    If you want stuff for this summer it's probably far too late now, places like the london stock exchange do offer placements i think, most of the major firms will as well..

    Its probably a good idea in the later years of doing the degree, but not really necessary before starting the course

    All work experience is good though, pack anything and everything in - don't just feel restricted to experience directly linked to economics.

    I'm going to do economics too, and have done a week at a television production company, and a week at the Financial Times, and a day at an investment bank, and applied for a 2 week placement at CSFB just before uni but i doubt i'll get it

    They're aren't many internship opportunities for pre-uni students. I would just relax, this is one of the last work-free summers you will have.

    I'm also going to apply for economics and am thinking of doing work exp. at a solicitors and/or accountants aswell as seeing what else I can get (living in London should help :cool: ). Anyway has anyone else done work exp. in either legal or accounting firms?
    Another thing is 1 week enough or should I try and get a 2 week placement?
