Kick start your career

We're committed to preparing the graduates of today for the business world of tomorrow and that commitment starts before you join. It's never too early to start planning your career in business. By completing one of our Undergraduate programmes, you have the opportunity to gain experience in an inclusive business environment long before you finish university, and give yourself a head start when it comes to securing a graduate role.

Our Undergraduate programmes are designed to give you an insight into EY, an awareness of business and to help you build your employability and other valuable skills whilst you’re still at university. Programmes vary from a 1 day experience to a 12 month placement, but many will present the opportunity for you to work with our high performing teams on client projects which help build a better working world. This will give you the chance to drive lasting change, make an impact on business, the clients we serve and on your own career.

The skills, contacts, experiences and perspective you gain through our Undergraduate programmes will help you make the right career decision for you, and equip you for an exceptional career. It's important to prepare for your future in business and start thinking today about the impact you want to make tomorrow.
