A Look Back

* What did you like most about the program?
  • Trips organised by Intergroup
* What could be improved?
  • The activity planning can be proved.
  • The internship company assignment
* What do you know now that you wish you knew before going on this program? It would be better if the program could build a connection between upcoming interns and past interns from the same company. Then more comments can be heard before the interns made their decision.
