by his tutor .

    If the course is available without a sandwich year then I can't see why they wouldn't let you miss it out if you couldn't find a placement (though that would probably be unlikely) but if there isn't a non-placement version available, then it may be more complicated, as the industrial experience may be essential to later elements of the course like, for example, a dissertation.
