During the summer, UVI students Fatemeh (Year UVI) and Naima (Year UVI) took up bursary places on 5-day InvestIN virtual internships as part of QM's partnership programme with the organisation.
During my Young Dentist internship I got a really clear insight into the profession and all the skills required.
Sessions involved dental technology, the UCAT exam, UCAS applications and alternative routes into dentistry. This was a very helpful opportunity that gave me a better vision for my future.
Each day was very different and the programme was amazing at getting young people involved by answering and asking questions. This amazing opportunity has directed me to a smoother path for my career.
During my Young Investment Banker internship I had the opportunity to learn from and engage with a variety of like-minded students and professionals from across the globe. They were specialised in fields such as sales, trading, research, asset management, private equity and capital markets.
I grasped a better understanding of specific skills and experiences required to take on each of these demanding roles. Overall, it was an incredible learning experience.
