This review was submitted over 4 years ago, so some of the information it contains may no longer be relevant.
The placement was very useful in giving me an insight as to what goes on there. I was allowed to view a variety of things at the placement like surgery which I thoroughly enjoyed.
This was mainly because I was very under qualified to be working here. I didn't go in there expecting to be valued as I had nothing to offer then.
I was offered a lot of advice which guided me towards my academic choices.
The information that I got provided helped me choose certain paths I wanted to take and therefore enabled me to advance further in those areas.
There were a certain number of assignments during the day which I did which eventually fell into routine.
It was fine. No violence in or around the building. everything was calm and quiet, There was always a sense of excitement around us.
I received no investment from the company, This is mainly because I didn't need to be invested in. My placement only required my presence.
The insight was a direct windows as to how my life would would look like if I were to be in it as a full time career.
Extremely, since it is already well known for its culture. This gave me the evidence to support these statements.
This placement helped me decide what I really wanted to do. I was initially sightly unsure as to what I wanted to do in the future but this made it all right.
No. I was pretty much alone during the placement.
Yeah. They usually have meet ups outside of work where they can socialize.
Yes definitely. I had tonnes of fun during the placement.
