<< Back to Penultimate Year

Are you ready to join over 300 interns on a world-class summer programme of training that puts you right at the heart of an international professional services firm? You’ll spend six weeks immersed in the fast-paced life and work at EY, working with real clients to help solve their business problems.

Oh – and as you’ll be part of a large group of like-minded people, the social side of the internship isn’t bad either.

What is it?

A six-week summer programme that gets you fully involved with life and work at EY.

To begin with, you will attend an induction to the firm. Then as the pace picks up, you’ll soon be doing the same kind of work as our graduates.

You’ll be part of a team working with our clients in one of our four main business areas: Advisory, Assurance, Corporate Finance and Tax.

Why do it?

An internship can make your career go further and faster right from the start. If your internship goes well, there’s a good chance you’ll be offered a graduate position within the team you’ve been working for. That means the pressure to find a job during your final year at university is off – you can slot back into a team you’re already familiar with once you finish your degree.

But there’s much more to it than that. You’ll benefit from the world-beating excellence of our training, career counselling and personal development coaching from a really expert mentor. And because the work you do will be similar to our graduates’ work, you’ll be able to stretch yourself and make a positive contribution.

If things go really well and we offer you a graduate position, you may be lucky enough to attend our International Intern Leadership Conference (IILC) in Florida the summer before you start full-time.

When does it happen?

We will be running two Summer Internship schemes. Scheme dates vary across our UK offices:

  • Scheme one: Monday 30 June to Friday 8 August 2014
  • Scheme two: Monday 4 August to Friday 12 September 2014

Who can join?

The programme is open to the following students:

  • Penultimate year students.
  • Final year students confirmed to be taking a gap year or enrolled on a Masters course.

You’ll need these qualifications:

  • A minimum B grade in GCSE Mathematics and English Language.
  • At least 300 (24) UCAS points at A-Level (not counting General Studies or re-sits).
  • 320 UCAS points for Transaction Advisory Services or Actuarial Summer Internships).
  • A predicted or obtained 2:1 degree.

Please note: in exceptional circumstances we will accept applications from candidates who do not meet our academic requirements. If this is your case, you will need to provide strong justification for why we should consider your application. You will also need to provide documentary evidence of any mitigating circumstances.

How do I apply?

You’ll need to complete our online application form and Strengths Assessment. We’ll send you the link when you’ve submitted your online application form.

Here’s what happens after you’ve submitted your application:

You will be asked to take our online numerical, verbal and abstract reasoning tests.

If all goes well, you’ll meet us at an interview. We’ll be aiming to discover your individual strengths, and it will be your chance to learn more about us.

Then we’ll invite you to an assessment centre day. You’ll take part in a team exercise and written case study. But the main aim is for you to see what it’s like at EY, and for us to learn a little more about your natural strengths.

Finally, we’ll decide whether you’re right for us. And you can decide if we’re right for you.
