    Wait I'm confused. Do uni 1st years apply for SW or the 2nd years? Isn't it a bit too early to apply if you've just started uni?

    1st years if you're in a 3 year course and 2nd years for 4 year course.

    Right cheers for that. So I'm doing a 4 yr course so essentially this year I should just be focusing on racking up those ECs and getting a decent first year grade basically?

    I probably will be applying for SWs, although I'm unsure as to whether I want to do 4 years. Afternoon session or morning? You may see me at the Festival, haha.

    Would anyone know if there are any places at all that accept 2nd year students on a 4-year course for summer internships or like, " yl95 " said above, should I just be looking at the Spring Weeks?

    Haha, 'SECURE YOUR SPRING WEEK' was their advertising slogan for the event, written in large capital letters. Merely following up to see how many SW offers everyone got from attending

    Nice one. A mate of mine only ended up with a CS FO graduate offer and seemed pretty upset. Said he wouldn't be recommending Bright Network to anyone after that experience

    I think it was a good event. Not great, but definitely worth attending; and yeah this "secure your spring week" is absolutely 100% bull****, although if you do come off as likeable by the reps you talk to and follow up, it might seriously increase your chances for an interview (I guess).
