Work experience for finance/economics.

Hi, I'm coming to the end of my gcses and I'm thinking about work experience in summer. Is there any good work experience for finance/economics that will help me enter a good university like LSE or Warwick?
Look on the big firms' websites.

Typically pre-university work experience doesn't make a big difference in university applications. They care far more about your academics naturally - and often pre-uni internships aren't open to everyone so are not often used heavily in the admissions process. But it can be helpful on filling your personal statement out a bit and linking what you've learnt on a-levels to the real world.

But pre-uni internships do help when applying for summer internships/graduate schemes when at university. It's rare to find a formalised internship scheme for those who aren't in year 12/13 yet, it's likely only smaller local firms offer these. Most banks offer sixth form schemes, though sometimes these are only targeted at those who fill diversity requirements.
