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

I enjoyed the structure of the internship and the programme. I felt I was assigned the best department for me and I feel I excelled in my job role. However, I feel at times the scheme could have been more organised. We had our induction training 3 months after we had started. I feel it would have been more beneficial in the begin of our placement.
