"It broadened my horizons in terms of better showing the mechanisms behind capital markets. Essential knowledge for any student looking to enter the industry."

Student, Royal Holloway University


"I Just wanted to say thanks again for the amazing 3 day course at Instructus markets. Before this course I had my doubts about the financial industry and even what sector in the finance world was best for me. Even though it was only 3 days I now have a much better scope of the industry as well as what sector I feel I would fit into the most. Thanks for making it so casual and relaxed in the sense that you were always open to questions and discussions. I will definitely recommend Instructus Markets to my friends and classmates at Warwick."

Aleem Jiwani, Warwick University Student
