Where would you like to study?
Sandwich year, foundation year, year abroad
As part of an undergraduate degree, a sandwich year or course includes the opportunity to undertake a work placement or internship in a relevant company or organisation.
Some courses at some UK institutions include the opportunity for students to take a year abroad as part of their studies (for example, a student taking a language degree might study in the country where the language is spoken).
A foundation course is a preparatory course for students who want to specialise in a particular area. Some first degree courses will require students to take a foundation year in advance of their degree, this is particularly common in the field of art and design.
