    I think I'll get them ready to send off before the end of Sept/start of October. The Bright Network will cover a good 90% of them tbh so I don't think we'll have to wait too long.
    Ah, I decided against going to that, so I guess I'll wait!

    Will you be applying to any other Spring Weeks that aren't IB (e.g. Big 4)?

    Ah that's too bad - was it about travel in the end?

    I hear EY do some Spring programmes, so I might check those out, but I'm not too interested in the Big 4 apart from that. How about you?

    Well a lot of them recruit on a rolling basis for a start. However, now definitely is a bit early..
    Great thanks for this. I am waiting for uni I think - at least until the Bright Network investment banking day.

    Yeah, pretty much.

    I'll apply just in case I get nothing else, I guess.

    Nothing wrong with that at all. Lots of people wait until mid-end of October and are fine.

    I'll be doing the same. I have very limited experience as it is hard to find.. EY insight Day, two weeks work experience at JP Morgan campus in bournemouth & that IB bright network day.

    How are you guys 'buffing' your CV up haha??

    Not sure if the OP is still around but it would be amazing if someone had a post on the first page to add when programmes have opened!

    Just a heads up, the RBS SW options look incredibly limited at this stage. Not sure if they're yet to add more or what, but it's quite dire at the moment

    Would it be advisable to wait until I start uni (October) before applying, so I can get advice and what not? Thanks

    Where are the options? All I've been able to choose is the general 'Corporate and Institutional Banking' SW?

    Depends on how ready you feel you are. There's no harm in waiting until October.

    I know I'm wanting to do it and apply, I just really don't want to screw up any applications, plus my CVs not ace...

    Services, tech, retail, and C&IB. I think it might be worth using the RBS app as a dummy one.

    Hi everyone,

    So I got into Southampton Uni today. My results weren't the best, they're ABB which isn't a disaster but I know isn't great in terms of applying to SW and careers in IB.

    Just posting to ask you guys whether you think I've got any chance of getting a place on SW with these results/uni.
    Wow, just read this post and thought i wrote it lol.. you are almost a clone of me?? I also got ABB, failed to get into warwick and so ended up at southampton uni, i'm doing economics but may switch to accounting and economics, wbu?

    Does anybody know if Elite Boutiques IB offer spring weeks? If yes, which one(s)?
    Thanks.

    I think everyone now knows where they will be going at university in september. Anyone at UCL for Economics?
    Ucl economics here, what type of SW are you thinking of applying for, IBD/S&T?
