Hi @student12123

Certain international modules done on this course will help you within areas of future practice. However, undergraduate modules rarely are deemed as being particularly beneficial when it comes to applications etc. as the knowledge will always be tailored to the course you are studying at that time rather than the practice you may be intending to pursue. Put simply, there will be some benefits to doing these modules but I wouldn't just do these modules in lieu of other experiences such as vacation schemes, mooting etc.

I hope this helps and good luck! 🙂
