    It's a travel agency that have been commissioned to support those who live a significant distance away from London/the bank. I don't imagine you'll be reimbursed for travel given that you live in London.
    Um why not travel us travel they will reimburse just because you live outside London does not mean you get any more privileges than those who ate Londoners.

    Londoners probably have more flexibility as it is JUST travel fair they have to reimburse not accommodation.

    Impressive, are you more interested in Law then or keeping your options open in terms of IB? I've firmed LSE for September, just couldn't keep away from London.

    Fair enough, better to have more than one option.
    Been lucky to live within travelling distance of London, it's a great place!

    Got a call from RBS this morning for the 12th and 13th of August event

    (Original post by navennn)
    Hi, got a place for RBS on the 8/9th August. Guy on the phone said it's at Bishopsgate and that it is 10am-6pm both days. He was talking about the dates I was attending but I don't see any reason why it should be different from the others. Everything else he mentioned was already on the email.

    Question though, I feel as if I'm underprepared, like I don't know much about banking but I'm only 18 so am I expected to? Anyone have any suggestions on what to do before then to prepare?

    (Original post by printergirl)
    congrats on getting in, the london one? have you had the follow up email yet about exact time and location? the email says you're supposed to get it in a few days (its been 2 weeks now!) and the rbs site still says my application is under consideration

    (Original post by Mr Inquisitive)
    Has anyone else who's been accepted for RBS (Aug 1st-2nd, in particular) heard anything else? We were supposed to get another email within five days, or something

    (Original post by Part A)
    I'm Aug 1st-2nd, not heard anything since the initial email. Have booked my train tickets and received an email from RBS saying they will book accommodation shortly..

    (Original post by yaboy)
    are they paying for your accommodation aswell?

    I got 12/13 after getting rejected by every other insight day, they're not even paying for my travel because I live in london lol

    (Original post by 3DDY)
    Ill be up for 5 to make sure I catch my 6am train (3 hour journey), early start isnt an issue tbh, lucky to be picked and it will be worth it. Hopefully will see some of you there on the 12 and 13th session.

    Dear All

    I would like to ask a favour from any of you if that's okay. Would anyone who has dates for 1st/2nd August, 8th/9th August, 12th/13th August, be willing to take up a date for September in London? The reason I ask is because I am abroad on 24th August so was only able to take 20th/21st August in Edinburgh, but I've just been told that's very likely going to be cancelled due to lack of interest. I would love to go attend the event and seeing as uni starts in october for most of england would it would be great for me if someone would be willing to call up rbs and mention me and say that you're willing to swap?

    If this is possible for anyone and you're willing to go through this hassle then PM or reply to this, I'd be very grateful!

    Sam, I've just realised our TSR pics are so similar that I'm actually confusing your posts for mine when scrolling through the thread haha
    Have you received any news about your accommodation yet? I got an email saying that they'd book it for me, but I expected some sort of clarification

    Hey guys,

    I'll be going to the insight day on the 8th/9th of august and got the formal letter with the location etc today,

    but i'm a bit confused as to where it is, on the letter the address is 135 bishopsgate london but the postcode is EC2M 3UR which according to google maps i don't think is the Bishopsgate address,

    when i just search for the bishopsgate address on google it comes up with a different location on google maps with a postcode of
    EC2M 3TP so i really don't know which one is right

    would appreciate any help

    It's at 135 Bishopsgate, near Liverpool Street underground and opposite Pizza Express, that's the right building .

    It's marked ABN AMRO on Google Maps and not RBS. Awkward, haha. It says RBS is the building next to it but the whole thing is RBS.

    I've still not got the official formal invitation for the 8/9th August? Anyone else got it/not got it?

    I've got the accommodation email for the 8th of August and from what I understand, we can leave our luggage at the hotel on the first morning but what do we do on the second morning?

    I don't have a letter through the post for my 12/13 event but am confidant with the emails and correspondence, so don't let that deter you. If you still are, give them a ring. Also with the accommodation, you check in on your first evening and check out on the second morning at the specified times. However as the second day starts at 7.30 am you'd obviously make sure you are out for that time anyway. Hope this helps.
