What does KPMG offer graduates and students?

Every graduate and student is on their own unique journey to find an exciting, fulfilling career path.

We offer two different programs for graduates and students – KPMG Graduate Program and KPMG Vacation Program.

KPMG Graduate Program is a 12-month development program that supports the building of key capabilities and role-specific learning, available for students in their final year of studies or recent graduates. Whereas our Vacation Program is a 4-8 week program offered to both undergraduates and postgraduates in the penultimate year of their degree.

Both programs are designed to be flexible as you are ultimately responsible for your own learning journey, with support provided to assist you in deciding what you want to learn based on your end goals.

You’ll be working across a diverse client list and deal with complex issues that will stretch your thinking and challenge you every day. With a huge range of practice areas, your career options are endless.
