Yes, they have organized mid-intern social as well as end of intern social with free tab. Everyone enjoyed themselves and having a great time.

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

Around 2000 pounds for renting for 10 weeks. I normally do not make food so about 400 pounds on other living costs. Socialising is a bit more expensive since the average cost I have for every social is about 40 pounds, dinner or bar. However compare with the salary I would say it balanced and able to put some money aside.
