    4/5

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • We had 2 weeks at the start of the internship to learn various programming languages etc. Then we were constantly guided throughout the internship via code reviews, and daily stand ups.

    5/5

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • Yes, there was plenty of work to do.

    5/5

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • I think it varies as to which project there are lying about which are suitable for interns. Ours was an in-house program, so ultimately responsibility on the project falls above us - if a mistake is made, it should be caught in coder review.

    4/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • Maths degree, so a programming internship will not be relevant at all towards my studies, however if I go into a programming job, the experience will be really useful.

    5/5
