4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

It really depends on the type of job that I'm doing. If I have a deadline, of course I'm busier.

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

Not having a lot of experience, I think that the level of responsibility that was given to me is right, i.e. I can work on my own but I can always refer to my manager if something is not clear.

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

I improved both technical and soft skills. I can manage better the pressure of deadlines, and I improved my team working skills.

Higher than I expected.

It really depends on the city where you live. I live in Crawley, and it is not a nice place to live. I would suggest to live in Brighton.
