    Hey, is there anywhere to help with filling it out?

    I'll be filling it out this weekend but I guess an academic reference would be one of your teachers. Does it just want a name or a full reference? Also which office you applying to ?

    A full letter of reference I think because you have to upload it. I'm applying to Newcastle, you?

    It should open in September, its a very competitive programme that requires online tests (numerical and verbal reasoning) to continue with the application. I'm currently revising for those tests and would be happy to help you prepare if you want.
    Here's where you apply when it opens it also explains the course in more detail:

    You pick your desired office and then complete a application process (grades and that). Then you get online tests. I'll be revising more during the holidays hope this answers your question😄

    I'm still uncertain with all the details but you go to uni part time with accommodation paid for. Then the rest of the time you will be at the office where you have to find your own accommodation. So maybe pick a office close to home.

    The Leeds office? You could choose to go with the Birmingham office if you want to stay in the same place but you'd have to pay a bit of your salary for rent. You got to go to your office for assessment day so don't pick a place too far.

    You would have to email KPMG as I also wondered the same but I can't find anything. They only recently opened so we have at least the rest of October and probs November.

    Hey, have you sent yours off yet? If not, when are you planning to apply? I'll hopefully have applied by the end of the week.
