Social

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

A lot of effort made from other interns to get to know each other. Also graduates offering to get us involved in football and organising socials so there was always something going on/to look forward to.

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

Lived at home in altrincham so no cost there. Socialising reasonably expensive but normal for a main city centre.

Loads to do late at night but also more chilled things earlier on.

Football with grads, drinks and team lunches occasionally represents a decent amount of opportunity.
