    Check the finances too. Some programs pay fees + maintainance. Others fees only.

    I want to study in a Canadian University during my second year, which you can do at York although places are extremely competitive.

    I get to do a year in France or Belgium if I continue with my French, Spain or Argentina if I pick up Spanish again or Italy if I start Italian. There's also a chance to go to the USA, Canada or Australia but that's extremely competitive.

    I'm gonna be spending a year in France as part of my degree. My degree is Psychology with French and apparently I can't do a year of my psychology course in France so I'm going to be doing assistant teaching.
    It's a really exciting- different country, different language, different people and different job. Obviously, the idea does make me rather nervous, but I hope I shall come away from it with more confidence and independence and fluent French.

    What university is that you're studying in? Have you heard whether the past participants in this programme remained happy after the experience (pay-wise, experience-wise..)?

    I'm studying Computer Science at Kent. Because they're an authorised Java Campus, Sun usually send about 20 students from the course per year. The places are competitive but the lecturer said I had a good chance of getting a place because they're trying to get more females onto the placement scheme.

    I spoke to one of the students who had worked for Sun in Cali on his placement when I went for the open day - he said it was the best year of his life! Sun pay for the accommodation and flights as well. The job they gave him was a really important one as well, I can't remember exactly what it was but he said by the end of it he was leading team meetings etc. Not sure about the pay, can't remember if it was unpaid because Sun paid all expenses etc.
