What we’re looking for

For the BDO Summer School, we’ll expect you to have or be predicted 3 A Levels in any subject (excluding General Studies and Extended Projects) at grades A* - C. You should also have GCSEs in Maths and English Language, also at grades A* - C. Equivalent international qualifications are welcome.

We know that your qualifications and work experience don’t tell us the full story. So we’re keen to find out what you care about and love to do in life.
