    I wouldn't think so, not unless you have a good degree to show them also. I know a few higher ups who work for the Big Four and what they've said is that a degree from a top university and a good background in maths is considered a prerequisite.

    What's your nationality? Big factor. Probably going to be difficult either way.

    Most young graduates are rather desperate to gain a training contract with a BIG 4 so it's not easy for any of us at the best of times. I know that most of the larger audit firms, particularly PwC do not consider ACCA trained non-degree applicants.

    I am just telling you what I was told by someone from PwC before I began my degree in A&F. Perhaps you should attempt to gain a training contract with a smaller firm before using that experience to join a BIG 4.

    Yeah to be honest it will be very difficult until you qualify and hve some decent experience under your belt. You're still young, there's plenty of time and your goals may change by then.
