I've never been. But it cost £195, something I'd never pay for a few hours of information, which you could get for free online.

There are programmes such as Spring Weeks you can apply to which is for a week, and some Investment Banks pay you.

They do a one-day course for sixth formers and the weekend course is for uni students. I went on the sixth form one last year and found it massively useful. When I started first year uni I knew much more than my mates did, which has helped me a lot in internship applications. I stayed in touch with one of the bankers who taught on the programme and he's given me some really good advice - we even met for a coffee recently. The weekend course looks a lot more detailed - I think they actually teach you some complex stuff like discounted cash flow. My mate went on the Young Investment Banker Weekend recently and he said they actually do group assessment centres like they have in the actual internship process and they give you feedback on how to improve. Not everyone has family in banking who can teach you all this!
