To be eligible to apply for the course you must be aged 18-30, living in the UK, and from a BAME (Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic) background. The most important factor for your successful application will be a desire to enter or further your career within the finance or creative industries.

Workshops will take place during working hours so this course will suit those not currently in employment, although that is not a pre-requisite to apply.
