The Young Software Engineer Summer Experience gives students aged 15-18 a 360-degree, fully immersive experience of working as a software engineer in London.
Over the course of 15 days, students aged 15-18 will have some of the most prestigious experiences of software engineering that one can imagine: building your own app from start to finish, presenting a software architecture project to a board of directors and working on ground-breaking code used to develop autonomous vehicles.
Also available on the Experience are immersive visits to a pioneering robotics firm, experiences with a global top 20 tech firm and a visit to the University of Cambridge.
Join us for a life-changing experience that will serve as an outstanding differentiator on your university application form and set you up for a future as a successful software engineer.

As part of your booking, you will receive 12 months’ access to our state-of-the-art tech platform, AmbitionX. Here you will find all of your programme materials and complete post-programme assessments to gain coveted ‘experience points’ to demonstrate your levels of professional development. You will also be able to access any of InvestIN’s Live Online weekend and evening programmes through AmbitionX at no extra cost.
We do not anticipate any Covid-related issues preventing us from delivering the in-person programme. Any government guidance on Covid-related safeguarding (such as the wearing of masks and social distancing) will of course be adhered to. We have managed to successfully deliver in-person programmes during the Covid-19 pandemic (including during the summers of 2020 and 2021), with excellent feedback. We are therefore highly experienced in giving students a fantastic experience even with social distancing rules in place.
In the unlikely event that the in-person programme is cancelled because of Covid-19 then students will have two options: i) move to the next in-person date; ii) move to the ‘Live Online’ version of the programme you selected and be refunded the difference in price. (If you pay via credit because you postponed a previous booking then the credit note will be reissued to you in full).
If you are trying to register and the registration box is not appearing it is likely because of firewall restrictions on your desktop device. You may wish to try on your mobile device instead. Alternatively, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the programme you want to register for. We will reserve your place immediately and send you a link to pay by card online.
