    I'm at the irl interview stage with two software companies where I would be a paid intern doing software development. I'm also trying to plan how much money I need to raise for my potential year long exchange to the US. Does anyone know roughly how much money they SAVED from a 8-10 week summer internship? Even your hours / hourly wages would helpful, thanks

    Have they not told you what the pay is for it? Most internships are about £16k right? So take home after taxes on that is a little over £1100 per month. So 10 weeks would be about £2500 total pay.

    How much you save though is going to vary wildly depending on your living costs, I wouldn't bank on saving a huge amount unless you're staying at your parents during it though, that amount of money is pretty much a basic living wage, I'd struggle to save more than about £800 of that.

    Thank you, that helps a lot. Just didn't know even a ball park amount. I already live off of saved SAAS payments over the summer, so I will be able to save every penny aside from transport :P
