Sandwich degree

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A sandwich degree is a course specific to the United Kingdom, a four-year undergraduate course – if it's part of a bachelor's degree – or – if it's part of a master's degree – a five-year postgraduate course in which students undertake a placement year, or internship in industry; normally after the second year at university. During 1989 in the United Kingdom, about 20% of the students in higher education were on sandwich courses,[1] however more recently they have been in decline. In 2002 they were at 9.5 percent and 2010 7.2.[2]
