I really enjoyed my internship. I found the work varied and challenging, my team allowed me to get involved with a number of projects and were extremely supportive whenever I didn't completely understand the work I was asked to complete.

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

My skills were hugely developed within tax, prior to the internship I had little knowledge of the processes I would be helping out with day to day and now I feel confident I could assist throughout the process.
