Can I switch to a placement year on the same course?

Hi I completed my first year in a course for Business Management. And I have a question on whether or not I can switch into a placement year for my course before second year starts. And If my university would allow this?
Yeah you would just have to tell your uni before uni starts as the placement year is usually optional.

Hi thanks for your reply. Would they allow me even if the course starts in early october as long as I contact them ASAP? such as tomorrow?

Hi @Ozan232

I am Millie, a recent graduate in Business Management with a placement year.
In my experience, the university within our first week of second year asked if anyone would be interested in swapping to either a placement year or international year as they would have to undertake certain modules to be eligable for this. Obviously the process may be different within different universities but the sooner you ask the better :smile:

Best of luck,

Hi, Ive received an offer from Westminster uni for the Bsc finance course which is the standard 3 years of study. I’m in year 13 and have to apply for student finance by may 19th. I changed my mind and want to do a placement year during the 2nd and 3rd year of uni. On ucas it says bsc finance 3 years and bsc finance 4 years with placement year and I chose the 3 years. I emailed the university but they haven’t replied or will I have the option on year 1 to ask to do a placement year even though I did not apply for it on ucas ?
You will have to contact that Uni - no-one here can help you do this.

I did but no reply. Will it take long? I heard some people never got a response till a month. I have my student finance deadline in less than a month. Also, in the second year or the first year, is there a chance that the uni will allow me to do a placement year if I ask even though I’m studying for 3 years not 4?

Pick up the phone.
It's not unusual for uni's to take 10 working days or more to respond to email queries. As above, following up with a phone call will often prompt then to reply.
