    I've seen:
    GS/MS/Citi/Nomura/JPM/Barc

    And of course all the off cycle schemes at various banks.

    Are you sure about JPM? I just read the description of the SA position and it says "you must be a penultimate-year university student"

    Maybe they changed this year..

    Is it pointless to apply without relevant work experience and finance-related ECs? Studying at a target with top GPA at least... I know I'm dumb.

    Would just like to inform everyone that JPM has opened their application.
    Barclays and UBS too.

    Does anyone remember from last year which banks allow to apply for SA as a final year student?
    Pretty sure Blackstone do.

    My friend just graduated and is doing a summer internship but he is doing an MSc after.

    Anyone know anyone who has landed a BB summer internship from a non-target uni? I'm at Sussex University, so decent but not target. I did manage to get a spring week with Canaccord and was the only non-Cambridge/Warwick student on it, but GS (which I applied to the other day) is probably a long shot. Thoughts?

    Well of course. If you are in your final year and next year you´ll start a MSc you will be treated like a penultimate year student everywhere. But I am starting my MSc this year.

    No probs will just apply to Grad. Higher Risk - Reward

    This is based on me wanting to apply last year and noticing it, and I wouldn't have applied for advisory, so most likely PE.

    It is obviously more difficult, specially the top firms like GS. Tier 2-3 BB more possible, still challenging. Apply everywhere and get experience. If you are really focused do a MSc in a top school after graduation.

    I know a few guys that went to totally non-target unis and ended up in a top 3 BB after a relevant internship and a top MSc. One did internship in Canaccord the year before if I am not mistaken.

    OK cool, thanks. Pretty much same thoughts as me. I intend on doing a finance-based MSc at a top business school so hopefully that'll give me a head-start going into graduate positions.

    Yes, there have been plenty before and I'm sure plenty going forward. I'd suggest networking, like now.

    I know people from Man Met and London Southbank who are in FO at BBs, no Masters at all even.

    Found an email from JPM HR which says for summer, you MUST be one year away from graduation (whether that be undergrad or MSc).
