More UK universities join KPMG scheme

KPMG UK has announced that two more universities and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS) have joined its school leavers programme.

KPMG’s programme secured the collaboration of Durham University and the Institute of Chartered Accountants for England and Wales in January, when it was first launched. The Big Four firm said 5,000 students have already registered interest for the six year programme intended for A-level students, which will include paid tuition fees for a business degree, an accountancy qualification and a starting annual salary of £20,000.

Exeter and Birmingham University have joined the scheme just days before the application process is due to start. Only Durham and Exeter will be offering places for 2011.

In January KPMG said it is expecting to offer 75 places in 2011, but the firm predicts the programme may account for the majority off its 400 annual trainee chartered accountant intake in the future.

School leavers in the UK will be able to apply to the programme from 10 March.
