Spring Insight Programme

Our renowned Spring Insight Programme takes place in New York each Spring and is designed to provide candidates with a special taster of what a career in financial services is like.

On the programme you'll be able to:

  • Spend time rotating across Financial Markets, CCIB Client Coverage, Corporate Finance, Transaction Banking, and CFCC.
  • Have the opportunity to explore which function fits their skillset best before selecting where they would like to complete a Summer Internship.
  • The structured programme provides a mixture of lecture-based sessions, exercises, and extensive networking.
  • Students who excel will be extended an offer immediately to join us on our New York Summer Internship Programme the following year in their preferred department.


  • Candidates must be in their first year of undergraduate study (or second year of a four-year course).
  • They must also have the right to work in the United States.


  • Participants will be evaluated during the week long placement for a place on our Summer Internship Programme in New York the following year.
  • This in turn is a pipeline for our exclusive International Graduate Programme.
