Hey, I'm a first year Comp Sci.

By work placement do you mean year in industry/internships? Or do you mean after you graduate?

In terms of years in industry, these are currently offered, however I don't think they're as pushed/have as much uptake as other unis: https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/dcs/te.../intercalated/ Though sometimes if you get a good internship they'll invite you back.

Internships are definitely pushed, I've personally got an internship lined up this summer and there has been lots of support to help me get this with frequent visits from companies etc. Internships have the advantage that they look really good for experience, but don't take a full year out.

I'm talking about the intercalated year, which I would like to take if I study at Warwick. However, I don't want to come back from an intercalated year where almost everyone else has already graduated if they are doing a 3-year course. So I was wondering what percentage of students actually go onto one.

Not too sure on that one I'm afraid, I think the best thing would be to get in touch with the department: [email protected] they will have the info, I do believe that less than 50% go on a year in industry, though over 50% do internships.
