    As of now I've applied for SW at:
    JPM, CS and GS.
    Are there any other open SWs?

    Still not sure if I've done the best decision as I'm looking at some finance-related part-time work from September (Clients Relations and Campus Ambassador for different firms) and I can't include that in my CV :/

    I'm sure you could mention that to representatives at networking events which banks hold at target unis if you told them you applied early.
    I suppose you could've held off the GS app till later but i dont think its a huge issue

    It'd be best to ask around at UCL but i believe most unis have some careers service or a financial careers related society where you're most likely to be well informed

    UCL EFS should have stuff going on once term starts and there's always the careers centre website for upcoming fairs/events.

    Does anyone by any chance know what the SW dates are for different firms? (Approximately - Perhaps those from last year as a reference?)

    Can you only apply to one division in JP Morgan? So you have to choose between markets and investment banking for example? Thanks

    Dates tend to change every year, but last year the bulk was in April and spread across from late March to late April

    Do you guys know which banks elaborate applications on a rolling basis? Also (this may come up as a stupid question..), do you have to wait until the start of your course in order to apply?

    Thanks.

    P.S. anyone else from York here?
