    Yeah I applied and got accepted quite a while back (October-ish 2016). Haven't got the UBS workshop invitation although a lot of my friends have. I might ask them tomorrow although I doubt I'll get to go since the deadline to reply has passed.

    So I signed up online recently and received an email inviting me to a 'registration appointment' this Friday (where I need to bring along my passport, CV, etc). What should I expect from this? Is it like an interview? Is my place already confirmed?

    Hi, I got into the programme last year and yeah you pretty much got in (unless anything has changed since last year) if have an invitation to a registration appointment, which is basically an informal interview. BUT,this doesn't mean you will be guaranteed an internship - you'll still need to go through interviews, send CVs, Cover Letters etc. with the companies that have vacancies.
