8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?

At first I found it chaotic, and it felt like a last minute setup - but as the weeks progressed I started seeing the plan. Suggestion for improvement: Have the tasks and goals written out, as interns may be unfamiliar with the terminology and software.
