I was wondering if anyone could tell me if there are a limited number of university places available in total for the year abroad? I imagine there is and that it probably isn't a very large number. Out of studying abroad or working abroad, which is usually the more popular option? I think I will definitely want to study for the whole year at a uni, I don't really like the idea of having to find a work placement but what would happen if they didn't have enough places for everyone that wanted to study? Surely you wouldn't be forced into having to find work?
I don't know if the language makes a difference, but in my case it is french.

Not many people doing one language do one term at university and a job, or at least I don't think so. For some people I know, it ended up that they looked for jobs, couldn't find anything, so went to university instead. This year I think quite a few people went to study, but remember you can also be a language assistant if that appeals!
Some universities are very popular and have a limited amount of spaces, so you just need to get all your forms and applications done early and there shouldn't be too much of a problem getting into the place you want.

Yeah, I know some unis have limited places. Do you know if they are allocated on a first come, first served basis or if it's done randomly?

I'm pretty sure it's first come first served, but then again I didn't go to university so am not 100% sure.
