    Where did you hear that they only take 5 people?

    It says on the website that part of the programme is to go to a 5 week expedition in a foreign country and you can choose out of three different countries. I wouldn't think they would send just one or two people to one country, would they?

    I went for it because it says you're considered for the spring insight as part of the application, but 5 intake is very Low if true and Barclays int was now nearly 2 weeks

    I think he is talking about this article on Linkedin:

    Our UBS Horizons program provides students graduating in 2017 with the opportunity to travel abroad and work with Raleigh on a community or environmental project in the summer of 2015. The aim of the program is to recruit ambitious students who, like us, believe in contributing to the community and who have a strong interest in beginning their career with us. Participating in a Raleigh expedition will enhance the skills required for students to start their career as well as provide an insight into different cultures and environments. To demonstrate these developed skills, Horizons winners are guaranteed a place on our summer internship program in 2016. This will give students the opportunity to find out more about what we do and the contribution they can make to our business.

    There will be up to 6 winners and 4 runners up for the 2015 Horizons Program. The runners up receive a place on Insights, and £500 towards a Raleigh expedition or £200 towards a UBS charity of their choice.

    Right, thanks. 10-ish people then.

    Not sure if people have seen the video on the UBS website, but seems like its more than just 10 people. Still, quite a competition.

    Anyone got any form of emails to get in contact with recruiters? I completed tests from BAML and other banks and want to drop an email to see what's happening since offers are being handed out. Fear my application may have been lost as I would have assumed a rejection would come straight after the numerical tests etc.

    Need to contact: BAML, CS, GS, Citi and JPM

    cheers
    In the same boat mate. havent heard back from GS, JPM, BAML, Citi. Have you emailed them/got a reply?
