Accountancy firm: No evidence university means success

Ernst & Young said that there is “no evidence” that a university degree will lead to future success.

The decision came after an 18-month analysis of the firm’s student selection process.

Academic qualifications will still be taken into account and indeed remain an important consideration when assessing candidates as a whole, but will no longer act as a barrier to getting a foot in the door.

Our own internal research of over 400 graduates found that screening students based on academic performance alone was too blunt an approach to recruitment.

It found no evidence to conclude that previous success in higher education correlated with future success in subsequent professional qualifications undertaken.

Students will no longer be required to have a minimum of 3 Bs at A level and a 2:1 degree classification to make an application.
