    I have an unconditional offer to study Politics and International Relations (with year in Japan) from September. (I'm a mature student so already have my A-levels..)

    I know it's a while off but I was wondering with the year abroad how it works exactly, do you get to choose which university/place you go to or are you assigned a place?

    Also if anyone has done a year abroad in Japan or elsewhere really what tips do you have or how did you find it?

    Thanks

    I am a current student studying pol IR and will be going on my year abroad next year (finland) here is how it works:

    first year you must get 60% overall and attend the year abroad breifings towards the end of the year
    second year: in november you will fill a form out with your choices of university
    in december you will receive a email saying where you have been allocated, almost always first choice

    then you fill out the forms the university gives you and off you go

    Where you get assigned depends on how many people want to go to each university, how you've ranked your choices and your marks. If you click here and scroll down to "How places get allocated" and then the box "if your degree gives you a choice of destination", it'll explain how it works.
