Audit Programme: Durham University Business School

Founded in 1965, Durham University Business School is one of the oldest business schools in the UK. It’s part of Durham University which is one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in England.

Not only is it renowned across the globe, it's also one of an elite international group of business schools accredited by all three major quality assurance bodies. So you know you'll be in good hands here.

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 Durham

During years 1-3 of the programme, you’ll study six modules at the Business School and six modules at KPMG while working. Year 4 is spent full-time on campus, affording you the full ‘student experience’ with everything University has to offer.

You’ll benefit from a collegiate system here too, as a member of Stephenson College, based at the University’s Queen’s Campus, Stockton.
