Frequently Asked Questions

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 Dubai and 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.

Our programmes are designed to offer attendees the ultimate experience of a profession. Our hands-on activities and exposure to a range of professionals give students a unique chance to immerse themselves in the world of a specific career not usually available to school students. Attendance of an InvestIN programme also demonstrates you have gained a variety of key skills, enabling you to boost your UCAS/college applications and have something powerful to talk about at interview. You will also gain a network of top professionals in your desired career before starting university, in the all-important race for the top internship and graduate roles.

There is no application required to attend our programmes, as we feel that passion, ambition and a willingness to commit to your future is enough. Our programmes, however, are extremely popular and are often full several months in advance. We offer our places on a first-come first-served basis and places are highly limited.
