About InvestIN

InvestIN programmes offer students an immersive experience of their dream career which provide students with the confidence to choose the right career and maximise their potential. Attendees gain unique insight through simulations, seminars, Q&As with industry leaders and personalised career coaching.

We offer experiences in 28 of the world’s most competitive careers. These range from investment banking and law to filmmaking and video game design.

Our UK programmes run in London, Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh. Our international in person programmes run in New York with live online options running in Singapore and Hong Kong. We hold our programmes at top universities like UCL or NYU. During our summer experiences, students also get the opportunity to visit top firms in the industry. We are not affiliated with these institutions, but hire space on a commercial basis only.

Our programmes are aimed at passionate students aged 12-18 with a drive to know what working in a particular industry is really like. Our ‘Young’ Programmes are for students aged 15-18, while our 'Future' Programmes are specifically designed for attendees aged 12-14. Each programme is designed to offer a unique insight into the field.

Over 45,000 students from more than 100 countries have attended our programmes.

About Our Programmes

Our programmes provide students with the ultimate experience of their dream career. The hands-on simulations and exposure to a range of professionals give students a chance to immerse themselves in their chosen field, an opportunity not usually available to students. Attendance demonstrates a student’s passion for their industry, enabling them to boost their UCAS/college applications and providing an excellent talking point for interviews. Students will also gain an invaluable network of top professionals in their chosen field.

The content of the programmes is initially planned out by our expert programme management team. This content is then expanded on and delivered by top professionals in their respective fields. 

The professionals on our programmes are industry-leading, passionate individuals who wish to give students a deeper understanding of their field.

We are always looking to develop new career experiences. If you don’t see your desired career in our range of programmes, please feel free to send us an email at info@investin.org. We always love to hear your suggestions!

Our programmes take place 3 times a year; Autumn (November), Spring (March) and Summer (July-August).

Our autumn and spring programmes last 1-2 days and are held on weekends to fit around school schedules. Our flagship summer experiences last either 5, 10 or 15 days and include optional accommodation, meals and airport collection.

InvestIN weekends take place during term time. They use interactive masterclasses run by top professionals to create a high-impact experience of your chosen career. They also include expert career coaching to help you secure your dream job.

Our summer experiences take place during the summer holidays. They offer everything above, plus:

- Fully immersive, 360-degree experiences at the headquarters of top organisations

- Networking receptions with experts in their field

- Cultural experiences, walking tours, accommodation and meals. 

You can see full timetables on the individual programme pages.

Our career experiences start at £165/student for weekend programmes in autumn and spring. Our summer experiences vary in cost depending on the package. Pricing is listed on the individual programme pages.

All the programmes we offer at InvestIN are fundamentally inclusive, with no application process and no prior experience required. We strive to create a supportive environment where all students attending our experiences can gain a valuable insight into their dream career. We work hard to cater to any individual needs, and we will consider these on a case-by-case basis. In the past, we have worked closely with a number of SEND students and multiple SEND schools have joined our cost-free Partner School initiative. Should a student require any additional support, we kindly ask that they complete this form. This can also be completed by a parent, teacher, or guardian on their behalf. A member of our team will then be happy to arrange a call and discuss any necessary arrangements that may need to be made. Rest assured that this information will only be shared internally by members of InvestIN staff to ensure that we can provide the support students need. If you have any queries or would like to discuss this further, you can reach us at info@investin.org.

Benefits

Attending an InvestIN career programme demonstrates a student’s ambition and commitment to pursuing a profession in their free time. We also offer personalised career coaching led by industry executives on the best university application techniques.

After our programmes, attendees are sent a short assessment. Once they have passed this, they will receive a certificate to use on their UCAS/college applications. We are also happy to write a letter confirming attendance on our programmes as proof of the attendee’s dedication to their chosen career path.

We encourage all attendees to keep in touch with the InvestIN Industry Executives they meet on our courses. Many of our alumni have gone on to secure jobs in their chosen career after attending our programmes. In fact, some of our professionals started their career by attending an InvestIN programme!
