    I want to do a international business degree at university however I was wondering if there were any work experience programs related to this, like business or even going abroad.
    I have all the requirements.
    I am 16 years old,.

    Well,i think it might be beneficial to work in banks.

    I am studying A2,and at first i wanted to do optometry,so i did one placement there.However,i suddenly changed my mind,and now am applying to do an international business degree.So i had to describe my optom work experience in a business way.

    So i guess working in a business,which can even be a charity shop all provides you with experience in a way.I also did a placement in Barclays bank,and it was beneficial.

    And i am not sure if 16 year olds can do summer schools at uni,but its worth researching.
