    Thank you! That helps a lot

    No, just work experience. You can put it on your CV when applying to jobs/uni to show interviewers what kind of skills you have, so organisation, etc. If you choose a work experience in the field you hope to go into, it also demonstrates your passion for the subject and that you went the extra mile, which interviewers like to see. It gives you a taste of the working environment and can help you decide if that is the career you want to pursue. There are lots of benefits!
