The Aspiring Professionals Programme

 The Aspiring Professionals Programme runs from year 12 onwards and offers:

  • University application advice (including university visits and Oxbridge & Medicine specialist support)
  • Mentoring- students are matched with a mentor in their desired career sector
  • Skills sessions with top employers
  • Internships and work experiences


Employer Insights Programmes 

When applying, you can also apply for Employer Insights Programmes, which have internships in Summer 2024.

The majority of insight programmes take place in London, where students will live in university accommodation, complete an internship at a top firm during the day and take part in activities during the evening and weekends. This is all completely free of charge. 

This year we offered employer insights in finance (J.P. Morgan), law (Freshfields, Linklaters, Herbert Smith Freehills, White & Case and Akin Gump), engineering (bp), medicine (England only) and business (PA Consulting Springboard). We are expecting to run similar again in 2024, although this is subject to change.

The closing date for applications is 12pm Friday 15th December.
