Getting involved as a student is one of the best ways to find out if we share that same purpose and drive to make things better. We have a number of different options, from brief work experience programs to a year-long Industrial Placement. You'll benefit from professional experience and coaching, as well as insights into what life here is really like. It’s also an opportunity to get to know us a bit better and start building valuable relationships.

Leadership at EY programs
Accelerate your understanding of professional services and develop your leadership skills with courses designed to introduce you to our culture, people and practices — the cornerstones of our success.
Many countries offer a wide variety of programs that combine group activities, discussions and training to help you build teamwork and communication skills. If you show the qualities and strengths we’re looking for, we’ll invite you to interview for an internship or full-time opportunity with us. Find out more.
International Intern Leadership Conference
If you join us as an intern, you’ll have the opportunity to qualify for our annual three-day leadership conference, held in Orlando, Florida. It gathers our most talented interns from around the world to show them the scope and range of possibilities that EY opens up. It’s inspirational, high-energy, hands-on learning, and with interns from more than 200 countries, it’s a fun way to begin building your international network.
If your degree requires a year in industry, or if you’re looking for a year’s work experience, this placement can give you 12 months of valuable business know-how.
Working within our Assurance, Tax, Transactions or Consulting practices, you’ll be performing a role similar to that of a new graduate. From the outset, you’ll be working on real client projects and will contribute to a variety of work across a range of sectors.
It’s good to apply early as positions are limited and we’re always over-subscribed.
Work experience programs
Work experience programs are designed to equip you with the basics to be part of a client-facing project team. After training, you’ll go straight on to contribute to live projects and gain valuable insights into professional life. Find out more.
Be open to opportunities and experiences. With each experience, you’ll learn something new, make a connection, create a network and open up new possibilities that weren’t there before.

Global student experience program
Few things broaden your horizons like living and working in a different country, which is why the global student experience program offers international assignments in major cities around the globe. Immersing yourself in a new culture and challenges gives you the opportunity to grow by collaborating with people of diverse backgrounds — both professionally and culturally.
The four-week program starts in your home office before transferring to another EY office overseas; then you’ll come home to finish up your internship. Flights, housing and work visa costs will be paid for by EY.
