    I don't think so as it's not mentioned on their website. You could always just ring and ask them.

    To be honest, all I know is what is written on their website. I'm going to the b'ham one next week and hopefully, it should be good.

    go and you'l find out! I think if u want to learn about roles in greater depth these kinds of things are the best, i dont know if the one in brum was just for graduate applications i.e. 3rd yrs/those who have left, but im hopefully going as well!

    Yep, I'm staying in b'ham. To be honest, I haven't received much info- the dress code is smart business casual. I'm shadowing the Employer Solutions service line, what about you?

    I've been to this.

    The first day involves presentations and business games, dependent on which service lines that particular ToD is on.

    The second day is shadowing.

    I've been to an Audit one and a Tax one.

    Audit the second day was v.useful involving actual shadowing at a client site. 9am-6pm

    The tax one the second day wasn't actual shadowing but was assigned to a particular buddy for the first few hours then the rest of the day was a few short presentations and a game or two, as well as a lunch, similar to the first day, I found it useful, though those expecting work experience/shadowing may have been disappointed slightly.

    In both cases the first day was fun games and presentations pretty much Deloittes one day Insight Day event.

    Make sure that you have submitted an application, which is similar to the actual Deloitte appliction. On both ones I went to a few people had turned up without having done so. The registration process can be slightly confusing.

    Is this any different from 'Inside View'?

    It's supposed to only be for first years, but sounds rather similar- Games, presentations &c, except with no shadowing. Does anyone know if they pay for accom/travel for this also? Warwick is plenty far from me!

    studios do u shadow on your own or with others and do they give u application tips? also what did they say to those who turned up without filling out form?

    this one is for anyone/years to attend BUT you need to complete the app that gets sent to you, tho if u were to turn up i doubt theyd say no as its more of an open day.
