5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

I was much busier than I thought I'd be! We were set internal projects so if there were times when there was no work to be done for the company, there was something to be working on.

6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

It certainly helped with my final year at uni. A lot of the stuff you learnt can be applied in a practical sense to the theory you learn at uni.

It was also an excellent insight into the auditing industry.
