3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

My supervisor was incredibly supportive, and was more than happy to help when I asked.
Also, the initial two weeks of the placement, before being assigned a team, was dedicated to an intensive training course in C++, which was very helpful.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

I always had a task to work on - most of the internship was based around one major project, with a number of smaller tasks throughout. I was nearly always busy, but the pace was good.

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

I felt I was given a good amount of responsibility, with tasks that reflected my level of experience, and I was mostly left to work independently on them. The main project I was given to work on required me to work directly with the code and allowed me to add value to the software.

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

I have developed my C++ skills, which has been incredibly helpful as a number of my final year modules are C/C++ based, as well as more general skills such communication and analytical thinking.

9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

Two weeks paid training before being put in a team. Following this, we were assigned a personal supervisor to provide guidance and was always available to help. A lot of time was taken to get us to a level at which we could contribute, and really get a lot out of time there.
