The EY Assurance Scholarship is a chance to experience university life while boosting your employability. And it’s the perfect way to get your career in business off to the best possible start.

How it works

Our Assurance Scholarship lasts four years. It includes a paid 4 week Summer Placement in our Assurance practice after your first year at university, and a paid, year-long industrial placement at an EY office during year three. Do well on your course and in our firm, and we could offer you a full-time job when you graduate. You’d be joining one of the largest and most successful professional services companies in the world. With 190,000 people in 150 countries, we help businesses of all shapes and sizes become the best they can be. We’ll help you do the same.
