Benefits of completing a placement year

Placement years can also be referred to as a ‘sandwich year’, ‘work placement’ or a ‘year in industry’.
If you apply for a student loan, you will still need to apply for the loan in your placement year, or you will be required to pay the tuition fee yourself.
