KPMG Cyprus in collaboration with the University of Cyprus and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) has designed an innovative internship programme aiming to accelerate your career.

The main idea of this program is to provide you with the opportunity to gain real-life work experience, develop new skills and an insight into Life at KPMG during your university years. Your time and experience gained during the internship(s) will count towards 450 days of working experience required by the ICAEW to become a Qualified Chartered Accountant and therefore allow you to complete this requirement earlier!

You can join KPMG by choosing one of the below options:

  • Option 1: one period of a 5-months duration (January-May) in one of our teams in Audit & Assurance, Tax and Advisory.

At the end of the 5-months internship programme, you will have the opportunity to secure an offer for a permanent position to pursue the ACA qualification after you graduate and/or the opportunity to attend a second 5-months internship in the following year.

  • Option 2: two periods of 5-months duration (January-May) in one of our teams in Audit & Assurance, Tax and Advisory.

This program secures your participation in two 5-months internship programs and an offer for a permanent employment and training contract for the ACA Qualification, from day 1.

Once you graduate you will:

  • Complete 5 or 10 out of 36 months of work experience required by ICAEW in order to become a Qualified Chartered Accountant depending on the above options
  • Gain experience through 1 or 2 full-time paid internships in KPMG, working with highly caliber professionals in the industry and interact with an international network of KPMG members
  • Achieve the completion of 12 out of 15 ACA professional examinations subject to ICAEW requirements
