Graduating in 2021


EY Vacationer Program

You want an internship that’s more than a line on a resume. You want an experience, a challenge and a launchpad for lifelong relationships and career growth. You can find that here.

Throughout the EY vacationer program, you’ll hit the ground running with dedicated on-the-job training, coaching and technology onboarding. You’ll work alongside EY professionals on real clients – right now. You’ll get the opportunity to be immersed in EY culture, network with EY people, and experience the transformative work done for EY clients. Plus, the best bit is, if you impress us we’ll offer you a permanent position after you graduate.

When to apply

Graduating in 2021? Then this is for you. To be eligible for the Vacationer program, you must be in the penultimate year of your degree.

Applications for the EY Vacationer program close on the 26th March 2020.

“The best thing about the EY vacationer program for me was the ability to ask as many questions as I’d like, and to delve into as many areas of EY as possible. You’re given the opportunity to meet several extraordinary people, catch up for lunches and evening drinks, along with gaining some valuable insights from those who have achieved so much in their careers to date. Take every opportunity that is offered, you won’t regret it once! You’ll not only come out having shown EY what you’re truly capable of, but you will have made some friendships along the way that will last a lifetime.” Emma, Perth

Melbourne Co-Op

When it comes to finding out what an organisation's like, nothing compares to working there.

During your co-op year, you'll work with our clients, access our learning resources and gain experience similar to that of a first-year graduate. Our Co-Op Program allows you to work with us for between nine and twelve months before beginning your final year at university. You’ll graduate a step ahead of your peers, and we might offer you a full time job – potentially at a more senior level than other graduates.

You'll enjoy the support of a 'buddy' to help you settle in and a counsellor to help you plan your development. You'll have your own areas of responsibility and may even be offered a full-time position with us after you graduate.

If you’re passionate about a career in professional services, we encourage you to apply. We're interested in talented students from a range of disciplines including accounting, commerce, business, finance and law.


To apply for our Melbourne Co-Op Program, you are required to be:

  • In your penultimate year of study and willing to defer your studies for 2020 to undertake the full-time placement OR
  • Required to complete a one year placement with an employer prior to your final year of university studies
