University Traders: Bootcamp

University Traders: Bootcamp

Tickets from £49


We believe that every student studying business and finance should have the opportunity to put theory into practice.

By doing this before they enter the job market, the student gets an unparalleled insight into the roles and opportunities open to them post-graduation.

This is what we do. We provide global financial trading and training services on campus for students who are interested in roles in investment banking, commercial banking and hedge funds.

How do we do it?

By providing a live financial markets platform that helps students bridge the gap between academic theories and the reality of working in the industry. This platform allows students to trade across multiple asset classes with live market data, providing first-hand experience of how intra-day trading actually works.

A combination of lectures, workshops and group collaborations provided by us enable the students to fully understand and partake in this experience. The final day will see the top 5 traders awarded a trophy.

Our Mission

To take students a step beyond work experience, as an impartial provider we can give our students the truth about the industry with no conflict of interest or hidden agenda.

We passionately believe this event will leave a long-lasting impression on your students, leaving them with a fun, and memorable experience acting as Hedge Fund Manager making multi-million $ decisions (Simulated).

This boot-camp concludes with a session on landing a job at an investment bank or hedge fund.

Key areas covered in this intensive workshop include:

  • Introduction to trading & financial markets
  • How to produce a trading plan
  • Investment tools & information collection
  • How to execute a trading strategy
  • Risk management
  • How to get a job at an investment bank / hedge fund


This boot-camp is delivered on-campus at your university to keep our costs highly competitive. We do not require access to a trading room to deliver this course.

We do require access to computers, and an internet connection as our trading platform is hosted online.

If required, we can provide laptops at an additional cost.


The recommended format for this event is 5 days (Monday-Friday) which is how Horizon designed the course. This can be reduced to 3 days if required.


We can provide full CPD accreditation and certificates for students at an additional cost. This is useful if the university is seeking to add additional, relevant and formal qualifications to its student CVs.
