    Hi,

    I am an international student who has recently graduated with an IB diploma (November 2016 session). I have just received emails from two universities requesting for further information on my activities since completing my studies. Truthfully, I am not planning to do any internship/work during my long break. I just want to enjoy this break by travelling, learning a new languange, going to the gym and possibly learning the basics of FOREX trading. Do you guys think that my lack of internship/work would hurt my chance of getting offers from the universities? Btw I am applying for Actuarial Science degree.

    Thanks!

    Can't help with an actual answer I'm afraid but if you ever need help with Forex, hit me up. I've been learning for three years now and just accepted into a finance and investment degree.
