Entry requirements

We welcome applications from talented candidates of all backgrounds and each application is considered on its individual merit. Usually candidates must hold either a:

  • First or a 2.1 UK honours degree in a relevant discipline, or
  • an international qualification of a standard equivalent to a First or 2.1 UK honours degree

Applicants who do not have a degree in accounting, finance or a related business discipline can apply, provided they can demonstrate a passion for a career in accounting, finance or banking.

We accept a range of qualifications from different countries – learn more about international entry requirements.
