The InvestIN Young Investment Banker Programme was a fantastic experience which gave me a fantastic insight into investment banking and the financial industry as a whole. The speakers were all confident and experienced in their fields and were able to inspire and advise those who attended the course. I am forever grateful to those who put the time in to helping me decide on what I would like to do for my future career and thoroughly recommend this course to anyone looking for a fantastic day of learning.

Eleanor Barnett ★★★★★

InvestIN's Young Lawyer Programme is the best experience in law I have had to date! Excellent organisation; the team was so welcoming. I've gained lots of material to look over and met lots of professionals who have given me valuable advice and support! Well worth attending if you have an interest in pursuing a career in law.

Ace Edge ★★★★★

I attended the Young Engineer Programme and it was so awesome as I gained an experience that was challenging and productive. As well as, I made friends that have both similar and different interests from me and at times where I had absolutely no clue how to approach a question (partially because I was one of the younger years attending), there were people, both experienced professionals and other students willing to give their input and help where needed. 

Lewis Thornton ★★★★★

My experience at the Young Lawyer Programme was incredible, I gained so much information regarding both the role of solicitors and barristers. I would recommend this event to anyone who plans to study law and/or pursue it as a career.

Gaurav Samnani ★★★★★

The Young Investment Banker Programme: Incredible experience - never would have been able to work with so many investment bankers and put on my UCAS otherwise!

Manpreet Kaur ★★★★★

I attended the Young Doctor Programme and honestly it will always be one of the best experiences of my life. I gained valuable knowledge from Doctors from a range of specialities as well as a very fun session on suturing. Ultimately, you stay in contact with the professional team so they are able to answer all questions you may have long term which is so rewarding and useful.

Lisa Briggs ★★★★★

My Daughter took part in the Young Doctor Programme in London. She thoroughly enjoyed it - very informative, amazing staff. A fantastic day all round. Really helped in her decision to aspire to become a Medic. Would definitely recommend.
