The Culture

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

The social scene was great fun amongst the other placement students. We meet up at least twice a week and had some great nights out in London. It really depended on how much you wanted to get involved with the others on the placement.
4 /5

Very expensive but still a lot of fun. I managed to break even after my placement, which I thought was a thorough success.

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

Yes, I was involved in the Savills hockey team and even scored the odd goal. If I manage to get a job with Savills, I will be joining their hockey team as soon as possible.
