Social

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

All of my colleagues were very keen to include me in team activities after work. It would have been nice for there to have had a few more socials for the interns as I didn't get to see many of the other interns during the internship.

Fantastic! The team I worked with were great at taking me out and showing me the nightlife of London

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