4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

Very good balance or work and social life. Never had to stay behind later than usual except on very few occasions. Never felt overwhelmed by the amount of work or pressure, but always had something to do or learn. Overall a very good balance of work load and time invested.

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

Worked on real products that were being deployed showing the level of responsibility given. Also not babysitter throughout the internship so I was responsible for my own time and getting work done accordingly. All contributions in team meetings also taken into consideration so a certain level of responsibility in the team.

Learnt more in this 10 weeks than my last year of uni. Some modules next year I've probably already learned. Also the time management and software dev life cycle knowledge ive gained will no doubt help not only in the rest of uni, but in the rest of working life in general.

Social

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

Very good social scene, everyone very friendly and always want a chat. Loads of intern social nights and bbq lunches so everyone made really good friends with each other. Very good social scene with other colleagues aswell, even playing mini golf and going for drinks after work with them. So overall near perfect.

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

Did not live in the area so cannot comment on that. Socialising not too expensive, local wetherspoons always helps and the clubs were not too pricey either. Bbqs and meals out were not too pricey either so socialising as a whole was cheap and fun. Heard from others that there is cheap accomodation here aswell.

7/10

14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?

Loads of clubs and bars, always a night out every Friday and Saturday so plenty of time to explore them all. Clubs have good atmospheres with relatively cheap drinks so overall the nightlife was really good. Also loads of kebab shops so always places open to get some food early in the morning.

8/10

15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?

Loads if BRGs (societies) to get involved in and countless other society like groups such as football, rugby... . Also lots of charity opportunities aswell such as the corporate responsibility day we took part in for the RSPB. Other charities always come into the atrium and you can get involved with them there.
