Open to RMIN Majors ONLY


Senior & Junior RMIN majors are invited to apply to participate in the 2020 trip to visit the London insurance market. Participants will learn about the London marketplace first hand by attending lectures, seminars and one-on-one sessions with Underwriters, Brokers,and Reinsurers. 
 
We will select approximately 8 to 10 students. Those students graduating May 2020 through December 2021 are welcome to apply.  

 Accommodations: Students will share hotel rooms - up to 3 students in a room. 

Is this trip right for me?  The London Insurance Market Student Trip is a fast-paced, advanced level trip. Selected students will have access to Commercial Property and Casualty insurance professionals from all over the globe. Therefore, this trip is best suited for students who are interested in pursuing a career in commercial P&C. 
All students will actively interact with the professionals -- in formal business settings, as well as, socially. Activities include lunches, dinners and receptions. It is a great opportunity to develop your networking skills while taking in the views of historic London! 

Due to this unprecedented access to the movers & shakers of the international P&C market, completion of RMIN 4000 is required. We prefer to select students who have also completed RMIN 5100S, though students enrolled in RMIN 5100S during Spring semester will be considered. 

Requirements for Student Participants:·
  • Participants must commit to the full trip, Sunday, May 17th at 8AM and returning on Saturday, May 23rd (Note: Suggest that you depart on overnight flight on Friday, May 15th. Participants will have Saturday to adjust to the time difference and explore London. Participants must be present for brunch time meeting on Sunday, May 17th.  When the program concludes on May 23rd, Participants may stay in London on their own expenses.) 
  • Participants must attend all scheduled sessions, meetings and meals while in London.
  • Participants must have, or be able to obtain, a valid passport prior to travel.
  • Participants must pay a non-refundable Program Fee of $500  by February 1st. (If selected to participate.)
  • Participants must attend three (3) one-hour Educational Sessions in April to learn more about the London marketplace prior to the trip.
  • Participants must wear Professional Business Attire on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. (Note: It is acceptable to wear the same suit several times. Therefore, it is only necessary to bring 2 complete business professional outfits.)
COSTS: Through funds provided by the RMI International Fellows and Scholars Fund, the RMI Program will pay for the flight, hotel, all breakfasts and some lunches/dinners while in London. Students are responsible for transportation costs to/from the Atlanta airport, passports, and all other costs while in London. Specifically, students are responsible for meals on travel days, all meals and activities on Saturday, May 16th (free day), one meal on Sunday, May 17th, and 3 to 4 lunches/ dinners throughout the week..  (Students responsible for approximately 7 to 8 meals in total while in London).
