FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Which industries do you focus on?

We offer experiences in 18 of the world’s most competitive careers. These range from investment banking and law to filmmaking and video game design.

Where are your programmes held?

Our Summer Experiences are based at University College London (UCL) and the surrounding University of London campus. Students will also get the opportunity to visit top firms in the industry. Our Weekend programmes take place in London, Manchester and Dubai. We also run Live Online programmes which allows students around the world to join our immersive career experiences.

Who are your programmes for?

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.

Do I need to apply and be accepted to join an InvestIN programme?

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.

Why should I come on an InvestIN programme?

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.
