Audit Programme: University of Birmingham

Located in the UK’s second city, Birmingham Business School at the University of Birmingham is one of the most popular places in the UK to study business.

KPMG’s School and College Leaver Programme at the University of Birmingham will give you the exciting opportunity to work – and develop ideas – alongside world-leading academics.

Their vision is to inspire today’s brightest students to make a major impact on a global society, and help them to become the leaders of tomorrow in whichever field they pursue. They’re committed to providing you with the best possible teaching, research facilities and support services, to make sure you reach your full potential.

Who can apply?

First and foremost, the University is looking for people who want a career in business, recognise the value of an accountancy qualification and are joining as a school or college leaver. You’ll also need to meet our minimum entry requirements.

Studying at Birmingham

Not only will you gain a globally recognised degree in Accountancy; you’ll also get significant work-place experience and full accreditation by ICAS. So you can expect to achieve Chartered Accountant status two years after graduating. 

You’ll also have the chance to combine your academic studies with opportunities to apply what you’ve learned in a professional environment with a world-leading organisation.


Please note, all positions to the Audit School and College Leaver Programme for 2016 start have now closed. Applications for the 2017 programme will open later in the autumn. We encourage all students who are interested in 2017 positions to stay in touch with us by joining our our Smart Network.
