I'm an international student who got an offer for Msc Data Science and Statistics with a placement year at the University of Bath. I'm wondering if there is any point in doing placement year as I heard it pays lesser and you have to find the placement. So couldn't i just find a job and get paid normally instead of a placement? What do you guys think about Masters placement year.

Hi! Ganj0

The placement year might be part of your course, which is why it is important to speak to someone about this. I would speak to your university and course leader about this. If it is a choice then choose what you feel is best for you and what you would enjoy more, but your university should be able to help you with this.

I hope this helps!

Thats cool, I've got an offer from Bath and Cardiff and I'm waiting for a reply from Glasglow, but got rejected from Leeds. Did you get any reply's? As far as I've heard, placements in UK are all found by the student themselves as opposed to us in India where companies visit us. But most people say placement years are still great but they are talking about bachelor placement year which is in between their studies. I wanted to know if there is any point in doing placement for postgraduation.

I have sent a message asking for some details related to the placement year but I haven't gotten a reply so far. I was hoping I'd get a reply from someone who has done a PG placement year or planning to do one.

i wish i could help you with that... I am equally confused about the placements and jobs.. makes me wonder it is easy in India with the companies visiting our colleges.
I got an offer from Glasgow and Sheffield.. waiting for the others now.

I'm under the same dilemma. I'm currently holding an offer from Liverpool for MSc Data Science and AI with placement year and I'm not sure if I should take it

The University will normally present to you those companies that offer placements. If you don’t like those offers just don’t do it. Do your normal studies without a placement year.
