Social

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?

Unfortunately, we were not able to work at the office. However, after taking part in the assessment centre, I stopped for a salad and the cost of the meal was pretty low.

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

Unfortunately, I did not have a chance to experience it, but from what I have understood from my friends, the nightlife in Liverpool Street is pretty amazing. Also, Shoreditch is nearby, which has a lot of restaurants/pubs.

10/10

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

I would say yes, considering the number of events that UBS has organised for the interns.
