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.
How much do your one-day programmes cost?

Our one-day career experiences cost £135/student. This includes:

  • Entry to the programme
  • Access to our online assessment after the programme (pass and you receive a personalised certificate)

Our one-day programmes generally start at 10.30am (11am for our Beyond Programmes). Registration is between 9.45-10.15am, to ensure you get there with plenty of time to network with other attendees before the programme begins. Once you have booked onto a programme, you will receive a confirmation email with programme-specific details about registration and programme timings.

Is lunch provided at your one-day programmes?

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.

Can you bring food and drink to the event?

You are welcome to bring food and drink to the programme.

Do you let in latecomers?

The registration desk is open until noon, but If you are going to arrive after this, please email in advance so that we can arrange for someone to be on-hand to register you.

Can I bring a bag into this event?

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

Do I need to bring anything with me?

You will need to bring your phone with you and download an app for one of the activities prior to the programme; details will be in your pre-programme email, that we will send a week before the programme date. Other than this, all you need is a pen, a notepad, and your enthusiasm! You will be provided with a booklet of materials on arrival, and throughout the programme you’ll be given the requisite equipment to participate in the simulations.
