Get ready for your summer experience

Thank you for completing your student enrolment form.

On this page you will find all the key information you will need for your experience including programme timetables, information on our accommodation and arrival and departure information.

Both parents and students will also receive a separate email inviting you to join Reach over the next couple of weeks, an online platform we use during the students' experience for registration and other important things. Please ensure that you set up your account and log your arrival and departure information as soon as possible. You will find a full user guide for Reach on this page.

We look forward to seeing you this summer!

Information We require

Student Enrolment Form

You will have already filled this out, and a member of our team will have reviewed it and signed it off. However, if any information changes including updated contact details or medical information please get in touch as info@investin.org to let us know as soon as possible.

Arrival and Departure Information

Non-residential students should arrive at UCL at between 10am and 10:30am on the first day of their experience for an 11am start. Their first day will finish at 5pm.

Each day the Summer Experiences will run from 11am-5pm, unless the students are on an excursion that requires coach travel. These days will be indicated on the students timetable.

Please note, students will be required to register each morning of their summer experience, and so should aim to arrive 30 minutes before the Summer Experience start time.

Filming and Photography Policy

We take pictures and videos of our Summer Experiences to celebrate the students' experiences, and these images sometimes get used on our website or other InvestIN platforms. We completely understand that not everyone is comfortable with being photographed so as part of your enrolment process you will have been given the opportunity to opt in or out of having your student’s photo taken.

Frequently asked questions

How do I find out the location and timings of each day?

You will be able to find out the location and timings on your agenda. Please click the link above in the timetable section of the page.

Is there a dress code?

There is no official dress code. We encourage students to dress smart casually for their programmes, essentially no tracksuits. There will be days on certain programmes where students will need clothes they don’t mind getting messy; if this applies to you, you will be told in advance.

Can I be in a group with my friends?

Groups are allocated by the programme chosen; we cannot guarantee any specific friendship groups being put together.

Does my parent need to drop me off/pick me up?

Parents are welcome to drop off and pick up their students from the programme, however it is not compulsory.

Will I be escorted to venues?

We ask that our non-residential students meet us at the venue, unless the students are getting a coach to a venue, this will be indicated on the timetable.

Can I go out for lunch?

Students on our Young programmes are welcome to go out for lunch during their free time if they wish.

What do I do if I'm ill or unable to attend the day?

For non-residential students, please email info@investin.org as soon as possible. If it’s a planned absence, please log a Leave Request on Reach for approval by the InvestIN team at least 48hours in advance.

What do I do if I'm running late?

We understand that sometimes you are delayed on your way to your programme due to transport issues. We ask that you get in contact with us at info@investin.org as soon as possible.

Is there any pre-reading?

There is no pre-reading or prior knowledge expected before attending your Summer Experience. We just ask that you have a genuine interest and enthusiasm for your chosen programme!

What meals are included?

We do not provide food to non-residential students.

Can I have my phone during the day?

InvestIN is not a school and therefore does not hold the same rules regarding the use of mobile devices on-site. InvestIN allows students to have possession of their own devices throughout their time with InvestIN. However, InvestIN are very clear with students about when it is and is not appropriate to be using their mobile phones during the education programmes and activities. Unless advised otherwise, students are required to store their phones and pay attention to the speaker and programme content.

When do I get my certificate/ reference letter?

Students who are attending a 1 week experience will get a digital certificate shortly after their programme. Students on the 2 week experience will receive their physical certificate at the graduation ceremony on the final day and industry reference letters will be sent out in September.
