Is there a deadline to book my place on one of the programmes?
There is no deadline for registration however, generally we fill up approximately 6 weeks prior to the date of the programme.
What is the dress code for the programme?
We ask that students wear business smart/casual clothing so for example trousers or chinos, a shirt or smart jumper with proper shoes. Essentially no jeans or trainers.
What is the difference between the Young Investment Banker Programme and the Young Investment Banker Weekend?
The one-day Young Investment Banker Programme is for school students between year 11 and year 13, and provides students with a core understanding and experience of investment banking. The Young Investment Banker Weekend is a two-day programme aimed at university students; it goes into much more detail about key concepts and there is a greater emphasis on how to succeed in the graduate recruitment process as that is more pressing for university students.
Will there be somewhere to keep my luggage at the event?
There is plenty of room to keep luggage in the lecture theatre and many students do so. We cannot, however, take any responsibility for students’ personal belongings.
Are there any discounts available?
We offer 10% discounts to groups of two or more, and a 20% discount to groups of ten or more. To access the 10% discount, please use the code GROUP10 when checking out on our website. For individual discount codes or bursaries, please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
