    4/5

    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • Yeah- lots of social events, pub after work, nice + fun atmosphere. Everyone here is also young so it's never old, boring or stuffy.

  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • I'm from London so didn't notice cost different but it's expensive!

    5/5

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

    4/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • I didn't personally, but I think there were some.
