Hello,

I know that this is a very generalised question as every university is different and offers courses either

Bachelors with year in industry
Bachelors with year abroad etc

I was wondering if it is possible to do a course with a year in industry and also spend a year abroad at another university?

Perhaps this year abroad would only be for a semester or so but I was wondering if anybody with any experience could explain this to me.

Could you not to the year in industry abroad? That’s what I did. I wanted to do a year abroad in America but I also wanted to do a year in industry. So I did a year long internship at a law firm in America. I’d suggest doing something similar? I emailed my year in industry convenor and asked her and gave her a good reason why she should let me.

That's a really good idea; I'm assuming from what you are saying then is that universities usually want you to do placements in the UK?

Well mine did yes - they expected us to do a placement in the UK. I’m not sure that your uni is the same, but if it is then I would just ask them and explain why it’s going to be valuable to you

I can't see why not! A year in industry is usually sandwiched in between 2nd and 3rd year, and you can usually go abroad for a semester (but sometimes a full year) in 2nd year. The only thing is it might be harder to secure a placement when you're not at your home university, since they'll usually help you look for one

I did an exchange semester at a Canadian uni and looking back it was the best months of my life. But that said one semester was enough for me. Doing a whole year would be like going on a 2 week holiday for a month.
