2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

You are given a real job and treated like an employee rather than 'just an intern'.


3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

You get quarterly reviews throughout the intern programme and day to day contact with your line manager.


4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

Fairly busy in the first half of the year, but an increased workload in the second half of the year. However, it was never too much as they are aware that it is a learning process for the intern.


5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

I was given a lot more responsibility then I could of imagined, you are a valued member of the team during the year.


6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

I haven't returned to my 3rd year of uni yet, however I know the year out will have dramatically improved my work ethic. You gain skills in your placement year that you just can't learn from your years at university. You have to be in a practical environment.

There are quarterly reviews specifically for the intern programme.

Opportunity to work part time in 3rd year as well as a graduate scheme.

A good social scene among the interns as well as the interns and graduates on sites.


13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?

£550 per month for a 2 bed apartment in the centre of town. Very reasonable prices around.


14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?

Good if you went into the city.


15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?

A couple - varies site to site. Definitely room for improvement at my site.
