    5/5

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • It can vary. I never have NOTHING to do, which I like because otherwise I could be bored. But there are times when we have a lot of projects on and deadlines to meet where you just have to put your headphones and get on with your work.

    4/5

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • The perfect balance! I have enough responsibility regarding handling projects, but not enough to the point I could ruin it! There are times when my supervisor goes on holiday so I have a lot more, but I enjoyed being able to step up and show what I am capable of.

    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?

    5/5

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

    5/5
