    I have two offers:

    University or Birmingham- accounting and finance
    or
    University of Southampton- with placememt year

    Although Birmingham is the better university for A&F, Southampton has a placement year?

    I hope to get into one of the big 4 graduate schemes after.
    would a placement year or internship be more beneficial?

    thanks

    A friend doing A&F did his placement year in America - something to think about.

    Although I don't know much about A&F, as a maths student who did a placement year I thought it was really good to get stuck into some long-term projects, but if you can get an internship then I can't imagine the two experiences being that different in terms of value.
