    How do I book my place?
    Simply click “Register Now” on the right to begin the registration process.
    Do I need to apply and be accepted in order to attend a programme?
    There is no application in order to attend our programmes, as we feel that passion, ambition and a willingness to commit toward your future is enough. Our programmes, however, are extremely popular and are often full months in advance. We offer our places on a first-come first-served basis and places are highly limited.
    Do I need to have prior knowledge?
    No prior knowledge is required to attend our programmes, as we introduce each topic from a basic level of understanding.
    What is the dress code for the programme/internship?
    We ask that students wear professional clothing on our programmes as you will be meeting industry executives. Essentially, avoid wearing jeans, trainers or tracksuits. Suits, chinos and other smart casual wear are all acceptable.

Once you have booked onto a programme, you will receive a confirmation email with programme-specific details about registration and programme timings.

    Lunch is not provided by InvestIN, as it is difficult to cater for the variety of dietary requirements amongst our students, However, there are many cafés and lunch spots near our venues; or you can of course bring a packed lunch.

    Water will be provided for you throughout the day.

    There will be space to store any bags and luggage at the event, simply ask a member of staff when you register.
