3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the virtual experience?

This section of the comment has been removed by a member of the RateMyPlacement Team because it did not meet our site terms and conditions the Programme leaders were extremely supportive and were always there if we needed any help with the systems or even if we wanted to call about our projects. Also, the project leaders provided great guidance by arranging virtual meetings with all different colleagues around the business for them to share their experiences and expertise so that we could gain as much insight as possible during our 6 week virtual internship!
