Accounting and professional services Programme

The London Brookes College Accounting and Professional services programme is designed to give students the best possible chance of entering a Russel group University. The college offers dedicated guidance and preparation to ensure the best chance of success. Entry into the Russel Group Universities is not based on solid academic achievement alone.

Applicants receive:

  • Advice on sixth form subject choices and courses.
  • Support for work experience placements.
  • Weekly forums including:
  • Introductions to volunteering positions in the wider community.
  • Interview practice
  • Expert knowledge of university entry requirements.
  • Exclusive access to our expert and dedicated Careers Advisers.
  • Talks by University students and successful professionals in the field.

This sector refers primarily to the firms hired by companies to provide expert advice and to undertake professional services such as auditing, tax, consulting, advisory, actuary, corporate finance and legal services. The top recruiters in the accounting and professional services sector are the so-called ‘Big Four’ audit firms: Deloitte LLPKPMG, and Ernst & Young, which all have excellent graduate schemes. Indeed, Deloitte and PriceWaterhouseCoopers are two of the biggest graduate recruiters in the UK. The opportunities for career progression within this sector are excellent – to the point where many stay with the same firm for their entire career – and graduates with brilliant brains for business, finance or law are quickly able to increase their income from already generous starting salaries.
