Hi everyone,

I'll hopefully be pursuing Economics at Bath this September, and my degree's 4 years long, with the third year being a year in industry/study abroad. I've read online that usually that Spring Weeks are for 1st year students of a 3 year long degree, or 2nd year students of a 4 year long degree, but as my 4 year long degree includes one year abroad which doesn't really count, should I apply for the 2021 Spring Weeks? Would this help me in securing internships for my third year?

Appreciate any help!

Thanks!

Spring weeks are for those in 1/3 or 2/4 year courses because they typically lead to Summer internships, if you applied this year and fingers cross got a summer internship and completed that you wouldnt graduate for another 2 years meaning they couldnt offer you a place on the grad program. So it really all comes down to timing.

I'd recommend using this year to get a good grade at uni, attend loads of insight days to learn about which divisions or roles you think you'll like and get experience with societies or other extra curriculars at uni to smash spring applications which open around this time next year (Summer of 2021)

Hi, thanks so much for your insight. My 3rd year includes 6 months study abroad and 6 months industrial placement. Wouldn't a 1st year Spring Week be beneficial in that case?

Thanks

I agree that a Spring would be beneficial but your chances of getting one in the first year of a 4 year course are low. You could still do the Spring in Year 2 (Still available to you because you're on a 4 year course) and apply to industrial placements for year 3 towards the end of year 2
