Experience, charity fundraising, Indian restaurants, potential trip to India – and RBS(?!) – what do they all have in common?

 …..an Indian Summer! – a fascinating project designed to develop your skills and experience at all different levels, have fun and help others, all at the same time – supported by Prince’s Trust, RBS and Support Street Children


  • Making a personal impression at the ‘hottest’ spot in town – an Indian restaurant
  • Taking on a team challenge working with The Prince’s Trust to develop strategies to raise funds – and then going out and putting them to the test
  • Presenting your approach to The Prince’s Trust Challenge and being grilled by a panel of senior managers – just like in The Apprentice…..

…..if you win, your team travels to Mumbai for three weeks to work with a community project and spend time in RBS Mumbai offices.

For skill-development, teamwork, entreprenuership, community and development work, social enterprise – this project has them all. Whatever stage you get to in the competition, you’ll have gained something.

If you’re intrigued, find out more via the Indian Summer presentation on campus on 11th Feb (sign up online), and via their website – listen to last year’s participant wax lyrical about their experience and check out the details.

For other interesting ways to spend your summer and develop skills and experience, check out the work experience , vacation work and volunteering sections of our website, or read the Experience Works section of the Careers Service Guide.

Whether it’s an India Summer, Flying Rhinos in Africa, Employ.ed interships on campus, working at one of the many Edinburgh Festivals (pick up our Guide in the Careers Service), gaining experience in a career area you’re interested in – do something different with your vacation (as well as getting an all-important break from studies) – make it count.
