Application tips

Applying to an EY programme? Here’s what you need to know

If you’re applying to any of our apprentice, work experience, undergrad or graduate programmes, you’ll need to go through our online application process. Depending on the programme you are looking to apply for, the process may vary slightly and is explained below.


We’ve made it clear and helpful, so you know what to expect at every stage. And in return for the effort you put in, we’ll share personalised feedback throughout the process on your strengths and potential.


We don’t want you to miss out on the programme you're interested in so we recommend you complete the stages as soon as you can. Our assessments aren't timed though and below we outline the time it should take you to complete.


Need help? Please let us know in advance if you require any reasonable adjustments. You can call us on +44 (0)800 289 208, Monday to Friday, or email us at
