Our school sent us an opportunity to register for the Investin Investment Banker Summer Internship in 2020 Summer at UCL for either 2/5/10 days. I was wondering if it's worth doing and if anyone have done it before? It's 1350 pounds for five days, which seems to be quite unreasonable. They mentioned that it will include a Private Experience-day, Cutting-edge trading simulation and a Private networking session.

there are free insight days that banks run which is likely to be a lot more valuable- apply to those

My son has registered for a 10-day engineering internship, including an internship in Italy. Ironically, they offer options that we can cancel, but points can only be used for next year's bookings or rebooked to this year once the situation stabilizes. This is not an option! The benefits are entirely theirs! This is unfair treatment! Don't take classes at this company!

i am in the exactly same situation! i booked a half internship for investment banking and they are not providing return of funds even if i am from another country that has completely shut its borders. they are offering a live and online version but its value is completely incomparable to the original programme

I think they make an application look worse, in my opinion.

Yeah exactly, it doesn't "show interest", it just shows you're well off.

Yup, and that’s not a personality you want to work with imo

My son has registered for ten days engineering included trip to Italy. Ironically that we can cancel it but the credit can only used to book for next year or book back onto this year if once things can be settled down!!! This is not an option, the interests are completely theirs! This is unfair treatment! Do not take courses at this company!

The programme is already underway this summer, but the trip to Italy has been cancelled and will be refunded soon. I hope that my son do not have to continue to be isolated for 14 days.
