Placements with EY

Students on the BSc Accounting & Finance (EY Scholarship) Degree – spend two separate periods on salaried placements with EY, at locations across the UK.

  • Four-week internship during 1st year (Summer)
  • All of Year 3 (July–July)

You will begin your first placement during the summer after completing your first year at University. We offer placement opportunities in a number of our offices in the UK. You will have the opportunity to supply your location preferences from the opportunities available when you apply to the programme.

Along with an introduction to the firm, you will receive detailed training on soft skills and audit during your first placement. You will also have refresher training and updates before completing your placement year. As our clients are based all around the country you may need to travel to different cities in the UK while you work on a particular audit. You will be given support throughout your placement to help you excel!

You will be paid a competitive salary for both placements – this is in addition to the bursary payments you will receive during Years 1, 2 and 4.

Lancaster University Management School and EY ensure that you are well supported throughout all your placements, and that there is always a contact person both at your workplace and at Lancaster University Management School who will provide advice and guidance to help you with any issues that might arise.


The EY Scholarship is available for 2017 entrants only.
