    Whats changed? The whole application is rather daunting especially the online tests at the start. Are you preparing yet?

    They've introduced a '90-second interview' that's designed to replace initial interview stage and they also introduced the 'Launch Pad' which is I think a day where you have your assessment centre and final interview on the same day.

    Each location has it's own launch pad dates eg. Applicants who reach this stage and are planning to join the manchester office would attend a launch pad in December if I'm correct. I'm not sure if they have other launch pad dates as there only appears to be one showing on the website which I think may mean you've gotta apply early? Not sure as of yet.

    I haven't applied as of yet but if you'd like we can partner up and help each other prepare for every stage. It's cool if you don't want to but if you do, holla at me.

    Oh okay the application process is the same for both.
    The 90 second video you have to make is the only concerning change they have done, everything else seems to be a improvement.

    The forum was started for those going to apply to KPMG's audit programme this autumn. The audit programme is a sponsored degree in accounting in either Birmingham or Durham university. The 90 sec video is part of KPMG's changes to the application process and from what I have researched it is now been put into place. The website has yet to be updated I think. Hope this helps

    Hi, I think it is open for international students as long as you are in college and are completing A levels or a equivalent. The audit programme is a sponsored degree with Incorporated work placement at either Birmingham or Durham university.

    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:
