    It just says they're no longer available, that could just have been to say applications closed for 2016.

    If you look at the other opportunities, they make it clear when something is closed. And, they've also stated to email them directly if people are still interested in getting some work experience there.

    When is the best time to be applying for spring weeks? I've been advised around November time so was planning on leaving everything until then, but just wanted to check that I shouldn't be sending in applications earlier

    Thanks
    Late Sept to early Oct. Some open later however and some banks are non-rolling (GS).*

    Couldn't be bothered looking up the dates myself 😏 do you guys know if it's possible to complete 2 or 3 Spring weeks or do they happen at the same time at all the banks?

    Yes it's possible since they don't all clash (bearing in mind that GS lasts 2 weeks), but it should be the least of your concerns...

    Most is competency with the odd commercial awareness here and there. Others can up the ante and ask for some technical stuff - I'd prep for anything

    How do would you prepare for commercial awareness? Just reading up on news stories about the respective bank and of course follow the media and market situations?

    I've bought Rosenbaum's IB book and hope it will be enough for preparation!

    Would prefer not to say, it'd probably identify them

    Was he open to the other banks about doing the other spring weeks/internships, since it would be easily verifiable? Wouldn't it have a chance of backfiring and seeing you as less dedicated individual (ie BSing all the way through)

    Don't think they had issues tbh.. It was fairly easy to say no to offers that clashed and leave the ones that didn't. Even rejecting multiple summer conversion offers was fine for them.
