The eye of an intern

Ella Perriton Samsun placement

Here’s Ella with her placement supervisor Bill Skeates.

Would you like to know what it’s like to be on a placement year? Look out for regular updates from Ella Perriton, one of our Environmental Science students to find out how she is getting on in her placement year at Samsung Electronics.

I am a 2nd year University of Brighton Environmental Science BSc(Hons) student currently on placement at Samsung Electronics.

After attending the assessment day back in March (followed a 5.30am wakeup call!) I completed a challenging group activity, an independent task and two tough interviews. I was confident that if I got this internship it wouldn’t be easy, but would soon learn that due to Samsung’s fast paced nature I would experience and learn a lot.

I did get the internships and I am certainly learning a lot. I’ll be sending updates every so often to give you an idea of the kind of things you might be able to do on your placement year.
