Which London Uni to get into a Big 4?

    • Thread Starter

    I would like to study Accounting at a London Uni, please could you rank the below unis which would be best to go to in order to get into a big 4 accounting firm, failing that a mid-tier firm like Grant Thornton or BDO?
    - Queen Mary University of London
    - City Uni of London (Cass Business School)
    - Surrey
    - Royal Holloway

    Also any advice regarding experience - should I try to get work experience in a local accounting firm for a week here and there before I apply to first year internships etc? Do these firms do internships in first year or only summer internships after second year?
