    My son, if he goes to Ulster University Jordanstown Campus next year to enter year two directly of the Health and Social Care Policy degree will have a six week work placement at the end of year two. The website says, " A key feature of the course is a six week block work-based placement at the end of year two ". Then it says "Opportunities to study abroad include the Erasmus Scheme and International Student Exchange Programme". Sorry if this is a really stupid question, but does everyone on that course take part in Erasmus or do students not have to do if they don't want to?

    Without knowing the exact details, this sounds like two different things. The placement is an integral part of the course, whereas Erasmus is allowed further opportunities for foreign study if desired.

    Thanks. Yes, it says the placement of 6 weeks is compulsory. But I didn't know if Erasmus was compulsory as well.
