    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • The day started with a fun ice-breaker then went on to introduce the undergraduate opportunities. A panel with current undergraduates then followed and I was able to ask questions. After a break was a guest speaker session and then a panel session with representatives from the Bank's networks to finish.
