Very appealing considering the structure of the graduate programme as well as the opportunities to carry out international assignments.
Very good social scene - a number of trips to cinema and pubs as well as good integration with the existing graduates.
Cost of living is above the national average but cheaper than London.
Local area is fairly quiet so not the greatest nightlife, however London is only 30-40 mins by train away from Hersham - so a good balance.
A lot of sporting and volunteering activities available!
