Is a year out on placement worth it? Watch

Report Thread starter 3 years ago
Placement is optional for my degree. I have already secured a summer internship. So I was thinking whether a placement is worth it. I want to train for chartered accountancy which requires 3 years of training experience. But the thing is 'year out on placement' doesn't count as a training experience at all. So I think it will just be me wasting my time.

Anyone has been in same situation as me? I am totally in dilemma right now. I think placement is great for CV, but is it REALLY worth it? Maybe just normal route of graduate scheme is much better.?
