I really hope if you’re thinking of applying to Philips or the University of Sheffield this has helped with your decision. I had such a wonderful time travelling and working abroad. Eindhoven was such a lovely city and I made loads of international friends on placement – I just got back from visiting one of them in Zurich!
The work experience I’ve gained from the company has been extremely useful and I feel privileged and grateful to have been part of such an organisation.
