  • 4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • I was able to apply what I have learnt from my previous studies and experiences, work on real projects and explore/ learn new things. I feel that I have been able to develop personally and improve my skill set and commercial awareness. I've also been able to meet some great professionals and learn from their experience/advice. It has also been useful for me to be able to discuss my dissertation proposal with my team (as the question/ topic is relevant to their work). Overall the experience has been extremely beneficial.

    The Company

  • 5. How well structured was the insight?
  • The insight was very well structured. It has been absolutely brilliant to get into an office for work experience when most other employers have cancelled/ gone virtual. Savills' have done a fantastic job of preparing the office for Covid-19 and creating a safe and pleasant environment.
