Life at Deloitte

Exam support

The demands of studying for and passing exams in college cannot be underestimated. By the time you leave college, you have made the transition from school to university and become very used to the academic environment. The process of qualifying as an accountant, tax or consulting professional will present you with yet another transition.

Umika's Exam Success

How we help you succeed

As an Associate at Deloitte, you will have to adjust to working in a busy, professional office environment during the day and revert to the role of student in the evenings and at weekends (as well as finding time for a social life!).

We are aware that these conflicting demands can be difficult and because of this we provide students with every opportunity to keep us up-to-date with their progression.

Through a variety of communication processes - formal and informal - we listen to students individually and in groups so that our Partners, Managers, dedicated Professional Education, People & Purpose, and Learning & Development teams can respond, giving you as much guidance and support you need.


Financial support

When you join Deloitte as an Associate, the firm pays for your student registration fee, for all exemption entitlements, and for your first time course and examination entry fees.

In addition, we offer financial support in the form of up-front sponsorship for students wishing to complete a institute recognised Masters in Accounting or Postgraduate Diplomas in Accounting.


Study leave

We offer substantial periods of paid study leave based on the type of training contract you are completing, or the course of study being undertaken. The amount of leave offered is in line with recommendations made by the relevant professional bodies.

To accommodate you further, banks of overtime worked during the busy season may also be taken at this stage, or time borrowed from the firm depending on your individual circumstances. 

Study support

Deloitte Professional Education Exam Support Programme includes both live classroom and virtual workshops that include a host of topics such as introductory exam sessions, subject specific revision and exam preparation. In addition, we offer on demand learning that enables you study at a pace to suit your own needs.

Sessions are facilitated by external Professional lecturers, our own Deloitte professionals and students with recent knowledge of the exams who recount their experience of particular papers. The sessions are held both virtually and in our Deloitte Academy, which provides a supportive environment in which you can learn from each other and ask questions relating to the exam you are about to sit.

Students occasionally find themselves in situations where counselling and support meetings are appropriate. Our team is always happy to provide this at any stage.
