    It's a thing for sixth formers from disadvantaged backgrounds who want to get into banking/consulting/law/tech. You can get work experience through it.

    Has anyone here on TSR done it? I'm honking of applying to it when it opens but I'm not sure whether it's going to take up a lot of my time.

    I don't think so, on the eligibility page it doesn't mention having to live in London.

    It says "Year 11, 12 or 13". I guess you are no longer in year 13 so not eligible for the program, e-mail them or something to confirm because i am not sure,
