    3/5

  • 8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  • It was very well organised, but there were some small problems in the beginning - I guess even well organised internships cannot be perfect.

    2/5

  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • There was a two week training course at the beginning, which was useful and felt like a big investment. Afterwards, while I was part of a team, my colleagues regularly helped me when I needed it.

    The Culture

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

  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • The cost of living and socialising in Birmingham wasn't too bad.

    4/5

  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • I didn't really go out that much, but the few times I did, it was pretty decent.

    3/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • There were groups of people that gathered together to go out after work or play football, so I would say so.
