    I have applied for many internships in investment banks but i have been declined from the majority. I am at Plymouth uni, but have obtained a 1st for my 1st year, and am on line to get a 1st for my 2nd year.

    Is there anyother companies that would give me valuable work experience/internships for when i finish my degree and apply for actual banking jobs?

    Thanks in advance for any advice

    With a degree from Plymouth you'll struggle to get anything more than a Back Office position and even that's pushing it. My advice is to network like hell if you have contacts and get onto a good masters course.

    Don't offer London internships.

    Apply to as many places as you can is my advice... based on my experience of currently applying to places from a non-target uni, albeit one that is ranked higher than Plymouth.

    edit: I should note that I've only got rejections and interviews so far (though a fairly good ratio between the two ), no actual job to justify what I'm saying
