    I've been looking into Southampton's placement year, and birminghams internship module, and I can't decide which to go for ( accounting and finance)

    Reviewing southamptons course, the average number of people which get 2:1 is 55% compared to Birmingham has 75%.

    I've read many reviews and both unis has its share of good and bad, but southampton seems to have more bad than good.

    I just don't know what to do. A placement year seem more valuable than an internship, but the reviews and stats are putting me off.

    which one would be better in terms of employability?
    Thanks

    You'll get a load of conflicting stats if you look at different sources so I wouldn't worry about them too much. Work out where grads end up to check employability. Where will the placement be vs where will the internship be i.e in a company/uni what?
