Finance taster sessions and university support
These are a combination of academic and university support activities. Delivered by LSE’s leading academics and professionals in the field, the sessions cover different areas of finance and related fields. Activities may also include an off-site visit such as an insight day at a financial service provider, and the opportunity to “shadow” a university student and attend one of their lectures.
Pathways to Banking and Finance students from LSE and the University of Warwick have the opportunity to come together to attend a summer residential conference at the University of Warwick. The conference provides students with an experience of university life, allowing them to meet other students and take part in in-depth finance related sessions.
Pathways students will be able to apply for an insight programme at one of London’s leading financial service providers during Year 12 or Year 13. Insight Programmes normally take place during school holidays, and last year students undertook them at Deutsche Bank, Rothschild & Co, Pricewaterhouse Coopers and Ernst & Young.
All students on Pathways to Banking and Finance are offered an undergraduate mentor. Using the Brightside Trust’s e-mentoring platform, students receive regular guidance and support from their mentor.
