Hi,

I am currently studying a levels (bio, chem, maths and spanish) and would like a career in investment banking. I didn't know until recently that investment banking is what I wanted to do and therefore picked subjects that I enjoyed for a level. I now realize that these subjects might not get me too far if I apply.

I am a bit confused. Is there a specific degree required for investment banking? And do I even stand a chance considering I have not picked economics or further maths as a levels?

Are apprenticeships offered for investment banking?

Any advice and information about degrees and how to get in would be very much appreciated.

You pretty much have to have both of econ/further maths to get into IB. Unlucky mate.
Don't know who told you that mate.

subjects don't matter - get A*s and As and go to a good uni to study a subject you enjoy - as long as you do well academically you meet the requirements.

There’s no specific degree for it, I’ve heard of people who have gone into investment banking with a degree in Theology. As long as you excel academically and get involved with internships at uni you should have a reasonable chance of getting into it.

Thank you! But does the course I study at uni need to be a finance/economics one? How do I get into it?

Thank you! How do you get into it, do you just apply for a job in it after uni or do you have to do courses towards it?

no, you want to aim for good uni's oxbridge, lse, imperial, warwick, ucl and apply for spring week internships in your first year and do summer internships in your second
