8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?

I think that overall my placement experience was very well organised, from the offer holding period that my HR contacts would check in with me to the induction week which was designed to help us settle in our roles. Not to mention I enjoyed the actual work and loved my teams so much!

The Culture

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

We had our interns Christmas party which was fabulous, and our regular socials, which were just very nice to get together with everyone and catch up!
5 /5

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

As I was working in London, I would say it may cost higher than other cities. I didn't find socialising to be too expensive to afford, but rent did cost more than my previous living areas (although it was within my expectation of cost of living in London)
3 /5

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

Definitely can find loads of places to go out easily
5 /5

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

I was involved in couple of volunteering activities, and there are many societies in the organisation.
